Hi!

Thank you for your help, really appreciate it in advance!

I want to convert my tank into a high-flow tank.
I have a 125 gallon tank that is 6 feet long.
I have a Mag Drive 9.5 water pump.
I want to be able to use the mag drive pump that I already have to make the water flow
from the right side of the tank, to the left.
I want to be able to place the mag drive pump outside/external to the tank
But
I don't know anything about plumbing
I tried Googling and going to local hardware stores
But
I still cannot figure out how to do it.

Could you please help?

Thank you

Looks like you’ll need threaded barbs or threaded adaptors, depending on what connection type you’d like, if the unit didn’t come with them. I would use a threaded barb fitting and connect vinyl tubing to both the intake and output. Run the intake to the left side of the tank and choose what style of intake strainer you’d like to use. Then run the outflow tube to the right side and choose the style of output you’d like ie; spray bar, single output, multi output (like fluval fx4/6) and then plug it in. If using barbs and tubing then also use a screw down clamp to secure the tubing.
