How close can pvc be to a vho lamp?


New member
My tank isn't drilled, so how close can the pipe for my closed loop be to a vho lamp. I don't know what type of vho it will be yet. I was going to use an O.R. 6500 w/ 1.5" intake pipe which would be right next to the lamp. Unless I used 2-1" intake & combined them outside the tank.
Thank you,

They can pretty much touch it w/o too much trouble. I'd say at least an inch and you really won't have any troubles.
