note: these anubias would probably do better in small tanks like for bettas rather than in 50+gallon goldfish tanks.. they are TINY plants-look at my finger holding the micro below. *RARE* Anubias Micro Rare and extremely tiny anubias plant-smaller than petite! I've had these plants for over 2 years. Healthy algae free, snail free, duckweed and riccia free. No scuds or detritus worms from their tank either. comparison shot: micro left, petite right micro for sale, take it all all for $35 Anubias Petite Anther small leafed anubias species, but larger than micro. petite for sale, take it all for $30 Buy all the micro and petite for $60 Driftwood 2 large ghost wood pieces, LxWxH (as shown in photo) 32x12x4" the other is 30x17x4" take both for $10 ($5 each) + cost of shipping (please pm me you zip so i can calculate shipping cost) Plant shipping: I ship Monday through Thursdays 2 day priority mail small flat rate box. Shipping cost of plants is $7. If you buy everything (plants and driftwood) anubias will be shipped separately from wood to avoid damaging the plants.
Hello KoKos! I absolutely LOVE the look of driftwood! I am trying to fill out my aquascaping, currently have one piece and would like more. I was wondering if anyone knew any links with a large list of appropriate driftwoods, and what to stay away from. Or a site with tips and tricks for driftwood care/use/selection. Things I know; Goldfish shouldn't have pokey driftwood or driftwood with holes for stagant water, air or goldies getting trapped in. Graceful animals to look at but not always in practice. Driftwoods, depending on type and piece can take 2 weeks, 2 months, 1 year or will never soak enough to submerge Each piece should be boiled to remove bacteria, help submerge faster, and remove tannins (tannis? the dye stuff) Some woods like bogwoods are denser than water and sink without all the huffing puffing and extra work (and for goldfish i've seen these preferred, Lis had some beautiful pieces she posted to instagram that made me google it lol). My questions are; Some woods like Mopan i've been told turn your water red no matter how much work you do to remove the tannins, are used for tropical fish like rams, and alter your water parameters. What other woods are similar and should be avoided? What are their effects? Are some woods better for growing mosses on, like christmas, java, willow etc? What are some driftwood dangers to watch for besides what i've mentioned? I do keep Ranchu exclusively and don't have worries about large celestial eyes etc. What are some woods known to sink faster/submerge quickly? Whatever I have now took 2 weeks (plus the square slate screwed to the bottom that it came with) in order to be waterlogged enough to be held down by sand. I liked that timeframe but was looking for a wood darker than that with more character. What natural woods are okay to salvage? I live in eastern Ontario, Canada and have a MASSIVE river by me with large smooth stones, beaches, mosses and DRIFTWOOD! Rocks I have taken, boiled and bleach dipped some rocks but haven't been brave enough for driftwood since I know so little. What are some good driftwood sterilization procedures? Ive used boiling, but not a bleach dip since the wood was so porous I worried i'd have to submerge it in pure prime to remove the bleach, if even possible. Vinegar maybe? Here is my driftwood: Sorry I was being longwinded, thank you for looking. Excited to learn! -Amy
I got a big bunch of java fern and decided to super glue it to a little piece of driftwood I have. Made a quick video on how to super glue java fern (or anubias etc.) to driftwood or rocks I look terrified in that screen shot
