Very attractive tank. I really like your final choice for the hardscaping.

the space between the inward bend thing needs to be 4mm so that i dont have to use suction cups. i want the length of the whole pipe to be between 6 and 7 inches. that goes for both the inflow and outflow
The length is easy, however the actual bend for an acrylic pipe to 4mm is very difficult if not impossible to achieve. I was trying to do the same thing; the pipe itself will start to warp and you'll get excess acrylic creasing where the lower bend is.

UPDATE**
Added Java Fern to each end of the tank so that it fills in a bit more. I now have hairgrass, java fern, crypt parva, micro sword, and frogbit.

It's really hard to take pictures of the other fish, they tend to swim back and forth around my tank but I tried my best!

They seem really healthy, even though they were transferred from my 10 gallon tank.

I just whipped this variation up as another concept you can try out. I drew over your second scape with the shape in mind.

Awesome design imagination!
