    for those considering buying this stuff, it's truly special.

    i've just added this to my MA scape for demonstration purposes. just to give you an idea. It's not staying in the scape although i did consider it!

    i've donated £15.00 even though the weight price is considerably less because it's awesome stuff!

    i [placed it in the big koi pond they have and it's more floaty than my best carp float!

    it's going to take some pinning down for sure.

    More is shipping out today, lots of nice clean smaller stuff, good for the 90cm to 60cm range aquariums.
    Perhaps longer if you use them in different ways.

    I have some longer boxes, but still looking for the best box to fit the wood, that's the bear/hassle in doing this.
    I have some really nice display center pieces, but they are just really hard to ship without going over the box size limitations.

    I am going to head up to another location for my own aquariums to see about different types, but this last batch should be very nice for want you folks said you wanted/looking for etc.



    Regards,
    Tom Barr
