Hello! I recently purchased a new 75 gallon aquarium for my Oscar. I've been looking for the perfect piece of driftwood to put in the tank, but I am not having much success. I've found pieces on ebay, but I'm not comfortable using them as many of them look like they been pulled out of someone's back yard. Does anyone have any ideas where I can shop and have a lot of choices? Thanks!

Outdoor wood is fine. Boil it or give it a bleach spray, accompanied by a thorough cold water rinse. Most lfs carry chunks of wood, not cheap mind you. Mopani is popular. Heavy and dense. Big Oscar in 75g is space limited, I would caution against a too large of a piece. Dont want to eliminate too much valuable swim space. And finally, welcome to the site, enjoy your stay.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Flatish pieces that don't extend up too high, also no pointy bits or sharpish edges otherwise said Oscar may end up with too many bumps and bruises. They tend to knock themselves about :-)
