Are there any trustworthy resources for quality, but inexpensive driftwood?

Or should I stick to DIY methods to keep it cheap?

I bought bog wood at the local fish store. I only needed small pieces to tie plants to, so it was not very expensive.

Unless you have access to true hard driftwood, I do not* suggest DIYing this. Unless its the correct kind, other woods will rot in your tank, or carry gross plant life and creatures.

Many pet stores have woods that can go in for not much. However, the ones in the reptile section are often NOT safe for fully submerged aquatic needs.

You can also look for the skinny, branch/twig like varieties some places sell for cheap, and since theyre so light, the shipping is low. has them, but I dont know of others off the top of my head.

Look on AqyaBid & Ebay - I've had good luck with those.

Also, I prefer Mopani Wood because it looks GREAT, IMO, with it's natural two-tone, it sinks right away and it doesn't start rotting after a time. :)
