New Wood..to big ??

I'm getting things ready to do a make over on a over grown 75 gallon. I purchased a piece of wood on eBay, it arrived yesterday. My question to members, do you think it's to big. It stands up eather way, an its nice layin down. I think its to big, really nice, just Big.....

I'm open to your suggestion.....Thanks..

First 2 pixs are of the tank that coming apart.

Your tank looks fantastic. Not overgrown in my opinion, it looks natural.

That chunk of wood should make a great centerpiece. I say go for it.

is it just not absorbing water? Still floating?
Maybe drilling holes in it will help it sink...
