Return Plumbing


New Member
I have a 24g cube and I am going to drill it. I'm thinking of 1" for the drain pipe and 3/4" for the return. Does anyone think that 3/4" for the return would be to big or should I go with a 1/2" return. I will be using a Mag drive 7 or higher for the return pump. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

I would go with just a little bit larger than the piping on the mag 7. So if I remember correctly 3/4 would be fine. Just make sure the pump is not working faster than the overflow or you might need snorkeling gear! :lol:
