just another question for others going the smooth tubing route w/ Fluvals with the stock inlet/outlet. Did you use a hard 180deg bend to go into the tank or does the tubing not "kink" as I think it will? Or how did you do it? Does it connect to the Cannister nipples just fine w/o leaks? Same w/ the inlet/outlet?

Are there any good threads/sites with good Fluval mods?

Thanks in advance

Thanks, mine came with something similar, but not quite so I'm not sure if it will work(its just the top, doesnt support the bend entirely). Oh actually Fluval has ones similar to Eheim except the ones that came w/ mine are different(lol)http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS/ctl3684/cp18652/si1380730/cl0/fluvalelbowfor304404hose

I'm going to try the next size up tubing for the inlet side(as long as I can get it to fit the on the pump) as its basically syphon/gravity feed to lessen the restriction. I see that many of the Eheim's come like this from the factory w/ larger inlet hose than outlet
