Invest in some real wood, it won't look quite as cool and twisty, but it'll be worth it in the end.
This is very true, thanks Ogre for catching this, I had missed it earlier.

This wood is notorious for toxic fungus. Mikaila had a terrible issue and I believe fish losses, and I had what I thought was Mopani but in hindsight may have been grapewood, and nearly lost fish. I would never risk this wood.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
