Questions on a heating manifold for a FX5?


I have a odd sort of tank, that only has one bulkhead in the bottom, and no room to add another one. With the tank being so weird, I would like to keep all the equipment out of the tank. This includes the heater. I know I have seen where members on here have built manifolds for their FX5's, and I would like to do this. The only issue is that I am only wanting to run heaters. I need a bigger heater than a 300watt, so please don't recommend the ETH inline heaters. I use those on my other tanks, but this one is pushing 150 gallons, and it just isn't big enough.

I would like to run a Jager heater in a manifold, but don't know where to start. If you all could direct me in what PVC parts to buy, or even threads that explain it, that would be a huge help!

Thanks everyone!

Heyco cord grip.

Search for "jager" in DIY, there's already a bunch of threads on it.

Thank you! I had been searching all morning and didn't think to just search Jager! That is exactly what I wanted!

Thanks again!
