Re: [APD] Twigs?
Try www.manzanita.com or collect locally. If you go to an area
with flowing water and collect small twiggy pieces lodged around rocks,
they tend to be nicely waterlogged and the current has a habit of
removing all the outer, softer wood that tends to rot in the aquarium.
I have used similar pieces before with success. Manzanita wood, from
the afore mentioned site is also good. They are great to deal with.
