It's not an intake. It's the outflow. There is an overflow on the other side of the tank that goes to the sump.

The problem was that the spray bar from the pump would not break the syphon and would cause the sump to overflow. The extra holes have worked for nearly a year now.

spray bar was under water correct?

I still think a check valve on that line to the tank not the overflow will cease any chances of this again.

That's not a planted tank. That's a jungle with glass around it- MFDROOKIE Circa 2011
