Installing a cannister filter to a tank with a lid

Did anyone have issues linking up a cannister filter (like the tetratec ex700) to a tank.

When it comes to having a tank lid, how did you get around this? Did you just measure and cut a hole in the part of the lid that the tube was to come out of?

Thanks all

Bit thick, just seen that my tank has two divots on the back in the size for such a thing.

I will leave this topic up as a monument to my general cack for brains.

Don't worry about it - happens to all of us on occasion!

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
