Question

Which Lily pipe- Poppy glass or Violet glass !!


Just wondering which one of these would be better for a 60-P.
Which one of these would make lesser dead spots ?
FYI-
Poppy Glass is the one with rounded head outflow-


And the Violet Glass is like the normal lily pipes we see around-

The Vilolet glass would make less of dead spots.

The poppy will reduce the flow coming out. So intale you would have a more dead spots then the vilolet, i'm assuming since flow coming out would be reduce by the shape of the poppy bell at the end.

Okay.. So I inquired a lot on this, and finally I've ordered Violet output and input.
I dont want to make any dead spots in my tank and since it would be a densely planted one, water circulation must be good.
If i'd have going with nature or iwagumi, poppy would be a good choice. Or If I would've going with 2217 then also Poppy could have been a good option. But with 2215 and that too in a dense planted tank, I chose violet

of the available options, the poppy style will give you the least flow.
