It's too confusing. Maybe if I had a table saw so I could easily cut up the pipes instead of a hand saw, I would've tried again.

I had an old hack saw from way back when. And drew several marks around the tube to keep me on track and close enough. Ha. Sweety pie is a saint for letting me do it all in the living room.

Store boughts are defiantly cleaner and look better

Wrasse would be nice but I think, at least from what I remember that you have in the tank that you might be nearing the full mark. :-(
