Yup, that's fine, what you rigged up was what we call a blowoff tube. I would put sanitizer or vodka in the water though.
Many folks ALWAYS use those instead of airlocks as insurance against overactive fermentation.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
