A much sought after wood in the aquarium trade, Manzanita is a naturally forking hardwood that adds beauty and character to any aquascape. Shapes vary from gnarled and twisted, to branching pieces with multiple limbs. Fantastic features that make it ideal for a multitude of design styles in any aquarium.
Manzanita's hardness, unique qualities and shapes make it "the choice" for Aquarium Wood, fish only or planted! Our custom pieces provide a beautiful collection of varying lengths and diameters. Each piece is pressure washed to remove loose skin, debris, and excess tannins; while enhancing its natural beauty. Manzanita is extremely dense and will remain beautiful under water for many years. Safe for all aquarium fish, shrimp, and snails. It replicates a natural habitat in which your livestock will thrive.
I try to get each piece to look like something that I myself would like to have in one of my own aquariums.

Manzanita is legally harvested in the mountains of Southern California.
Manzanita is also ideal for parrot perches as it is much more resistant against their strong beaks than regular wood.
