@Boredomb and Romad: Thanks! I was originally looking for a thicker piece that was also fairly high, but was looking through the wood my LFS had and thought if I tied them together it might work lol. I'm looking forward to when the plants start growing more.

The Petsmart in Canada carry the good wood, dark brown, I think they label it Malaysian Driftwood or something similar. It has always worked for me. I will never buy Mopani wood again after nearly losing fish to some fungus. A couple of other stores here carry the very dark heavy wood that is what I have most in my tanks, but the few smallish pieces of the Malaysian have blended in well.

The two petsmarts that I have found around me don't even carry driftwood other then the fake decoration pieces. Its hard for me to find anything fish wise around me without haven to to drive far to get it or ordering it.

Sorry, that post was vague lol. I meant ordering in general, not just for driftwood. I'll check out the site you listed.

The only site online I've used is Big Al's in Canada (I'm in Canada) and they have been very reliable. They have a US site.
