Bulkhead placement

Hi,
I am drilling holes in the top back of tank and was wondering if there is a better place to put them. I was going to run return to middle pointing up so it will give top water movement then place my 2 Korlias on the sides. Does that sound good? I was thinking of placing other one directly up back of tank vertical with the skimmer in sump. I know I should put them pretty close to top but is there a certain amount of inches it needs to be to be more sufficient? Thanks.

Lindsay

Id stay fairly close to the top because the further down you drill, the more water that will drain off after your return pump shuts off (power outage, failure, etc)

Yeah that's what I'd planned. I'm doing it today and I'm so nervous!

Just make sure you have the right hole saws and use a guide!!
