Problem with Lily Pipe placement from the back of tank.


19 Oct 2008
Can someone solve my lily pipe conundrum!?

I am building an 80 x 40cm base tank.

Due to reasons I won’t bore people with, I have to have my glasswork going in from the back, not the ends.

I can do either of the 2 options in my plan view illustration.

I fear that neither options are ideal.

Left hand option (together): risks a water cycle straight across the tank, down and back, leaving the right hand end with no flow.

Right hand option (apart): risks a lack of flow in the centre of the tank.

These are the only two options really because of other limitations - can someone help identify what I suspect is the least bad option?!!
