55g Long equip. question


I have a 55 g long and was wondering which type of input output would be best to distribute the water. Spray bar? Lily pipes? Thank you for any inputs.

I think it's down to personal choice really, spray bars are good for even distribution of co2 etc as it ensures the co2 is pushed down where it's needed but then again lily pipes look much nicer I think. I've used both and found them just as good but preferred the spray bar.
Lily pipes create a much gentler flow too
