So after couple of weeks of thinking on how to hide the airline tubes, I've finally come to conclusion. At first, I thought using java moss was the answer, but I'm lazy and don't want to deal with that! While at the flower district here in Manhattan, I found this really long bamboo (about 15 feet and little more than 1 inch in diameter). I asked the guy to cut for me every 28 inch, and came home with 6 1/2 bamboos.

Pics below...






I had to make the holes inside for the airline tubes. Good thing I had my threaded pipe
and banged it in with hammer.




Cut the top to my taste



I'll do some test and more pics to come... Thanks. Let me know your thoughts.

I think using bamboo to hide the tubing is a great idea!

Thanks Aunt Kymmie! I hope the end result will be good! You know, sometimes you have a great idea, but when you do it and just looks terrible! It ends up becoming a bad idea, but you learn... =)
