View Full Version : Can returns line on AGA 180 be placed on either side?

11/09/2009, 10:25 AM
I was wondering if the return lines on the AGA tank can be placed on either side of the overflow box? I know one hole is smaller, so I suspect that is the return line. I hope this makes sense. Please let me know. Thank you.


For reference, I'd like to know if I can place the loc-line on the opposite sides in this picture.

with the holes being differant sizes i dont know if you can change it or not. mine is set up the way you have it now.. why do you want to change it?

I want to put the locline on the other side because I have sea swirls I want to put in the corners where the locline currently is.

hey - you could consider using a "herbie" overflow set up. Basically your return goes on the "outside" of the tank and you use the overflow boxes for your drains.

you can extend the return to the other side

That's what I thought, but will it interfere at all with the drain line? Will it possibly be a pain? Will I need to reattach the punch out from the overflow to the other side? Thank you ATB.

You will make a durso pipe it will be lower than the pipe across. i have a 210 and did the same thing. Also i don't know if you bought your tank already i have seen some with four 1 inch holes
