It was posted by Hermies4Ever, that stated it was copied it from a post from Jellybean. ( :twirl: Jellybean and Hermies4Ever)
Cypress (swamp variety, taxodium species)
Evergreen of any kind (pine, cedar, redwood, etc.)
I have no idea about Java wood.
Thanks xD I knew that list was posted somewhere I just couldnt remember where. I'll just do some lookin online
You're welcome. I knew I'd seen it too. Since I was up late and bored it gave me something to do.
Mopani and Java wood
Mopani and Java wood are both good woods to use. I have Mopani for my tank but not Java wood yet. Java wood is from the coffee bean trees in South America and are very hard wood. When some of the trees die they are cut down and sold to Pet supply places. They are very desirable for Parrot perches and climbing things as the wood is so hard it can withstand damage from their strong beaks. :flower:

It's listed on here on the left hand side towards the bottom of the page and it's icon/logo is right under the Addiction Store icon/logo.
Thanks Jellybean! I knew you'd be around at some point to answer my question I tried looking into the woods myself but wasn't getting far. I think I'll get some of them, I really like how mopani looks and I found some cool java wood somewhere online that I liked.
If you get a chance, send some pics of what you got. I love the various shapes and twists of the Mopani wood. :flower:
I will I just got a new job so I'll probably grab a mopani when I get some shells for Apollo. He's getting too big for everything else!
