Trying to upgrade my filter on my 30 gallon long tank. I have a brand new Aqueon Quietflow 55/75. When I put it on the back of my tank I noticed the intake tube is too long and I can't fit it in. The tube on it has a kind of telescopic adjustment that let's you raise or lower it. I have it all the way up but it's still too long.
Do you think I can cut the plastic with a saw and somehow glue it back on? I really want to get this thing started up as my old filter is starting to go out on me.
If you can find a 90 degree (or even a 45 degree) PVC elbow that matches the outer diameter of the filter intake then you can use it as a connector. As long as the fit is snug, you won't need silicone.
