If you changed the 90 deg fitting on the elbow to a straight fitting and change the angle on the other one it would look ok just try not to have a dip on the hose going to the elbow from the vent.

The way it is now if it is below the water line its not and anti siphion and water can seep in and fill the water lift up. sorry I mist that the first time
