90 gal with "Dead mans walking stick"

Hi there
Here's my new tank and stand It's a 90 gal.
The stand was made by the same builder who made our kitchen cabinets, so they match.












The wood is a type of Hazel, I dried the wood for almost a year then bead blasted most of the bark off it.
I'll be watching the branches for any sign of decay.
Anubias Nana on the branches
Moss to come
I'm looking forward to this tank, I hope it works out.
Thanks

Looking great so far. You must have spent some time attaching the Anubias. What did you use to attach it?

That is some sick driftwood! Can't wait to see it fill in.
Are you going to add any other plants? Foreground?
Some C. spiralis, Barclaya longiifolia, vals, or some L meeboldii would look great towards the back...Just sayin...

Thanks for the comments and Suggestions.
The Anubias is attached to the branches with a type of super glue.
I'd like to keep the substrate inert so no plants growing directly in it.
The plan is....
Anubias Nana on the branches.
Flame moss on the branches.
A Tiger lotus in the hole where the wood emerges from the rocks.
Planters (with Florite) behind the rocks on the far left will have Aponogeton madagascariensis {lace leaf) and Aponogeton Crispus

The fish will be..
A school of Panda Corys
4 to 6 Clown loaches, hence the protected substrate and plants fish dont like to munch on or are fast growing and hardy.
A school of Densonni barbs
maybe one flagtail,,,maybe
Thats the plan for now,,,but plans change...so we'll see how it evolves.
Thanks
