Product Description

Cholla wood is the skeleton of a cholla plant after it dies. The cholla wood is made up of a ton of holes and is hollow through the center which provides a natural cover for shrimp to hide. A big benefit of cholla wood is the fact that it grows biofilm which is a main food source for shrimp. It also releases tannins into the water, similarly to Indian Almond leaves and other natural products. Cholla wood is a softwood and will eventually break down in the aquarium. This can take many months and up to 2 years depending on size and thickness.

When added directly to an aquarium it will float and usually takes 24-48 hours to sink. To sink cholla wood immediately, it can be boiled for 2-5 minutes. Cool the wood before adding it directly to the aquarium. 

Key Features:

  • Shelter for Shrimp and Baby Shrimp
  • Creates Surface Area for Bio-film and Bacterial to Grow On
  • Releases Beneficial Tannin into the Water which Simulates the Natural Habitat of Shrimp
  • Natural Feeding Ground for Shrimp of all Types

All around this wood makes a great natural decoration with the dual purpose of shelter and a food source for shrimp.

I received some really nice specimens. I couldn't be happier with what I got. Ordering driftwood online always feels like a crapshoot but that's why I went with Flip -- because I respect their quality control. The pieces came in nice and thick and hefty, obviously harvested from very mature cholla cactuses.

Cholla Wood

Received the two 4" Cholla Wood last week. They are much bigger than I thought! So I only used one. Soaked in separate water for two days to sink. It did tan the soaking water but hopefully it wouldn't tan the tank water that much. Shrimps love it and climbed over it as soon as I put it in the shrimp tank. Glad that I bought it :)
