Aquascaping tips for this giant spiderwood
***Edited thread title rather than starting new thread***
I'm re-scaping a 45 rimless tank soon (24x18x24") and it currently has a large flat piece of Mopani wood as the only hardscape. The piece only really fits in one place -leaned against the back wall so I'm inclined to pull it out (if I can get the Buce off of it) and replace with something more branchy.
I'm finding that there aren't a lot of places that sell large aquarium wood by the piece that let you see it first. My vendors carry Zoo Med and they have a "show" sized piece of spiderwood that's in the neighborhood of the right size, though pretty pricey. Naturally no one could get a photo of it for me, and Google only seems to have stock photos. Wood varies a ton obviously, but wondering if anyone has seen the ZooMed offering and had thoughts one way or the other? Any other places you may know of that sell wood you can actually pick out? Thanks in advance.
Edit, I have a piece to work with now that can be seen below. For scale, those shop floor tiles are 12". Tank is 18"x24" footprint. About 5" will have to be trimmed off unless I can turn it diagonally. Will look for a similarly sized box tomorrow and place it inside and follow up with pictures.
