Thank you so much, I will go look for something like that. I appreciate the picture, as I said, I am a visual learner. Do you also have some kind of valve so the water can't back up into the pump in case of a power outage? Not sure how that happens since I have turned off my pump without it doing that but... I guess it can. I just have a drip loop at the bottom but not a valve. I want to keep the pump under the cabinet rather then above both for quiet and looks.

No problem sorry I didn't do it sooner. Any aquarium store or walmart will have what you need a t connector is maybe $1, a check valve is just a little valve you cut your airline tubing and put it right in the middle in case of a power outage it prevents a siphon from starting and draining your water into the floor.
