You have your in and out coming up through the bottom of the tank? Wow. Cool. The heater is obviously in a high flow area then.

Yea it's going to make maintaining the filter so much easier and just looks a lot more tidy coming up through the bottom, got the cabinet and tank for a amazing price as it was ex-display and is a range of the fluval being discontinued!

Is that plumbed thru the bottom headed for a sump? drain and return? Or is that the canister piping?

It is for the canister down below! One day I would like to have a sump but we are beginners and keeping it simple, just got our powerheads today!

I assume you used a bulkhead and barb fittings to attach?

That's going to be a lot of pressure on that can, be interesting to see how it works out. I hope you can cut the water flow for maintenance.. If you ever forget, or it malfunctions ... splash because it's no longer a low pressure siphon feed.. that's going to be all that water pressure above it pushing down.. and it will empty that tank in no time

It has a shut off valve for when I need to maintain the filter.

Looks like a 404 to me. Yours must be different though, I'm sure.. Good luck

Just for kicks I'll tell you that it is under pressure. The pressure of all that water volume above those pipes. It may work but it wasn't designed for it.

Anyway, enjoy
