Default DIY waterfall

I'm converting my 10g tank into a habitat for one or two green tree frogs, and want to make my own cascade through the tank. The longer the better really. It would have to be relatively small so the frogs have enough ground space.

What kind of "machinery" would I use to get this small amount of water to run through my tank? And since it will be in my room and in a relatively small space it can't make too much mechanical noise or take up too much room.


Cheers.

Tree frogs don't do much ground time per say. They are aboreal and like to climb (Turn the 10 on it's side). You can make a waterfall using a micro jet (zoomed brand I believe). They need run with a depth of about 2 1/2" of water.
