i painted the back and glued the tree together.  The pieces off to the right were actully coming off the back and when i trimmed then to fit in the tank they looked good off to the side.  I am planing of covering the splits with moss.  I also was able to take about and inch and a half off the bottom so now it sits flater and looks a little more real.

Thanks.  i counted the rings and it is about 60 years old.  I added the dirt and capped with pool fiter sand.  I weighted the tree with some concrete, but looks like i am going to need about 8-10 more pounds to really stop it from floating.  I am going to drill into the bottom of the long root and add some lead shoot and cap it with some more concrete.
