Default Big Couch/Driftwood

Ever go to a furniture store and buy a beautiful couch (or dresser, etc.). You can't wait for your furniture to be delivered and when it arrives you go "holy crap is that thing huge". Furniture always seems to look so much smaller in the store then when you get it home.

So recently I was at a fish swap meet and bought this great looking piece of driftwood. I even had a tape measure and measured the thing before I bought it. I figured it didn't look that big. When I got home and put it in a 29 gallon tank I went "holy crap is that thing huge". In the pictures that would be the one on the right side. I have an Amazon Sword planted on the left side and when that starts to grow I'm going to remove the piece of driftwood that covers the intake.

So here are my 3 options regarding the driftwood on the right side of the tank:

A) Looks OK leave it in
B) Use that as an excuse to go out and buy a 75 gallon tank to put it in
C) Leave it in the 29 gallon and go out and buy a 75 gallon anyway

Any opinions or responses would be appreciated.

Thanks
