We have never seen this wood in Australia before 2022!!
We were delighted to be the first store that had these wonderful and exquisite pieces of wood. These were brought to Australia as a substitute for Gold Vine but it consists of a hard wood that doesn't float (unlike Gold Vine) and it is more denser and has heaps of character.
The wood originally comes from China and each piece is profoundly unique with it's own individual intricacies and shape.
In Nano Tanks Australia we have advised our customers to consider these exquisite pieces as they are profoundly better than what is out there in the Australian Market.
The best thing that I noticed with these wood is that it doesn't leech any tannins or very little. This is excellent news for those looking to have that instant effect and don't want to boil your wood.
Another factor we have noticed with these wood is that the biofilm that forms for such woods as gold vine doesn't happen and that the look is substantially more natural.
