Driftwood Goldvine – Medium
General: Driftwood makes a great natural decoration for the aquarium. Wood might darken over time in the aquarium. Plants can be attached to the driftwood to create a natural look.
Ecological information: Gold Vine Driftwood contains tannins that can darken and discolor the water.
These tannins will not harm your aquarium inhabitants but will soften the water and lower the pH slightly over time.
Stained water is great for many South American and Asian fish species as they will feel more secure and the water chemistry will be closer to their natural habitat.
Tannins are also used to induce spawning behaviour in many of these fish.
