I just did this and made a quick video. I hope someone gets some use out of it.
Very nice. Ive been wanting to try this on my 65.
Maybe I'll head over to home depot after work.
Nice video! we opted to remove the mega flows on our 220 build and add a 20'' synergy reef overflow but what you have done looks like a good upgrade from standard set up
Thank you. This was excellent.
Are all 4 drains 1" or (2) 1" and (2) 3/4"? I have a 224g with a 36s trigger. All 4 of my Bulks are 1".
2 1" and 2 3/4". Realistically, unless you have a very powerful pump, you could go with the 3/4" drains as the primaries and the 1" as the open channels. Also I totally redid the return plumbing on this so that the pipe is not visible from the tank or in the tank at all. Much better now but I added a bit more head to the pump. These Jebaos are really great! 6 feet of head and still plenty of flow!
That does look very nice. Thank you
I'll probably do (4) 1" drains and for return either 1" or 1 1/4"
I did the same thing on my 300DD but just used Maggie mufflers on the non siphon returns, even doing that with 1" returns I can not get more that 2000GPH through the drains
Did wonders for my Marineland 180 dual corner
Did you have holes in all 4 Herbies or just only the 2?
Hope to do this one day..
