So I put something together tonight that I think is what I am trying to achieve. However...I think I didn't get a large enough diameter PVC. It works well, but too much water is still being drained through the over flow box than what I had hopes for. If dial back my return pump way back, it gets me closer. I think I was anticipating much more flow from 1" schedule 40. I didn't want to go too large because I wanted better control.
I will be painting the intakes black before I permanently set things up.
Should I do another 1" drain or pull this one and out in 1 1/2"?
And yes I know there is so nasty algae. I am going to rescape the tank here shortly, but wanted to figure out the plumbing first...
