siphon break hole?

I have a 3/4" outlet going into my tank and was wondering what size I should make my siphon break hole. Would an 1/8" hole be too big? Should I go closer to 7/64"?

Thank you

You really only need 2 holes small enough to where a toothpic can fit through them and make sure they are on opposing sides. You can do a little bigger, but i wouldn't go bigger then that.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
