Coral : undecided , but have my eye on some really nice acan frags at the LFS

 

 

doing things a bit different this time. I couldnt find a bulkhead small enough for what I had in mind so I decided to go with this :

 

th_guestbulkhead.jpg

 

It is 1/2"x1/2" john guest bulkhead union. I will be using 1/2" john guest tubing along with an inline ball valve to adjust flow as needed. The bulkhead did not come with a gasket so I did what most reefers hate and used silicone to secure it to the galss and ensure a water tight fit.

 

Here are a few quick pics :
