Corbo Catfish Root

Beautiful wood ideally suited as a centrepiece in an aquascape.

Usually made up of one thick trunk with multiple branches / roots protruding in all directions.

Textures and hollows make this the perfect environment for fish and shrimp to hide amongst.

Usually releases low amounts of tannins and is reasonably quick to sink, however this will vary from piece to piece.

Piece pictured is the piece you will receive.

Sizes are approximate.

Please follow our recommendations to enjoy your hardscape:

  • Please rinse woods with water before use.

  • All woods are buoyant and need to be soaked around 1 month to become waterlogged to sink.

  • Woods must be temporarily weighed down to avoid buoyancy by using rocks, anchors, wood tight, etc. until the wood is waterlogged enough to completely to sink.

  • Woods may release tannins during initial setup. Tannins brings a cognac look to the water, as happens in natural rivers and water systems. You can control the amount of tannins in water by frequent water changes or using Seachem Purigen in your filter. Tannins are not harmful to aquarium living organisms.

  • If you want to avoid tannins on the initial phase you can boil the wood in water for few hours to release as many tannins as possible. You can also submerge the woods one month before using them in the aquarium.

  • Moulds and biofilms may appear during the initial stage. It looks like a white fungus on top of the woods. If it occurs, scrape and suction it out with a small tube frequently. Normally it will disappear naturally one month after initial setup. 

  • Woods may decrease the pH level in water.
