Okay so I saw this and thought it was brilliant. You may have seen it before. You take a PVC pipe and cut it to obviously the shape you desire. Then you simply use an aquarium safe adhesive to glue your substrate to the pipe.

Just a typical tube piece. And I wouldn't know where to get the adhesive, although it would probably be silicon.
