    Sorry for the auto text tittle lol

    I have a 4ft thinking of plumbing it up through couple bulkheads at the bottom save running 2 inlets and 2 outlets keep it neater looking plus when my 2x fluval 306 die I'm going sump or a fx5 that would be decided later to where and what direction I'm traveling then next question is what paint can i use to paint the tank internal pipes black that's safe p.s. I'm in Australia

    Love to hear everyone's input on positives and negatives on doing so

    The inlet will be short covered with very course pre filter so I'll loose my surface skimmer and the outlet I'm unsure was thinking a vertical spray bar to get even circulation

    Please appreciate any input tia

    Anyone? Surely someone here has experience with drilling and plumbing tanks

    I got a seriously cheap brand new 90 gallon for my reptiles that someone had cracked while drilling for salt. My experience has been very positive.

    Seriously though, it works or it doesn't - have a backup plan if you are going to do it yourself!
