Oh man... I was going to use a hang on overflow.. but a flood is the worst possible thing that could happen. shoot. So I have to drill a hole in the glass?? Oh goodness... :(

And yes I deff want as many caves, crevaces, and hiding spots as I can so my fish will feel more secure. I read that each fish should have it's own individual hiding space that it can call home.

the safest way IMO is to have a tank drilled to prevent flood.

its actually easier then it sounds, you let the weight of the drill do the work.. its just time consuming. if you went this route and didnt want to do it yourself your other options would be to have someone who knows what they are doing do it, or a reef-ready tank.

Hmm.. thinking. I want to do the safest way possible. Would I just drill directly into the glass with a regular drill bit? and like how big of a hole would I have to drill?

its a glass drill bit and its going to depend on what type of overflow you have / are doing.

Ok, last one I swear. This one seems to have everything. Only thing I would change is I would put a drilled in overflow. It's going for $325. Sooooo. Opinions? lol sorry for being such a pain in the rear

75 gallon saltwater tank with 40lbs live rock, Current USA T5 ballast with built in timer and night lights, Coralia pump for flow, a protein skimmer rated for 150 gallons, 36 watt UV sterilizer, in-tank refugium stocked with chetomorph and a 10 gallon wet dry.
The system is fool proof.
This is an overflow U-tube system, not pre-drilled.
