I have a piece of slate that I drilled full of holes, angled in the corner effectively making a triangular box. My intake and heater are behind this, and with the plants in front it blends in nicely. Acts as a great pre-filter to keep the plants out of the intake. I built it to keep my plec off of the heater, as he suffered a rather severe heater burn a couple of years ago, and I thought I was going to lose him.
