    I'm close to Kansas City and would like a couple of pieces of driftwood for my fish tank. It is a large tank so I would be intrested in larger pieces. Thanks,Teri

    Be careful what kind of wood you put in a tank, it's a closed system so watch the water quality carefully...I used to keep 14 tanks from betta tanks to a 235 gal, both fresh and salt... I put a really neat looking piece I found in a tank and killed all my fish, still don't know what kind of wood it was...Check your water !!!!

    Its not always the wood , but whats attached to it, parasites,mold,etc.

    Better off hitting the fish store and buy one.

    I was hoping someone had a few pieces from a tank they didn't want or need. The stores are very expensive.

    What are the dimensions of the needed driftwood pieces? I collect lots of it from the river to use as decoration. The tourists buy chunks in the summer.

    The tank is 7 foot long and 2 foot deep and 3 foot tall. So I'm looking for a large piece or two pieces.

    You might want to try Foster & Smith aquarium supplies on line thats where I get alot of my supplies. You also might want to look at getting different rocks at a landscaping company, just make sure there safe in the water. Wouldn't want to put something like lime stone in the aquarium. I got some of my rocks from different places I've traveled, like Main and New York. The rocks and drift wood look good together in aqurium with some plants. Hope this helps, Mike.

    The wood needs to be out of the water and frozen,thawed and refrozen for two years before adding it safely to a fish tank because of the bacteria and mold. So if anyone has any I'm still looking..Thanks,Teri

    i think yours has mine beat. i just got a 150 gallon aquarium. i think its 72 inches by 18.5 inches by 28 inches or somthing like that. i would love to see a few pictures of yours. i could post some of mine . i plan on it once its done. i bought 3 big pieces of lava rock for mine. once it matures it will be kinda like live rock in salt water. i even crushed it up as filter media . it never needs replaced. the tank isn't close to being done though. i'm buying special gravel . that eco-complet plant stuff. i'm looking at 250 bucks just for that gravel. but i want to grow some green plants . and my tank and all was free. so i still wont have much money into it . ploease post pics if you can. sorry i am of no help on wood. lol sounds funny

    We are working on the boat project right now but when the weather stops me from being outside I'll get back to the fish tank project and post a couple of pictures. My tank is in freshwater right now because of the cost running salt and did I mention the boat...lol...everything is expensive. I hope someone has some wood they can part with to help my fish at home life ...
