Well when it does sink, I would maybe put the stump part in the sand so the two legs kind of fork off into the tank. Or try to find one or two more pieces that look like they go with that piece to make it look like its one bigger piece of wood.

i agree with nismo- i would try to find a similar piece and tie them together at the base so it has a few 'forks' out toward the middle of the tank

I really like the horizontal layout better anyway
nice setup...it is always hard to imaging how the plants WILL be when they fill out

you should add some rocks next to the stump part and add an anubias plant and add some moss on the top branch.
