    what size bulkhead?

    Hello All, I am starting a new 44g diamond shape tank. What size bulkhead would you guys recommend? I have an extra 1" lying around, would this be enough? The return pump will be a mag5 about 2 feet below in a sump (might be upgrading in the future

    Thanks Tony

    1" is probably enough, but, it will depend on your upgrade.

    I'd probably recommend up that to 1.5" now while it is still cheap and easy to do so. A 1.5" will satisfy any pump you would reasonably add to a 44 gallon tank.

    You could use the 1" as a closed loop intake. ;-)
