You can mike. If you have your tank in front of your kitchen wall like you show me then you can do it, just a 2" hole wall so it is easy ti fix as well. If you need help let me know.
So easy to set these up, this one is rather "high tech" compared to mine. Sure dont miss dragging the python around the house. Have yet to do the auto changer on a few tanks but most are hooked up and life is good Just siphon out the fish poop once in a while.
