I don't understand the fountain basin in addition to the 2" of water? if you have a fountain basin don't need the other water. besides gravel is bad news. the frogs will swallow it at some point and get impacted.
if you want a larger water area (white's don't really need it) glue in some plexiglass as a divider and keep land/water separate. alot easier to clean too.
I assume you have a normal aquarium hood. a fine mesh screen lid is best. cut any cords about 6" from the plug. cut a hole in the screen just big enough for the cut cord from the filter/pump. feed the cord from the inside out and use wire nuts to splice the wires together. no escapes this way. enough slack for lid to be lifted up too.
as far as hiding the cord, use live ivy/pothos. fake plants are not good imo.
aquarium sealant or 100% silicone are fine for the cork bark. glue the cork bark in before adding anything to the tank. put tank on its side and wait for the glue to dry.
