Overall Really Great

The only downside I had with the driftwood is that it was a lot smaller than expected, but thankfully with my tank set up currently it fit in my tank perfectly, since I added stone and decorations in. I've yet to add shrimp or fish to the tank while I wait for it to become established but I have never had a bad product from Flip Aquatics. I love the personal note and the candy too! As always I will purchase again in the future.

Beautiful driftwood!

This driftwood is such a unique piece! It arrived well packaged and was very clean, and shipping only took a few days, and fits perfectly in my 10gal :) I will definitely buy from here again
