Fern Jack / Betta Cave

I have this El Niņo fern in my aquarium and it's not doing so well, so I'm hoping it will help if I can its leaves up out of the water a bit as it acclimates to being fully aquatic.

My original idea was basically this:

A member on another thread thankfully mentioned that placing a fern in a flower pot would probably not allow enough water flow around the rhizome, so the idea morphed into this:

Angle grinder with diamond blade later:

And here's what it looks like right now after 2 coats each of aquarium sealer and gravel:

More to come as I complete this build soon.
