Ok you DIY-ers and other people competent with sharp objects.
My 72 gallon bow has a predrilled over flow compartment. I hate it. Always have. It gets in the way of decorating and limits me to very dark back grounds.
I have been wanting to switch to pale sand with a blue background to bring out the colors in my new discus. The color clash with the overflow is a problem for me.
While doing the substrate change from black sand to white sand, I was hoping to remove the overflow box in the process.
I already have sealed off my tank with pvc fittings, and these I can hid in sand/rock/driftwood formations.
Any recommendations as to removing the overflow with minimal to no scratching? Tank is a glass Aqueon 72 gallon bow. The overflow compartment does not touch any side seams, just the bottom.
Also, I am a lady with minimal power tools. We are talking razer scraping here. Any methods for speeding up the process to reduce time fish have to vacation in a storage container would be greatly appreciated.
