hmmmm yeah that sounds kinda like what i invisiond minus the show sump but thats a awsome idea. i found online a place that makes acrylic tubes and shapes um the way you need them to be. so heres what i was thinking..... for the returns if i had the acrylic tube molded to cover the corners of the tank then up under the canopy and to the tank i would get ample flow and also block the look of the silicone that binds the glass togeather. pitcture like a half moon type shape (best way i can describe it).

A couple more options to think about. Make the overflow tube large enough to run the return back up though the center of it. You'd have water flowing down the outer tube and up the inner tube. You could also make a tall canopy and have the filter above the tank (no drilling). Possibly even a floor to ceiling pillar.
