    I have seen this kind of driftwood in lobby of hotel and company.
    I have been thinking using them as aquarium. But, never find a way to get them.
    Accidentally, I see this picture in the home page from Google.
    I wonder where I can buy them?
    Thanks ahead.

    But, they look quite different. I don't think they belong to the same kind.

    It is western cedar, if you want, you can drive to the Eel river in CA and spend a few days looking.
    I doubt this was the same wood you saw in the lobby, it was more likely Redwood root.

    Redwood tends to be too large for aquarium use, but I've found a few smaller nice pieces, rarely.

    I cannot collect and sell much of that, simply because it's 6 hour drive each way and much less is available and it's much harder to obtain.
    If I lived near there, then perhaps.

    Manzy is much more suitable to the hobby however.

    That could be any number of wood types, hard to say. It's not western or swamp cedar or redwood.
