I called lowe's and another place no one has ever heard of a bulkhead so i may just order them online from like aquariumpros.....I am going to buy the viaAqua 480s...they put out about 200 gph...and a max head of four feet....then the clear vinyl tubing about a foot....then the connecters that go into the bulkhead....I am thinking about going to aquariumpros but i just dont want to order the wrong thing....just worried about ordering the wrong thing....anyways thanks for all your help....maybe by christmas this should be up and running.....

Yep...it's easy as that....this is the piece that will connect at the other end and screw into the back of the bulkhead.

I put new Smartpaq bulbs in my lighting fixture today...big difference. They remind me of a 20k MH bulb...nice blue tint.

Thanks...things are going well so far. The monti caps are growing really well...even on the PC lights...of course it's 80 watts on top of 3.5 gallons, so there should be plenty of light. I'm going to add a green monti this week. More zoas and a small clam are next.

Krylon fusion is good, but I used basic flat/satin black paint.

That is an AWESOME tank. A little small IMHO for 2 fish, but everything seems VERY happy and healthy, so got nothing to complain about there

Make sure to keep us updated!!

yes...go with the recommendation for the bulkhead. My 1/2" bulkhead required a 1 1/4" hole.
