Its a 55 gallon its 3.3ft, i have a eheim 2217, the intake in the back left hand corner and the spray bar on the top left hand side. I had to drill the holes in the bar bigger because through flow rate is so strong.

I always have two filter especially for bigger tanks. Then we Dont have this problem because there is a inlet and outlet on both sides. My 125g has a fx5, jbj canister and AC110.

I think I have decided to just go with a spray bar for my FX5. It going in 90G marineland tank, that has black painted back ground and I will use same color. Now to drill holes in PVC, for that matter get them all in same line. ha ha

I think it trial and error, and depends on where you like input/output for your tank, also what looks best to you. I have realized we can all try it as others suggest, but until we see it working is when we will know what works for sure.

Let me know what size pipe you go with and what you attach the pipe to the fluval hose with :)

I may build one aswell just to try it out. Would you shoot the water straight down or sideways to it ripples the top water?
I went with 3/4 PVC. I would have rather used 1/2, but I don't think the fluval hose would work with the 1/2

Going to build it this weekend, maybe, wife and kid just came down with stomach flu, so maybe not. :icon_conf
