I ended up with a used canister filter when I bought my 200G tank. The canister is a Fluval 403 and it no longer has it's stock plumbing. I want to scrap what I have and start fresh but I'm not interested in having a spray bar for my paulidarium and I will probably need a custom intake because of the dimensions and water lever of my tank(24" deep, 10"-12" water line).
What I'd like to do is get 2 straight pieces of 18"-20", 3/4", PVC
piping with a 90 degree Hose-barb Elbow fitting on top, and either a bulkhead screen or fan-tip on the bottom end. Then I'd connect my 3/4" ID Vinyl Hoses from the Canister to my new fixtures as you normally would with the stock stuff.
Is there anything wrong with doing this? Are their guidelines that I must follow?
Thanks in Advance,
