Looks good!

Here's mine as of right now. I'm still in the process of rebuilding so I'll probably add some more background plants and maybe some java moss to attach to the wood.

And one other thing, I love the look of driftwood, and I know my loaches love it too because it gives them even more places to swim through and hide in. But man, my zebra loaches can pretty much disappear whenever they want. If they aren't swimming out in the open then it's near impossible to find them.

Natural look looks better but it is a bit harder to maintain(live plants).

Ah ok, thanks. I've just finished boiling mine! Soaking it now, seems waterlogged already but want to get rid of most of the tannins. Can't wait to see how it looks
