I say moss completely covering the base of that sexysexysexy wood, and then staurogyne behind in the substrate, or riccia with glosso in front of the riccia, and spilling over the rocks. Man o man this is gonna be sweeeeet

That's the most overkill I've ever seen with a a piece of wood.

60F filled

I still need to add a few plants and wait for the rest to fill in.






The dark front left corner is actually a large rock that I am using to hold down a piece of wood. Shouldn't be as dark next time I post pictures.

Dang John.........use stainless steel brother.
I did something close, not as bad. I use a cloth shop towel anytime I need to apply any pressure.

Wood frankly looks better than I thought it might. Hopefully that trim off the based did not require too much resawing. I can gets some lichen next time I'm up getting more wood. Keep wrapping Xmas mos along the and above the water line around the tree base. It'll get dense and look great in about 2-4 months. You can then plant various aquatic plant species in this as a base/water source for the roots.

Nice look.

Regards,
Tom Barr

Realize that the wood will add a huge massive bacterial bioload and over 1/3 of the tank by volume is wood. All wood rots slowly and draws O2 out of the water to do this.

Wow, that looks amazing. You have some very unique ideas for your scapes. I actually like the sculptural element and hope you can make the adjustments to keep it thriving. It's just way too cool!

ps- what about an uplight to highlight the wood? check out pond lighting or you could put one on the floor.

There's also this lighting option that a reviewer claims that the base can be submerged into the sand/gravel... might not help with plant growth but could help to balance out the illumination.

I would like to get another kessil light and wrap it around the side and angle it up so that the front is lit as well as lighting the tree. Hydrophyte suggested on the SCAPE forum that I put some tillandsias or mini orchids on the tree. I was thinking some spanish moss but the problem is no light shining on the tree.

And a big ol' bird perched right on top of the wood! Maybe you can start a new trend Bird + planted tanks where the bird waste is the ferts.
