Re: [APD] Re: driftwood suppliers

All the fake stuff is painted. Some of it is phenolic some
of it's made from other platsics or clay. Paint doesn't hld
up too well in the aquarium. The Hagen stuff holds up
pretty well, especially it you let it beomce covered, using
it just as a base for java fern or anuabias.

If yo don't like the real deal wood and you don't like
plastic fakewood, consider rocks -- no tannins and natural
as can be, atleast if you don't get the stuff that been
drilled for decoration. ;-)
