My 2400 gph mag drive pump does a water fall just fine. It is a small falls.
Adjusting rock work can get more dramatic results. Useing quarry tile can
really cause some nice spills that are wide and thin ( like those umbrella
fountain heads). It didn't make my riffle areas very riffley , but the
effect was good enough. Also adjusting the rock work can change the sound
from gurgleing to splashing to just a swish. Haveing lots of stackable
rocks, tiles, and odd and end rocks to keep readjusting until the desired
effect is created. No need to glue them together. In my pond some kind of
insect larvae does that for me. I don't know what they are, but they look
like little grubs ( big head and jaw structure on a stout greenish body with
small legs on the front half.) maybe a type of cadis?. They do bite too when
crawling on your skin and find any crevices. I think they are trying to
burrow to water or something, and not really attacking.
