rosstoal is on a distinguished road

apologies for the assumingly trivial question, but I'm strangely having a difficult time finding out how to solve this problem. It's been a long day of nonstop CFDing and this one little problem is just making my brain go

I'm trying to model a suction pipe for a tank of water. The pipe is vertical with a 90 degree bend to horizontal to where it exits the tank (as illustrated in the first picture). I haven't come across this scenario before, because any similar scenario tends to be a "T-junction" (where the pipe meets the wall, but not protrudes in. As shown in the second image).

How do I make it so the pipe wall is a separate entity to the tanks internal fluid domain but allow flow through the pipe?

Thanks in advance!

* The first picture isn't a tutorial unfortunately and anything similar online is for 2D models"
