What kind of trouble?

Here is a really bad drawing of what I'm getting at. It's done with my right hand and I'm a south-paw...
The top is looking directly at the tank. In a perfect world, I'll find a piece of driftwood that looks exactly like that (ha!) There is two levels. The center of it is about an inch or so deep. The retaining wall or whatever you want to call it will go from the front, angled back to about 3/4 of the depth of the tank, across and angled back to the front on the opposite side. The second part of the picture shows a "top down" look. The blue rectangle in there is a sheet of plexi that will have the "wall" glued on with silicon. Said wall will be made of:
Gah, the picture is tiny. It's plastic rock wall edging found in garden stores. It's 4 inches tall."It is better to die on one's feet than to live on one's knees."- Albert Camus
