Bulkheads and overflows...Oh my


Recommended Posts

I need some input on bulkhead placement for a closed loop on a 150 acrylic tank. The suction will be 2", the dischange will be 1".

It will be thru the back.

I've just dropped a chunk of change on this tank and I don't want to screw it up.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Here's how I did mine.






It is probably not the perfect design, but I consulted with a few fish stores before I drilled. Get as much advise as you can and drill away.:eek:


As you can see from my signature line, I no longer use the Dolphin 8800 ( way to much flow, think washing machine ) and I didn't split my returns, but I have plenty of flow with the Barracuda and 6 returns.
