Doug. Do you think a 2 inch drain and a 1.5 inch return in the center would be enough. Then I wouldn't have to drill any holes in the back panel.

you don't need a 1.5" return. a single 1" return is plenty. a 2" drain is also plenty.

Thanks doug. My tank is actually only 83 gallons so will go with 1.5 drain and 1 inch return. I hope that does the trick.
