    Hi, I’m order frag 45.2 600×600. I’m questions about the correct light position unless use the left and right to have full light but it’s doesn’t look nice in tank. Can you give me few ideas where to position light. Thanks

    We just ordered our Frag 105.3 system and we are using this series as sort of a “live instruction manual” for setting our tank up when it arrives as we have never owned anything except AIO tanks. After reading many other owners posts in various forums, I noticed the M2 Pump seems to be popular with this setup. I contacted customer support the other day, and the person who I spoke with said the vinyl tubing that comes with this setup is 3/4" ID. Given the Vectra has a 1" output, could you share what you guys did to put the M2 on in the video? It looks like you directly connected it to the M2 without any adapters, did you switch out the Barb on the tank connection to 1" and do a 1" vinyl tube, or did you do something else? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
