Maybe a pvc pipe cut in half (as when making caves), but with an acrylic or glass wall on the longitudinal side and placed just next to the front and sides off the tank. If its privacy you want to goce then you can place a small curtain or piece of wood to cover it, but gives you the chance to check what their doing and if anything is building up down there or casualties. Dont know if my explanation is good enough. Get what I mean?

I have PVCs with end caps on them that i use for breeding tubes in my peacock gudgeon tank. I've had 2 black corys go into them and get stuck and die, so I took the end caps off and it seemed to resolve the issue. Otherwise I think it'd work, maybe just make some hills and put the tubes through the hills so that the sand level isn't above the openings, reducing the chance of a cave in.
