Hello, just need some feedback in regards on what should be the height of the stand pipe located in both of my weird in my 180 gallon Glasscages rimless tank. I picked up this unit used and I needed to install new plumbing. Each weir has a 1.50 inch drain pipe and 1 inch supply line. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Trying to button up this system to get it filled and cycled.

If it were me I would work towards a full siphon drain.
Unfortunately I can't fit a duorso in the weir between the 1.5 inch drain and 1 supply there is no room for a 1.5 inch duorso. I was looking in using a maggie muffler to silence the drain sound.
What about leaving one standpipe short for the full siphon and in the other overflow, you use a taller standpipe for emergency. Giving you a herbie drain over the combined overflows.

thanks for the Bat Signal @Jekyl

return looks good. Maybe remove a tooth on the weir for the returns. Someone mentioned a durso for the drains, perfect suggestion. Maggie Muffler is an alternative to the Durso

I ended making a couple silencers kinda like the ones from lifereef. Basically they are just a larger diameter pvc pipe just a bit higher than the drain pipe with a cap on it and drill a hole on the cap for venting and on the bottom of the pipe you cut slits to allow water to flow up between the stand pipe and the silencer. I cut mine bellow the weir and painted them black.
