Cyandier - I've been making these pipes for a couple years and they still aren't easy to make. I've probably made 200+ sets. 5/8" OD acrylic is the absolute largest you can bend by hand without a...

Hey David, I saw you chose a 5lb tank and I figured I would just bump my nose in a bit.

I was able to fit in a 50W glass heater at an angle in the back. As long as you keep tabs on water level every 2-3 days it'll be fine. You can also get smaller heaters, but I wanted to be able to...

IME, after SAE's hit about 1-1.5 years old they get fat and lazy unless you don't feed the tank. I've had 4-5 do that. However, I've only had one not do that.

Best bet especially if you're worried about the intake tube is to do a sump. That is if you have a overflow/overflow box. But I would not 'daisy chain' them unless the pipe diameter for the intake of...
