im talkin it only has about 6 inches of slack i can get out of it.
this is the whole length of the pipe
if i put the water rez RIGHT in front of it it may just reach but would be real real tight

YA DO NOT CUT THE PIPE! lol it is pressurized.

Can you get me a clearer pic? I can then write up some instructions on the pic using paint.

how do you straighten the pipes without them dimpling inwards? im trying to do it slowly n gingerly but it keeps happening. i have made a good deal of progress though got the hampster wheel off and the styrofoam back together and in place. i rotated the condensor 120 degrees to get the start of the pipe closer to the front. gave me bout 3-4 more inches of length.

I made something similar for a small reef tank a few years back, I had to use all plastic hoses so I wouldnt contaminate the water, but here you dont have to use plastic, you can use copper tubing in the cooler tank to get a much better heat transfer, another idea is to insulate all tubing that is not under water.
