    Bought a tank with a 1 3/4" drilled hole what do I do?

    I recently purchased a 40L from a pet store that went out of business but have run into problems when I decided to run a sump with a gravity overflow. What size piping will I need im new to this type of thing, but not with fish. The hole is an inch and 3/4 and i was just planning on running an elbow up and I already have five feet of 1" clear flexible hosing that fits my pump...

    A 1" bulkhead fits in about a 1 3/4" hole. Search Aquarium bulkhead on googlee and find the size bulkhead that requires a 1 3/4" hole. Buy it. Use an adapter to change to what ever sized pipe you want to run.

    once again the tortoise wins out in the long run. Egon's link is dead.

    You seem to be new to bulkheads: if it leaks, DON'T SILICONE IT, just reseat it. Also, make sure you get threaded x threaded, you'd probably regret any slip fits in a month, mas o menos.
