The piece you see in the image is precisely the piece that you will receive, ensuring a seamless transition from anticipation to realisation. Although measurements are provided as approximations.

A preliminary rinse with water before use ensures a pristine canvas for your creative endeavours. Please note that buoyancy is intrinsic to these woods, necessitating a soaking period of approximately one month to achieve the coveted state of waterlogged stability.

During this transition, temporary weighting mechanisms like rocks, anchors, wood ties, or other such tools will be your allies, abating any buoyant tendencies. It’s important to acknowledge that a fascinating transformation may occur as tannins are gradually released into the water. Much like the mystique of the Amazon’s flowing rivers, these tannins introduce a warm cognac hue that adds a naturalistic charm to your aquatic world.

Managing tannin levels is a simple feat, either through periodic water changes or the inclusion of Purigen. Fret not, for these tannins pose no harm to the aquatic inhabitants of your tank. Should you wish to expedite this process, a gentle boiling of the wood or a month-long submersion are effective strategies.

As your aquarium evolves, the initial stage may witness the emergence of delicate white fluff. Resembling a subtle fungal growth on the wood’s surface, this phenomenon is benign and transient. Regular removal with a small tube will hasten its natural dissipation, typically within a month of initial setup.

Lastly, be aware that the introduction of Redmoor Wood Root may have a marginal impact on the pH levels of your water, imbuing an authentic natural quality to your aquatic microcosm. Welcome the symphony of nature into your aquarium with Redmoor Wood Root on Slate, an embodiment of elegance and refinement that resonates with the splendor of the underwater world.
