Arguably a lot more aesthetically pleasing than either bogwood or Mopani wood, Dark Iron Wood has a tangled root appearance that can be used as a striking centerpiece in your aquarium.
Compared to some other types of wood available, it doesn’t seem to leach anywhere near as much tannins.
It does however need a thorough soaking to ensure that it sinks. It is not as heavy and dense as Mopani wood and sometimes requires a lengthy soaking to get it to sink. Very occasionally it may even require holding in place with a rock.
