This is the best of all worlds. We combined the newest reservoir from Aquacomputer that is a large 70mm in diameter and is made from a scratch resistant glass. These reservoir are serious and are the best you can get. With the borosilicate glass tube you get no color absorption from dyes or scratching. With the D5 pump you can be sure your system will have plenty of flow.
The Aqua Computer pump adapter for D5 pumps is manufactured from durable Delrin and offers flexible mounting options. The adapter can either be used as a stand-alone pump adapter or in combination with a compatible aqualis series reservoir. A mounting bracket made from stainless steel is included in delivery, an optional decoupling set can also be used (not included in delivery). For mounting a D5 series pump, an anodized aluminum clamp ring and a suitable o-ring gasket are provided.
When used without an aqualis series reservoir, G1/4 threads for fittings can be used on the top and side of the pump adapter. Unused threads can be sealed with two G1/4 sealing screws supplied with the pump adapter.
When used with an aqualis series reservoir (art. no. 34044 or 34045), pump adapter and reservoir form a virtually seamless unit. The sockets at the base of the reservoir slide into form-fitting receptables of the pump adapter and the gaskets on the sockets establish a watertight seal. When used with a reservoir, the threads on the side of the pump adapter must be used to connect the water loop. Please note that for use with aqualis series reservoirs, another version of this pump adapter with integrated fill level sensor (art. no. 41095) is also available. The adapter sold here (art. no. 41094) does not feature a fill level sensor!
Larger compression fittings require an extension / angled adapter to be used on this item.

Aquacomputer confirms that Aqualis reservoirs are not guaranteed to be the same size.10-20-2016
Reviewer: Bryant (5)
The issue: Recently discovered while mounting reservoir brackets that the two Aqualis 880ml XL reservoirs I bought from Performance-PCs were actually differing heights. It bothered me that I couldn''t get it to line up since they''d be next to each other. Couldnt figure out why, until I noticed that the one that was taller actually couldnt screw down all the way to cover the threads of the support tube. Turns out, one of the glass tubes was too tall (by approx 3mm), preventing this from happening. At first, I thought this was a manufacturing defect, so I reached out to Performance-PC''s who was responsive and with these pictures agreed that it was unusual. They contacted Aquacomputer to see what they could do, and this is the response they forwarded to me: Aquacomputer''s response: Hello Duke, sorry for the late reply. This is more or less normal. These glass tubes always slightly vary in length because of the manufacturing process. That the rod is not flush with the base or top is a common thing and done with intention to allow some tolerance. Without this tolerance several reservoirs would leak because it would become impossible to tighten them strong enough because the rod would already reach the end of threads at both sides before any serious pressure is applied to the gaskets. When I just looked at the photos at first before reading the text, I was under the impression that the shorter tube will be the problem because this is more likely since the tolerance range is much smaller into this direction while a longer glass tube is unproblematic since it does not matter for the function if the rod sticks out a bit more or less. While this explanation makes sense, it''s something I think people should know about before they invest money into something that will, by design, never be consistently the same dimension. Performance-PC seemed to be wary of this and noted to me that they''d be putting up an advisory on their website as well to make sure people are informed. TLDR: Glass is not guaranteed to be the same height, thus neither are the reservoirs. If you want something that can be paired up, don''t buy Aqualis reservoirs.
