Thanks guys. Thats Tom Barrs wood if youre wondering what kinda bang you get for your buck. Its actually 4 pieces cut and screwed together.

Very nice. Want to come redo my tanks?

Haha, im a good tank keeper, but I only have mediocre art skills and definately got the short end of the stick with my camera skills :) Thanks for your kind words.

What would you think suggesting using Anubias tied to the branches following the flow of the tank overall? In place of the moss on the branches etc?
Moss can end up looking a bit ratty, Xmas moss and fissidens are good when done well.

The other plant choices seem wise.
See if you liker the idea of anubias vs moss on the wood.
Roots will hang down and give an old aged look of a dense forest.

Do you think Bolbitus might give the tank a too dark look?
Java fern needle leaf etc might be an alternative as well for the darker corned.

Hey, thanks Tom. Ive got more Anubias going in here in the next few days. There is java, Phillipine java, Bolbitis, mini bolbitis, and Java trident all in there. They are all trimmied to the rhizome so it will take a few months of grow out time for them to show their spot. I also agree that the moss is ratty. It needs a trim already. The moss really had a huge jump start on the other slower growing plants. Im really hoping to tear it off and just leave a few pieces behind that naturally attached to the wood. Thank you for your comments, I think we agree on alot of your ideas :)
