Awesome! May have to try this for my shrimp picos, they loose a lot of water to evap and the sponge filter bubble splash.. have to figure out how to get it to stay on a bubble owl and curved jar though (not as easy as a 90 degree corner).
Not quite the same thing but I've been mulling over a constant water change system (drip out, drip in) for my 20g long since the wood is a tannis leaching mofo and i want to keep the ph stable.. you wouldn't happen to have made something along those lines too at some point (for a different tank maybe)?
Btw I use to have a planted outflow after seeing yours, but I just did a sponge over the outflow, was too impatient to bend wire for the 'spoon'. I'm half tempted to try making the spoon now though... unless you'd like to make some to sell ^_~
