The PVC is 1" diameter and the container is a cereal container from Walmart. The 0.25" acrylic is from Lowes. I used Marineland aquarium safe silicone for the threaded joint through the container. I'm working on the calculations for the volumetric flowrates and I will post those later. Good luck.
impressive scotty,very, have a question, so instead of having the tank/tupperware underneath the main tank and pump pumping the water up into the tank you have a box hanging over the back in the true overflow box sense, so the water is going from there to the tank and back? sorry if im confusing you haha just trying to compare it to the uarujoey clip
