I just think you should look into adding live plants. They make a lot of difference

How do you hold the drift wood down under the water? After boiling and letting the wood sit in water for 2 weeks, the thing still floats!

You can either put a heavy rock on it or screw it to a piece of slate with a stainless steel screw.
