Which driftwood should I go with?

I'm still planning my 30 gallon (36x12x16) tank and have been thinking about getting Manzanita driftwood. I have never used it but love the way it looks. Help me decide which one I should get. In no particular order:

1 - 25x12x12


2 - 16x12x17


3 - 28x6x9


4 - 15x10x10


5 - 21x4x10


I like them all, but have a hard time visualizing them in the tank. I was also thinking of maybe a combo of #4 and #5. Or getting number 5 and cutting off the darker long piece to the right and using that spot as the bottom to stand it up. Thoughts? Better ideas? Thanks for the help!

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)

I like #4 & #5 too. Think those are the best looking.

I like one and three, either one would look great as a centerpiece in a planted tank.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

You should add a poll, if it'll still let you.

good idea, but it won't let me add a poll.

I can't decide, I'm jealous of all of them.

If you order some, let us know about your experience with the seller. I still have a driftwood wishlist. Ah, someday!

I like #2 and/or #5 with the idea you thought of. I think any of them would look good though. Hard decision. LoL

#3 looks like two separate pieces? But it's my least favorite.

#3 is 2 pieces so that would give me options....

Let's add one more to the mix

6 - 23x12x12


Would probably cut off that leg to the right that is holding that end up...

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)

Hmm, I like #6 a lot. It's different and has nice detail
