These pieces of wood have been in my family for at least fifteen years. I've done a little looking but I can't figure out what kind of wood this is, or if it is safe. I'm leaning towards softwood, but I really hope it is usable. Could anyone help me out? Thanks a lot.

looks like grapewood or grapevine to me, its mainly used for reptiles and such I do believe its a soft wood.

I use some softwoods in my tanks without any problems, heck my pleco's love it.

I personally dont like grapevine wood. Bought some at petsmart and it rotted within 2 weeks in my tank. smelled so much like rotted eggs and sulfur that I had to throw it out. Read up about it on google and they said LFS falsely advertise them as driftwood. stick with malaysian and mopani
