I use the CPR Overflow with Aqualifter. Works pretty darn good.

Wait a sec, Reefing Madness, your tank isn't drilled? Your tank is the inspiration for drilling my tank! :)

Oops. Nope, if you look at my album, back left side of tank, you will see the overflow. Now, if we are talking if I were to do it again, drilling is the only way to go. That's my advice, not the way I have mine set up. I don't completely trust overflows, mine has restarted on every occasion of a power loss thiugh. I don't know, drilled is just a peace of mind overflow. I really didn't have a choice in mine.

They were the only two fish in the tank so I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case Big Dogs Little Pigs.

I added a 4 inch airstone next to my heater in the sump. O2 is definitely not a problem now. And the circulation brought the temp up to 79-80.

I agree about the overflow RM. Im strongly considering starting over with a drilled acrylic tank while I still can. I cant tell between overflow noise and the sound of water pooling up in my carpet Piece of mind is the best way to say it. I've got mine set up so that the intake to my return is barley below the water line of the sump so if the overflow fails somehow ill only get a little water on the floor :)

9th picture down looks like you have an aiptasia?? (bottom left) You'll want to get conformation but if it is, it needs to go.

1st pic looks like some sort of trumpet/torch/candy cane coral?

RM, are you seeing the aiptasia? Or am I just seeing things, lol. The more I look through the pics the more I see it.

That cluster rock looks pretty cool. My question would be, won't some of the the corals start to compete with the others on the rock and if so, will they start killing them off? Or will these all coexist together in close proximity to each other? Like I said though, it looks really cool to see several differant corals all on the same rock.
