Which method do you prefer over cost, sound, Easy to make?

What are your expriences, what would recommend for a friend, what should a guy stay away from on an external overfloor system.

I voted herbie as I like mine and it's very quiet. That being said I feel I'm always adjusting it slightly. If I was to do it all over again I'd run an external coast to coast overflow running a bean animal.

I have an almost coast to coast overflow with a bean animal style drain on it. The only thing I would change is to make it external. Very quiet and trouble free.

I prefer to leave the plush toys for my kids so I went with the Herbie. Works great and have not needed to adjust mine in over a month now I think. I usually do average a month for re-adjustment but I also like to open it wide up to flush and crud that might be in there.

Nothing but Durso's so far on all my tanks but I think I am going to do a bean animal on the new 300 gal.

I went with the silent herbie style too. rarely have to adjust it and I agree flushing is a good idea.

Eternal coast to coast with bean animal. Never have to adjust it and makes no sound.
