Thanks, I was trying to figure out how I could get plenty of flow without using ugly power heads
Yeah for sure, more planning up front but less maintenance spent cleaning internal pumps later - plus you can always upgrade the pump when you need more flow.

So awesome. I love the depth of it and one day I hope to join the monster club they are so amazing the fish you can keep.
Thank you very much, this is my fourth tank build in the 30 plus years. I put everything I’ve learned into this build. I feel this will be last final dream tank but you never know lol

The pipes run across the front and the back of the tank and exit through small nozzles. This is the closed loop part of my system.
OK sorry, I understand now and after looking at the pics more carefully. Are you worried about sand, snails, etc. getting into the seabed nozzles---particularly when the associated pumps are off? Not a criticism, just curious. I don't think I've seen this plumbing setup before.
