Product Description

Mopani wood is a unique wood due to its largely contrasting 2-tone color combination of tan and dark brown. This contrasting color makes it a great addition to any aquarium needing some aesthetic properties. You will be receiving one (1) piece of Mopani wood or a pack of three (3) pieces of Mopani wood. If the pieces are smaller, we try to include at least one (1) extra. Mopani wood is one of the hardest woods used in the aquarium hobby and is very popular because it sinks immediately. These pieces of wood are great for attaching plants such as anubias and mosses to give your tanks a more natural look.

Please Note:  Each pieces will be between 3 to 12 inches in length. All pieces of Mopani wood are unique in shape and size. For this reason, please leave us a note and let us know what you are looking for. When we send smaller pieces, we try to send an extra piece to make up for it. 

Mopani wood is also beneficial to your water just like other types of driftwood. It releases natural tannins in the water which can slightly discolor your water but lowers your pH. Tannins are good for your aquarium for several reasons

  • Prevent fungal and bacterial infections
  • Natural uric acid is released causing a lower pH
  • Lower pH helps with plant growth
  • Softens your water over time
  • Creates a place for biofilms to grow leading to natural grazing surfaces for fish or shrimp

To reduce the discoloring of your water you can soak the wood in a separate container and continue to change the water until it slows down or stops all together. Adding additional activated carbon to the aquarium filter after you add it to your tank can remove any excess tannins and clear up your water.

Interesting and substantial wood pieces

I purchased a three piece package with a request that one or more of the pieces be able to stand up for a vertical look. That is exactly what I got. All the pieces are substantial and interesting. Thanks Flip Aquatics.

help I'm slaimed.

I GOT A PIECE OF THE MOPANI WOOD, AND NOT SURE HOW TO FIX IT. iT HAS WHITE FLOWING SLAME ALL OVER IT. PLANTS WOOD THE GLASS WALLS EVERY THING. LOOK REALLY BAD. I HAVE BOILED IT THREE TIMES LIKE FISH SHOP TOLDED ME TO DO. STILL REAL BAD. I would like to do shrimp as a hobb. I have a pair of cherry shrimp. I have had them for 10 months, and I just love my shrimp. They were in a 1 and half gal, tank, Its a little harder to keep them alive in such a little tank, the fish shop told me. So I have a bigger tank now and got some plants, the soil love it, alder cones, cholla wood, and Indian almond leaves, how I'm I doing so far, O.K. back to the list. Drip acclimation kits, and mineral balls, and stones, moss balls, So you can see I want to do the right thing for my shrimp. they are so funny. I'll go to one end of the tank, and here she comes swimming jumping till she gets to me, than I'll move to another spot here she comes swimming jumping to come and see me again. But with all the slim from my wood piece has slowed them down, my snail also. With me having health problems. They seem to help me to forget about my pain somethings. Nothing else can be done. But these little shrimp are giving me a new light to look forward to everyday. So if you have anything to share to a new hobbist ( Is that a word) oh well you know what I mean. Also there is like saw dust everywhere to from the wood. Help.....I can't order shrimp from you until every things working together. Have been working on this about 3 and 1/2 weeks so far. well hope to hear from you soon. From your new and forever customer.
