Cholla Wood

Cholla Wood is a great natural decoration and provides the perfect place for shrimp to hide. Can be put in pleco tank for them to chew. You can also attach Anubias, Java Fern and moss for even more decoration options. I use thin filament fishing line.

Cholla was collected from Public Lands in NM by people who hold a permit to harvest Cholla. They ONLY take down, dead skeletons and pay special attention not to harm or disturb any live plant or animal in the area.

Straight sticks are $1.50 and approximately six inches in length. Shipping is $3.50 (including tracking) for up to four. If you want more, I will use a box and shipping is about $6.50. A few branched are available at $1.75 but I can only get three of those in an envelope. PayPal with payment for "goods;" no "gift" payments.

The Cholla has been rinsed with clean water. I would suggest you boil it for a 3-5 minutes and then soak in treated water before putting it in your tank. Cholla will float until completely saturated. Attach moss or plants after Cholla no longer floats.

Please PM if you are interested or with your order.

Below the sticks are examples of soon-to-be-listed decorative stumps and roots. The photos are deceiving as most are suitable for tanks from 1-10 gallons. When I list them I will give dimensions as well.

I love cholla wood, it's a pretty color and doesn't leach tannins at all. I've made a few different things, a moss tree and a moss/java fern cave that the fish love and looks great in the tanks.

More Cholla Wood

Please pay close attention to dimensions. The photos make the Cholla appear larger than it is. Some of these pieces are quite small and suitable for even one-gallon tanks.

Boil the pieces for a couple of minutes and then soak in treated water. Cholla takes a while to sink so either leave it in the treated water or let it float in your tank.

I do not make money on postage so will refund any shipping overages of $2.00 or more. I will use whatever method is cheaper and will include tracking with each order. Shipping to Canada would be prohibitive for these pieces; however, if you're interested, I'll be glad to have the USPS weigh the one/ones you want and give you a cost.

PM for alternate views of the pieces.
