u also got idea hor.....sounds workable...that means the background got holes and water flowing out rite?

yes... it will look nicer w/o pipes sticking out here n there.. u can add moss to the openings then the moss will be wet.. if possible u can arrange 1 which the water will flow onto ur wood and cover up the pipe with some plants... it then water will flow along the wood.. all these are just my ideas... dunno how workable it will be...

Plant more crypts. u will simply love them. Ur water spraying down seems abit unnatural maybe u could buy those switch to place in the tubing and adjust the flowrate. Just my opinion though.
