Silly question, I hope. Have you taken a piece of the tubing to a big box supply store and tried it in the fittings they offer?

The reason I ask, is our Home Depot offers three brands of PVC fittings. Fittings for one brand only fit that brand pipe.

My other suggestion / question is cosmetic. Can you simply start at the plates using a flange cobbled from a T, and plumb up from there?

Good luck.

Haven't had luck with the elbow so i just gave up trying to do the same set up.
I just made an overflow box/filter/divider for the 10gal shrimp tank I'm setting up.
Thanks for all the responses.
