Hi guys,

Has anyone ever used petrified wood? I am thinking of getting some off Aqua Essentials but don't know much about it. Like what colour is it when it is submerged? I anyoner had a picture of it submerged that would be great. And any other info like if it release tannins or not would be appreciatted.

Thanks.

I remember Dan Crawford using it in a nice scape, I just had a quick look and can't find the post but it's there somewhere. If I remember it was called "--- Wilderness" or something along those lines.

I don't think it leeches any tannins.

I'm just about to try some petrified wood in a little nano scape. I got about 6 pieces from AE a few weeks back.

I'll be setting it up this week, so I'll get some pics posted fro you.

Haha, it doesnt take much to persuade me to start playing with a new 'scape !!! :lol:

I actually got 4 pieces (not 6), so this is 2 x 2kg from AE:

The tank is 12" x 10" x 8" by the way.
