Tall Aquarium Filter Length
I recently received a 20 gallon hexagonal tank as a gift along with a power filter. I set up the tank to get it established and one thing has been bugging me. The intake tube for the power filter only comes down about 1/4 of the tank's height. Is that enough? Should it go lower?
A gentleman at the local pet store chain suggested I go to one of the big box hardware stores and purchase some plastic piping to extend the intake down more. But that just seems ... wrong.
Since this is my first time trying to keep fish since I was a young boy, I want to make sure that I've got a set up that won't kill whatever fish I wind up getting.
Thanks for the help!
