I would like to create an overflow box that will go to a wet dry filter or a sump/ fuge. I have been looking on info or instructions on how to create an over flow box and how it works. I have been looking into HOB skimmers but I am thinking it would be more beneficial to create a over flow to sump to put a skimmer in. I have been looking online and havent seen the exact info I am looking for. Any help/info is appreciated!
My buddy had a glass holes overflow, it rocked. Just make sure your tank isn't made of tempered glass before you go to cut the holes out for the plumbing. Otherwise bad things will happen if it's tempered glass and you try to drill it.
PS. What size tank are you putting this on, how many GPH are you looking to move, and when do you need it? I will have a used CPR CS50 Hang-on-back overflow available in the next month or two (once I upgrade tanks).
My tanks a sixty gallon and im not sure about the gph I have a fluval g3 running right now and the tank is doing good I would like to get one asap but I don't need one right away the only reason I want to go into it more quickly is I have no skimmer running.
