Default back overflows

i'm leaning towards a tank with back external overflow

any one have any pictures of them.

p.s or a side overflow box too might be pretty good

You mean siphon overflows?

If so, stay away!

Cheers,

someone on this board has a super cool coast to coast rear external overflow..I do not know who, I hope he pipes up.

I think he made his own tank out of plywood and fiberglass..I can't remember the details exactly.

I have a rear overlow on my custom Starphire 125gal. that I built myself. The back pane has a long U shape cut out along the top and a piece of black acrylic with teeth was siliconed to the back glass. I then siliconed a glass box to the back of the tank. At the bottom of the box 3 holes were drilled and I put in a durso in each hole. The tank is completly silent and you cannot see any overflow in the tank.

I'll post some pics tomorrow when my lights come back on.
Cheers,

Derek

Fudge has one too. They both built their tanks based on the same sort of design.
