Don't have one yet. I'm thinking I will make one. Probably a corner one. But my tank will be drilled in the back.

Will two 1" bulkheads for the the herbie method be fine? I've already ordered two 1" bulkheads and a 1 3/4" diamond hole bit.

Both drains will be 1" PVC and the return will be a single 3/4 flex pipe with hang over U tube. Sound good?

What would be a good color temp light to put over my fuge. I've been looking at led clip lights for cheap. Is a 7000k light good for chaeto algae and what not?
