Hello from the Middle East.
First time posting on here. Been reading for a while.
I'm setting up my second FW tank.. First wasnt really planted.. More fish.
New tank is a rimless with a volume of about 33G.. 90cm long.
I'm planning on drilling the bottom so I can keep it very clean looking with inline DIY CO2 reactor and heater.
Since I am located in Bahrain in the Middle East equipment choices at the LFS is very limited. Apart from chinese replicas the only quality canister filters available are Eheim.
Professional II 2026 and 2028
Professional IIIe 2076 and 2078
I guess probably best for me would be the 2026.
What I am wondering is what would be the best size bulkheads to go with.
1/2 or 3/4"
Any input on best filter to use from the above selection and bulkhead sizing would be really appreciated.
I plan on using to lengths of 1/2" locline split with a wye. I saw a similar setup on here but with a larger tank. Think he was using 3/4"
Anyways.. here are some really bad quality pics of the tank and stand.
Stand is DIY made from plywood laminated with wenge look formica.
I'm quite proud of it since it is my first attempt at making anything from wood. The tank is made by a friend of mine. It has 10mm thick glass.
