    I'm having an 8' x 16" x24" tall tank built and need advice on filtration setup. It will be high tech, co2 etc.

    It will sit on a stand up against a wall and on the other side of the wall is my garage. I'd like to hide all equipment in the garage (behind the wall). I'm thinking about having the back glass drilled with 4 holes for bulkheads and running a large canister filter on each end of the back wall. Maybe an intake just above the substrate level near the bottom and an outflow a couple inches down from the top with a diy spray bar coming out and along the back wall towards the middle of tank where it would come close to meeting the other spray bar coming from the other side.

    How does that sound? Suggestions? Also, what size hole should be drilled in glass? 2"?
