    Ive found a bush that I like the look of the branches for aquarium use.

    Can anyone identify the type of bush so I can see if its safe.

    Its the twisty woody bush in top left of the pic

    Thanks[​IMG][​IMG]

    I have no idea what kind of tree it is & even if it was an aquarium safe wood it would need thoroughly drying out for a long time, maybe a year or more before it could be used

    Dont think so, the leaves on this are bigger, around 5x2 inch leaves. Similar branches though
