Malaysian Driftwood is a unique type of wood used in the aquarium hobby that is highly popular amongst aquascapers and even monster fish keepers due to its aesthetics. It is utilized to give a unique look for Nature Aquarium lovers. This driftwood does well as a spots to place plants, like anubias and bucephalandra.
Malaysian Driftwood may not sink immediately and may need to be weighted for about a week until it is fully saturated. The amount of tannins released by Malaysian driftwood can be heavier compared to their Mopani or Spiderwood counterparts, which is appealing in some cases. Once your driftwood has been submerged, there is a potential for a white biofilm to develop. The biofilm is not harmful and will be eaten by some fish, all shrimp, and snails. It is important to note that some types of plecos will eat the drift wood because it is soft compared to other driftwood types.
