I am not sure if silicone would be strong enough to hold a branchy piece of wood to the glass with only the stump attached.
I have somewhat figured out the size magnets needed and hoppy is 100% correct. Each magnet would run about $40, I'd need two for each piece and I would have to be very, very careful not to break the glass or my hands. These magnets would have a few hundred pounds of force holding them together, and around 30 pound with the glass between. I don't even want magnets this strong around.
This idea is kinda shot. The only other option I could think of was to create either a DIY background with the wood coming out (which could look very cool) or making a support system of wood on the back of the tank and attach the wood to that. It could get bulky fast, but could look interesting if done right.
I will soon have a batch of wood from Badcopnofishtank, Tharsis, PC1 and hopefully Plantbrain in a few weeks so I have to decide what kind of scape I want to go with. I will have an abundance of each kind, and they are are very different, so I will have some decisions to make.
