Fusiongt - first of all I love your tank. I'm just about to start my first true planted tank.
I'm getting the bits and pieces together.
It's my only tank that I've had for years and has been ultra stable as a fish tank but the plants I added did the usual 2 months or so then died as there was no thought to providing what they needed.
Tank is Juwel Vision bow fronted 260lts with internal filter.
I want to add an external filter for more filtration and flow.
I like the look of your Metal jet pipe and Lily pipe.
Could you do me a massive favour and advise the internal and external diameter of these pipes.
I will be adding an Eheim Ecco Pro 300. It says hose size is 12mm diameter. I don't know if that is outside or inside diameter.
I can get hold of high spec stainless tube in 1/2" outside diameter. (I expect I would need to get the thin walled stuff though). If the sizes are about right I can bend it myself, drill or slot cut the inlet and make some sort of diffuser for the outlet. Also means I can use compression fittings and full bore ball valves for ease of use and maintenance.
