    Hi.

    I want to have my tank drilled - I am having endless problems with the syphon idea that the builder of the tank made.

    So what I would like to know is - where is the best and safest spot to drill a tank?

    I am planing a c2c idea - something like this -



    Tunnels on each side should give you that flowing effect they will be 650 x 50 and the front piece 650 x 30.

    the center pice will be 180 x 180 and front pieces 180 x 160


    Yay or Nay ?

    for a better overflow, look at manics thread, we made a simple skinny overflow
