    I'm planning to use a Fluval 105 on a 35l tank. The tank isn't very tall, and so the inlet/outlet are too large, especially the inlet being too long.

    Can anyone suggest another way of using them/some other kind of inlet/outlet that I could buy on the cheap?

    I've cut and hacked my inlets and outlets so they fit better, works a treat :) I even mod'ed an outlet so I could use it as an intake :lol:
