And, it does look simply mauvhelous, dahling!! (to be said in your best Zsa-zsa Gabor accent...now that should bring back some memories ).

Thinking about my original reactor from back when, I simply attached the gravel vac opening to the output of the powerhead with the water flowing straight down. Now, I'm thinking a real key is to have the powerhead output come out at a 90 degree angle from the tube so as to get that swirling action. Hmmm. Might be worth a trip to HD to find one of those colored Viewtaners. Oh, I do so hope that they have on that matches the trim of my tank !
