Ok found the piece of driftwood I was looking for. From the side it looks like a hand with the finger's reaching up. I wanted to make sure it's not too high so the angels will have plenty of room to swim when full grown. It's lighter in color than the Malaysian pieces I have but I liked the light color of it. Tank is about finished for now just have to wait to make sure it will be cycled when I add the Koi angels. The water is cloudy from all the disturbing of everything. Also I'm sure it will leach a little still.

Awesome looking tank. Like how your plan came together. Your choice of substrate, wood, stone and fish all work together well. Enjoy!

UPDATE..
Well it has now been two and a half weeks since introducing my Koi angels to their new 55g tank. They are doing great and all of them are hearty eaters. I decided to keep to focus of the tank on the angels so I added a dozen green gold cory's to round out the stocking. I went with all the same type of cory so they will shoal together nicely, and they do. The angels are 6 to 7 months old now so once they reach adult size they should look really stunning.
