Can the pipe be lengthened and hide the pump behind the scape ?

Its recommended not to adjust the length of the hose as its set at the best length for the pump to work?

You could get a piece of black acrylic that is made into like a box so to speak that will stick to the back pane on suckers and cover the pump that way it's the only way I can see you being able to do it as having a pump just hanging there like that would annoy me

you could always get a different skimmer ? the Deltec versions are a little less obtrusive inside the tank.

You could try black egg crate, or as @mav469 says above.
I should really sort this out!!
