Looks really nice! I like minimalist, simple layouts a lot!
Unless you love the look of the fork though, you may need a plan B, lol.
I have a piece of wood like that in one of my tanks. It was boiled for 2 hours, and came out of the water to begin with, and after 2 months, I still can't get it to stay down on it's own.

I like the single rock that makes your hardscape. I can't wait to see your plants fill in.
