Derived from the dried husk of the Cholla cactus, SunGrow® Natural Cholla Wood is the smart choice for all conscientious pet owners. These organic soft woods are all natural, thorn-free and treated to make sure there are zero traces of chemicals or harmful substances that may hurt your pets. SunGrow® Natural Cholla Wood is popular among shrimps, fry, fishes, pleco and hermit crabs. The Cholla Wood holes provide hiding spots for the smaller breeds after they molt or when they are feeling vulnerable. They also provides a food source for biofilm that shrimps feed on, similar to what certain leaves do. The wood will eventually break down and disintegrate but it will take at least a year for the thinnest pieces and even longer for the thicker ones. Cholla Wood naturally works great as decorative aquarium pieces. But did you know they can also be used as bird toys? Pet owners have sought out Cholla wood for reptiles, birds, chinchillas, parrots, crabs, rabbits, and hamsters to chew on. Cholla is also useful for decorating any potted plant. Just stand them in any potted plant to add a touch of genuine Southwestern character. Hobbyists have also used the rustic look of Cholla wood for carving craft. Each pack of SunGrow® Natural Cholla Wood contains 3 pieces, each 5 inches long. For transportation purposes, they are shipped to you dried. Always rinse before use, even after boiling or soaking. By the way, a "post-boil soak" in fresh water with a bag of activated carbon is a recommended step too. Although we obtain our products from sources known to be free of pollution, impurities, and pesticides, you can never be too careful, and the extra step is worthwhile, in our opinion. Simply soak them in water for 24 - 48 hours and they will start to sink to the bottom of the tank, ready for your aquatic pets to chew and play with.
