I prefer the right fit for mist king bulk heads. If I got some of your airfoils I’d rather use an optimized diameter for it than adapting to my usual drilled hole size.

Perhaps it is obvious to others, but I'm not sure what you are asking.

Are you trying to decide what size drainage holes to drill? That is what the dimensions listed in the poll implies.

Are you trying to decide what size fans to use? If so, we need to know a lot more about your viv dimensions.

Ah... I had not seen your other thread. Without that other thread, this one is very hard to comprehend.

For anyone else who is confused, read this:

I think this is good advice:

People who decide to add one of your fans would have to drill another hole anyway (it isn't as if someone would pull a mister nozzle to add a fan, at least this would be a rare case), and the cost of another size of glass bit is negligible. People who are willing to drill their viv will probably be willing to drill whatever size is necessary.

Perhaps offering something like a Mistking screen wedge in the appropriate size would be useful to people who aren't interested in drilling.

Good point however if they have the size hole saw they may aswell use it I have from 5-60mm in 5 mm increments yet my mate has only got 20mm I just wanted to get a baseline of what people would prefer not everyone would be happy drilling a 55mm hole in the top of there tank lol I won't be drawing it for a while now my pc decided to break so got to get that sorted before I can jump on fusion360 and draw it out
