I got the large cork bark about 2 weeks ago. It was about 15 1/2 inches long, by 10 inches (not taking into account it's roundness, just from end to end). It fits perfectly at the one end of my 29 gallon aquarium and my red eared slider loves it (it gives her a good grip too, with all the grooves of the bark). Mine wasn't so rectangular, but the shape really worked for what I was using it for. The bark's unique shape, made a nice ramp on one side and left a space on the other side to go underneath, almost like a little grotto. I did have to shove some of the pieces that I cut off into some grooves, just to make sure my turtle wouldn't get stuck down the side, and I also used some slimmer pieces to keep the cork snug against the tank. I say in the title that the cork is straight from the tree because I noticed little spider webs in the grooves of the cork! It wasn't a problem at all, I just rinsed the cork off, which I highly highly recommend you do for a few hours before putting into an aquatic tank, because I rinsed it just to get the webs off and when i put it into my tank, it turned the water a deep orange-red color within an hour. Soak the entire thing in a bathtub for at least 2 hours beforehand.

The picture here doesn't do it justice, so I uploaded a couple shots. I was very pleased with this, even though the color is more grayish with light green moss. The cork is thick, deeply grooved and semi-rounded, which makes it a great cover for my aquarium heater, and offers more hiding spots for my fish. I almost ordered the cork tile, but this works better for my usage, which will be one end of my 55 gallon aquarium.Being cork, it takes a lot to hold it down, however. I attached 3" suction cups to the back with 12 lb. test fishing line. Well, the line stretched and broke, so now I'm using 25 lb. test. I'll update with another picture of my tank when I'm sure it will hold.
