    I made this on Monday, it took me a few hours, but I think I did a good job. I took two small pieces of driftwood I would never be able to find a use for, and glued them to a river rock with aquarium sealant. I put an air hose in between the pieces of wood. I melted and clamped the end shut and poked holes all in the tube before the clampped end. Then, I took an old plastic plant and glued the branches to places on the wood and rock.

    I keep getting comments from people who come by and see that it looks just like something you would buy at the store! :)

    I'm thinking some of the holes got filled in with sealant, because the hose isn't making the same 'air-stone' like effect it was before I put it onto the stone. It still works though, it just doesn't spray like it did before. :(

    PICS!!

    This is right after I put it into my refurbished tank, it was having some trouble at first, releasing a series of bubbles in bursts rather than a constant stream like it is doing now. It still looks good though.
