ISO return coupling

Hope this is the right spot

I have a 3ft divided tank (4 sections) with it's own filtration area and in need of the return nozzle coupling connector to go into the filtration wall in AIO tanks similar to the ones in the Fluval SPec V.

Anyone have any sites I could go to?

Here is the breeder unit I had made for me. And has been shipped out to me today.

36"x 18" (breeding area is 13")x 12"

and


Also, what size return pump (gph) will I need to get for each section (4 pumps needed). Each section will be 8 gals.
Would a 80gph pump be too small considering shrimps aren't fond of high flows. Or would I need to use a higher gph pump?
thank you for your time

You just want a bulkhead and nozzle to make the tanks look cleaner, is that it?

As a matter of fact, yes, I always post, or reply, in novels. I'm adding it to my signature because it seems like I say it in every post!

Not sure exactly what you're asking for, so let me know if this is what you mean:

Looks like you want some sort of bulkhead fitting with an output similar to what canister filters use?

On my tank I used 1/2" threaded bulkheads and these "loc-line" fittings. I bought them from a seller on ebay "AquariumSpecialty".




With some "loc-line" tubing:



And then some "loc-line" nozzles (they make many different types):

Late on reply, been busy lately.

Yes pretty much what I am looking for...However, if I can find where to purchase something smaller would be great

Not having too much luck locating smaller size bulkheads or something similar to what you'll find in Nuvo tanks or Fluval nano setups

What are the sizes of the holes you have in your setup? This will help narrow down what you need.

This particular tank in the photo was severely damaged during shipping from Fedex. Looked as those they threw the tank around.

I have a replacement tank being made right now. I"d requested for the return hole not to be drilled...I'll do that myself.
So, I am open for ideas or suggestions
