5 Cholla Wood
Each Cholla wood is around 6 inches.
Cholla wood is the skeleton of a cholla plant after it dies. The cholla wood conatin many holes and is hollow through the center which provides a natural cover for shrimp and other small aquatic animals to hide. Another big benefit of cholla wood is the fact that it grows biofilm which is a main food source for shrimp. Similarly to Indian Almond leaves and other natural products, it also releases tannins into the water, . Cholla wood is a softwood and will eventually break down in the aquarium. This can take many months and up to 2 years depending on size and thickness.
When added directly to an aquarium it will float and usually takes 24-48 hours to sink. To sink cholla wood immediately, it can be boiled for 2-5 minutes. Cool the wood before adding it directly to the aquarium.

All around this wood makes a great natural decoration with the dual purpose of shelter and a food source for shrimp.
