i have it like that..have no problem..but it would be better to put on the oppisite side, so the current will push debris toward the overflow..the other way its going to push it away from it..

. Its a plus to have them on opposite sides of the tank. Much more effecient.

clear vinyl tubing, it is at lowes or home depot, 15ft was not enough of each? thats 7.5ft per line.................

its about $1.40/ft for the bigger stuff

you need 1" ID for the drain and 3/4" ID from the return line

having it at opposite ends of the tank would obviously be better for reasons im sure u can think of....plus having it at opposite ends would create more of a "river" effect and imitate a piranhas natural environment
