Hello everyone I took advantage of the dollar per gallon sale at Petco for my new rack I’m putting together. I’ve decided to do a row of 10 gallons and was about to buy bulk heads when I realized idk what size I should get!?! I was going to go with 1/2 inch but then realized that way to small. Does anyone have any experience with them and want to give some advice itll be greatly appreciated! I then was thinking maybe 1 inch then I saw a bunch of people online do 3/4. 😑 lol

I think you would be fine with either 3/4" or 1".  I went with 1" because I just copied what Cory did in his fish room videos. That way I was sure what size diamond bit I needed. Also I used 1" for my air header so I had plenty of leftover PVC for the overflows.  I feel like the larger size would also allow any debris to pass through better, preventing blockage of the overflow.
