Organic Cholla Wood (3x4") Logo


Two of my very favorite things: beautiful and useful! Cholla is the leftover dried skeletons of a certain type of cactus plant. These logs are added to aquariums to create natural food, shelter, and water conditioning to freshwater aquariums. These are a must-have for shrimp tanks, as they provide shelter for breeding, edible bio-films, and wonderful tannins in the water as they break down. They are also useful as a Ph buffer in quantities. As it's organic and untreated, Cholla wood will eventually break down in the aquarium. This is a completely desirable and natural process, and makes your shrimp and fish feel right at home. Depending upon the thickness, I'd say about two years is a reasonable expectation. Cholla wood is full of air pockets, and so will float for up to two days when you first add it to an aquarium. You can mitigate this (and remove much of the tannins) by boiling it for up to 5 minutes. Let it cool, and plop it in your fish tank! This listing is for 3x Irregularly cut pieces at least 4" in length. Shipped free Mondays/ Fridays via USPS First class, Thanks everyone! Cassandra at

I got my blue mystery snail. He was alive, thank goodness. He is thriving in my tank. I didn't think I would even like having a snail, but he's very interesting to watch, so active. I'm only giving 4 stars because I never got a tracking number. I didn't know it had shipped, and our USPS service is terrible here. I was checking the mail daily. I ordered March 27th, and it arrived April 1st.
