Pseudo Bottom drain

Recommended Posts

I DIY'ed this pseudo bottom drain type intake for my tank to make it safe for funky eyed fish. It also goes to the smaller of my canisters, to pick up more poo , so I can clean the small one more and the big heavy one less. Obviously would only work with bare bottom tanks.

I picked up the fitting from Lowe's. The threaded end fit relatively snugly into the intake hard intake tubing of my SunSun 302. I took my dremel and carved out grooves in the bottom of it to "sweep" the bottom of my tank. Then I spray painted the fitting with Krylon to match.

Not a bad idea! We put a grate over the outflow and that helped a lot too but my tank was already plumbed.
