Has anyone ever taken Manzanita wood across the boarder? If you have was there anything you had to do? Is this possible to do or does it require cities or paperwork? There are some really good box deals in the states was just trying to figure out what hoops I would have to jump through if I decided to do it.

Please let me know.

I've done it before and am thinking about doing it again soon. I buy through an online retailer and get the wood shipped over to Blaine. PM me if you want details.

I went to Aquarium Zen last weekend in Seattle and got some manzanita/just brought it back. They didn't ask me any questions and these are really nice pieces picked by Tom Barr apparently! Although I did stay for 2-3 days. You may want to PM Steve to see if he has any left... Also, SKA from Calgary also carries some nice manzanita if you don't want to cross the border. You can reach him on FB, prices are the same essentially.

Thank you for the info Dou. If I did do it I would definitely have to claim it being that it would be a box full. Was wondering what the requirements were for bringing aquarium wood back.

I brought back a box full LOL. I had my receipt in hand with the items I bought labeled. It's for personal use so I wasn't going to say I am importing anything... Just normal shopping as if I got new clothes or something? Maybe I just got lucky.

Tom sells direct as well. He's shipped a few boxes for a few of us delivered to Blaine before. No issues declaring it and bringing it back.

Do you have any photos of the pieces or of them in use in the tank? I really like what I have so it would be cool to see how other people are using them!

Check out the Barr report forums under Trade, swaps, and sales. He posts his for sale wood there. His wood tends to be of the gnarly variety which is quite unique but not for everyone. Depends on the look you are after.

Oops, sorry for the miscommunication. I meant if users who had already bought some and are using them in their tanks, it would be nice to see what they're doing with the wood!

Have been discussing a potential group buy from either bloomandbranches or manzanita.com and having it delivered over to Blaine.

Let me know if any of you are interested in going with us.
