    I have lots more to choose from, but just grabbed these. Honest opinions? I know I have a lot of work to do on my tank and on this wood, but I'm looking far ahead. I put a shoe there to show relative size.

    it could be a nice center piece after you sand it and clean it up

    I'm thinking about pressure washing it to strip off the bark and lichen, then soaking it in a bucket of water for a few weeks, changing the water every few days. I have to measure it up and make sure I can squeeze it through the openings on the top of my acrylic aquarium. I think some plants would dress it up a bit. Still waiting for the tank's initial cycle, so I'm not in a hurry.

    Thanks for the input.

    :;hfI think it would look great after some work. I have also heard a couple people on this Forum say that they have used apple wood with great success.:;sharky

    I've really started to get bit by the "real wood in the tank" bug. Also, real plants. I think my new tank is going to need a makeover :;hug2
