Striped Wood is an exceptional and highly sought-after hardscape material due to its scarcity and unique texture. This rare wood features distinctive striped textures, creating an eye-catching visual display in your aquatic or terrestrial habitat. Its thicker base root area is complemented by flowing branches, allowing for new and innovative wood formations in ryoboku styles.

Pieces of Striped Wood can vary from small to mid-size, and even impressively bulky, making it suitable for a wide range of habitat setups. As a heavy wood, it's ideal for aquascaping and biotope aquariums, providing stability and structure to your designs.

One of the notable characteristics of Striped Wood is its lack of tannins, or barely any at all. This means you can enjoy crystal clear water from the start, as nature has already done the maturation process for you by removing the tannins. The wood's unique appearance and texture make it a prized choice for aquarists and terrarium enthusiasts alike.

  • Rinse the wood with water before use to remove any dust or debris.

  • Saprolegnia, a white fungus-like growth, may appear on the wood during the initial stage. If it occurs, scrape and suction it out with a small tube frequently. It should naturally disappear within a month after the initial setup.
  • Woods may cause a decrease in the pH level of the water. It is recommended to maintain a minimum kH of 3 to create a buffer effect and regularly monitor the pH level.
