new tank
I'm getting ready to move in to my new house. I have a 40 gallon saltwater tank now. My wife works at a glass shop and the owner offered to build me a new tank for free. Well not free, I have to build him a cabinet for his. He will make it out of 1/2" glass. I want it 48x24x24. My question is should he drill the overflow holes in the bottom or the back of the tank????????

depending on what kind of overflow you go with will decide where the holes should be. if the overflows like a reg. reef ready tank then it will be the bottom, if its a box or coast to coast it will be the back wall.

not sure what type of overflow to use. i have one of the CPR that hang on the back of my tank now. I want to get away from this system. If anyone has any idea or pictures of how I should do this let me know. Thanks

i personally used and i am very happy with it. there are DIY overflows which could work too. i agree that the hang on overflows arnt the best.
