Default DIY Sanke False Bottom

Looking good some help with my DIY sanke top false bottom. Here it's a quick photo to review. Do you I need more holes? What type of connector set up do you recommend for my siphon tube? Thank you in advance.



(not quite the perfect circle cut but I happen to find thus lid in a back corner of my garage and figured I would give it a shoot to make my own.

Cheers

I was planning on use a rubber bung with 1/2" copper pipe as my siphon tube. Not overly pretty but should be functional.
