    After a few weeks lurking the forum and reading the articles, I have I think, almost all the equipment for setting up my 350L corner tank (Fluval Venezia 350).

    I have been wondering about the asthetics of the in/out pipes. Originally searching for glass pipes to replace the ugly grey pipes, I came across this pic of one of Tom Barr's tanks (I think):

    The pipes are so low, that when the tank has the substrate in and planted up, you can hardly see them.

    Should I, or shouldn't I?

    Pros and cons?

    Opinions very much appreciated.

    Thank!

    you cant move them, so depending on the type of scape you are wanting, you have to plan it around them.
