That exactly and if you want you could get some live plants, that like a current, put the plants surrounding the hose.
Thanks for the advice.
I just ran the hose down the back, suction cupped it a few times and put a plant in front of it. You can't see it unless you look through the side of the tank. I also used a flexable airstone and buried it right below the surface of the gravel. Makes a nice cascade effect.
Later on, you may also want to try creating a moss wall, or landscaping your back wall in such a way that it hides the hoses and plug wires:
Thanks gunnie for those great links! One of my pet peeves. All those hoses, filters, heaters that show at the back of my tank. I think I could really enjoy a remake to dress things up a bit. Do you have any idea if "cork bark" and a local cottonwood would be similar? The bark looks the same. I suppose boiling it to remove the tannon would always be advisable. I also love the moss wall idea. What moss would you suggest? Should help with nitrate.
