Well, 3 ft of pvc
, one endcap and a new drill press (I like new toys!) later, I have a perforated pipe coming out of the overflow istead of those fans..
25 holes shooting forward, about 20 down at an angle and about 10 backwards to the glass.
Holes are 3/16th, using a 3/4" set of pvc
stuff (male adaptor, pipe and cap).
All in all I think it's far better then the original things that came with the overflow (fans on loc-line) and certainly better then me attempting to make one V two V's.
The surface agitation is awesome... the whole top is rippling very nicely.
The whole tank is rolling, but the current isn't so strong that the fish are riding the current...
Tonight's adventure will be getting a new piece of pipe made so that there are less forward firing holes, but adding 1/8th holes in at angles to give a more varied current and hopefully make sure all the tank is covered (mix it up a bit!)
