Inflow/Outflow for ADA 45p
Over the holidays I picked up an ADA 45P. It's a great tank but I realized its an "odd" size. Every glass pipe set I have looked at is either too big or too small. It seems like ADA and other makers don't really offer many options for the 45P dimensions. I am trying to figure out which 13mm pipes are best for my setup:confused:

What do you all use on your ADA 45P or similar?
What do you recommend?

Help with decision needed! Thanks.

I've used the 13mm nano pipes from Green Leaf Aquariums on my 45p and found them to be perfectly sized and very durable.

Hey thanks for your input. What kind of filter are you using on those pipes? I ask because I heard they dont really have a strong flow. Do they circulate the water pretty well in your tank?

I used them with an Eheim 2232, Hydor inline heater. I found the flow to be just right. I actually throttled down the filter at times. That said, I later tried them on a 60p with a 2215 and they definitely didn't have enough flow. Thought they were just right on the 45 with the 2232 imo.

Oops, sorry about that. ..I had the Mini L, not the 45p. I wanted the 45p but they were out of stock so went with the mini l instead. I think they are pretty close in size though.

Great! I think I will go with those glass pipes then! Thanks for your input.
