TroPhish,

They are at the bottom, center of the tank. Yes, those are diameters of the holes.

This would be my first time doing a wet/dry through holes drilled at the bottom of the tank. I want to run PVC pipe so that they are easily removed if I have to tear it down for some reason. I've been looking around (youtube, diyfishkeeper) to see how people are doing it. If you know of pointers, please point me that way...

I was worried you would think I was asking too many questions..lol
I just love this side of the hobby as well.
Building tanks is half the fun for me.

Do you think you could take a picture and post it? that would be worth 1000 words.
If posting is a pain you could email it to me. Just PM me.

John

Hello Trophaolic:


For an aquarium of 150 gallons or 567 liters, a pump EHEIM universal 1262 of 900 gallons / hour - 3.400 liters / hour. For my, they are the best pumps of the market.


Best regards:

I'll send pictures as soon as the tank arrives....

But I can describe, the tank is 150gal, 5'X2'X2'. The overflow box is 6"X12" located at the center, back of the tank. 3 holes inside, 1.75", 1.75" and 1.5". The 2 1.75" are outgoing, one is for fail safe. The 1.5" is return. Hope that gives yuo a "picture" of what it is...

Currently in the middle of a DIY stand...

I know the eheims are built well but here in Canada the mag pumps seem to be the most popular, I like the quiet one pumps, they use a considerable amount less electricity

Hey Trophaholic - you work for Danner or something?

Mags use alot of juice compared to other pumps.

The eheim pump are the best out there IMO. They need to come out with another model that pumps more than 900 gph. The 1262 pump on my 2262 is whisper quiet. Very impressive

Never done a Wet/Dry filter before that's why a lot of newbie questions...

Thanks.
