Natrual looking tree for hiding & deccoration
I bought this aquarium tree in March 2013, almost a year later and it still looks good. Other reviewers complained about it's durability, but I found no issues with that. It does get wobbly if you don't secure the base under some rock or gravel, but once it's roots are buried your tree will stand strong. Some of my fish like to sleep under the gap in the roots at the bottom of this decorative tree, while others just like swimming around it's tall stem.
I ripped out the fake foliage and used a toothpick to get excess glue from their holes; replacing them with bits of living Java Fern and Water Wisteria for a more natural look. The growing leaves now sway in the water, and draw more attention to the colors of fish, rather than staring at plastic leaves.
A year later and the "Asian red leaf tree" is still fully enact, minus the fake foliage -which I removed.
A good buy, just remember to bury the feet of it under gravel or decorative rocks to weigh it down and prevent in tank tipping. Great for those who want a more natural looking tank

Beautiful but not sturdy
It looks very beautiful in the tank and my fish loved it, especially my ghost shrimps, but it was poorly conducted. I take out my plants and rinse them after I change out the water and after five times of doing this and putting them back in the tank the top part broke off.

Cool Look-Too Fragile
Same as other poster...I only have had this item about two months. I was doing a water change and gravel cleaning; when I went to scoot it over to get the gravel near the roots, the top broke right off. Mine broke fairly flat so it's still in there until I can get a replacement.
