    Default What size bulkheads for 1.5 & 1.75 in holes?

    I finally got my 65G mega flow tank for the sea horses ( a million thanks to Dakar!!!!) . I need to go to the store and purchase the bulkheads but I don't know what size to get. The drilled holes are 1.5 inch and 1.75 inch. What size bulkheads do I buy to fit in the holes? Thanks, Angie

    Typical sizes

    Bulkhead - Hole size

    1/2" = 1 1/8"
    1" = 1 3/4"
    1.5" = 2 3/8"
    2" = 3"

    I went to the following places today in search of bulkheads
    Tomah, WI Tractor supply, Ace hardware, All American Do It center
    No luck there so I went to LaCrosse
    Home depot, ace, farm and fleet, and Menards.
    No luck there either.

    I guess I'm going to have to order them online. Grrrrr Here I sit looking at my empty tank BUT at least I have an empty tank Thanks Dave!

    Farm and Fleet is the only place on your list that you even had a shot with finding them.

    You should have said something earlier.... who do you suppose around here would possibly have a stash of them?? :smt021

    LOL, I should have asked you earlier. I thought home depot or a hardware store would carry them so I never thought of it. It was kinda funny when I asked the sales associates if they carried bulkheads. Not a one of them knew what a bulkhead was except for farm and fleet. The rest were like, "you want a bulk what???" I ended up ordering them online. I ordered (1) 1 in. Double threaded and (1) 3/4 in. double threaded. They should be here in a couple of days. The price wasn't bad either. 2.99 each.

    My husband is finally on his way home after 13 days. He's only home till Thursday, but that's enough time to build a stand for the 65G pony tank.
    I can smell the saw dust already.
