Talking New Mopani Wood

I just got a nice piece of mopani wood for my 20 long tank. I have it soaking in a bucket now, but I stuck it in the tank just to see where I would put it and how it would look. What do you think? Any placement suggestions?

The images looks nice.
I also have purchased a couple of pieces of Mopani wood from the pet store and put them in my 30 gallon aquarium, which contains 2 adult and 5 baby clown loaches, among other fish. This gnarled wood pretty looks amazing.
Very vibrant and rich, and the light and dark shades just catch and absorb the light beautifully. My tank has never looked better.
