Tentative River Tank Design Layout *PIC*

Here is how I am thinking about aquascaping the river tank. I would like to use mostly rockwork to cover the bottom, leaving nice gaps and crevases for the fish to enjoy. This tank will be modestly planted, as I want it to look as natural as possible. In fast moving water you dont see too many plants in extreme current so I will use plants simply to highlite areas of the tank, or to show movement (to keep the tank animated even when you cant see fish).
The tank will be 4 feet long, 1.5 feet wide, and 2 feet tall, so this will allow for some nice large rocks to hide the powerheads and sponge filter. I will be using the same Baffle design that others have show here, with some changes to improve water flow (I will show you what I mean once I have the Physics equations worked out).
I think 2 802's should be enough to drive this tank, but I may go higher.
