I can't tell if this piece of wood is grapewood or mopani (or something else). I don't want to use it for my viv if it's grapewood. Can any of you guys tell what it is? It's a fairly large piece, as you can see from the photo, and it weighs about 3 lbs. (That's an 18 inch ruler in the photo, by the way)

Yes that is grapewood. I'm using it in my tank now. 1.5 months later and I only have mold growing on the dry areas and algae stuff on the wet parts. No sign of even the thin areas breaking down yet, and my springtails LOVE it!
