“Forest Black Wood” is an attractive new driftwood from AFA! Obtaining this beautiful driftwood is a result of our relentless search for new, quality products to provide and share with the world of Nature Aquarium and hobbyists alike. After traveling through various countries, looking through countless samples of driftwood and rock, we happened across this obsidian hued wood that caught our attention immediately. We felt a spark of curiosity and creativity, it was love at first sight.
As the name suggests, it is dark in appearance; almost like charcoal. As it absorbs water it becomes a deeper black. Having a great number of branches that gradually narrow as you look towards each tip, with a curve that is smooth and elegant, this wood has a very unique character. Unlike some other wood options, this wood will release little to no tannins which would otherwise stain Aquarium water.
We hope this exceptional new driftwood will be on your list of hardscape materials the next time you start a new setup! We look forward to seeing new layouts and designs using our new “Forest Black Wood”! As always, have fun, be creative, and try something new!
