Would be nice to hear what others have to say. If you do, can you
please pick up your version or suggest your vision? Thanks a mill!
Any opinions welcome

I like when it's trio. V3, v5, v6. I'd try to experiment with v5 by flipping the wood upside down and put it from back top corner to front bottom corner. Or may be not upside down, but for 90 degrees. To make a hillside.

6 or I'd have left it all hanging out of the tank.

unfortunately hanging-out is not an opt as glass will go on top. i'm just sick
with suicidal fish and shrimps

thanks

just tried upside down and 90..did not work. maybe I tried wrong :D
Thanks for your input

there is another fact.. I will add about 20Kgs of Seiryu mini scpe rock.
so the direction will be from left to right (downhill) and at the front will do
path, going under the bending of nearest branch..

looks like the direction for me is clear. as somewhere else voted for "trio"
and left to right

another question - is there any type of moss someone can suggest?
I may need something to tie up on branches. so it means something
more ok with higher light levels but also not as messy, easy to keep
under control, slow grower ..etc
