I guess , you decide to locate the overflow box on side in stand back , like 99% of manuf. because you like to expose 3 full sides, but just to remind something you may know or NOT , by having the overflow box on side is 10 X more efficient then back , remove the Detritus a way faster, i mod. my 300 Gal. overflow , i make one in side , make a huge dif. in special for me i run B.B. most of the water flow go on long way NOT front to back, i am glad you have that, in mine opinion Detritus is # 1 proablem.

Next tank try to make it 28" H in stand 30" H make easy to clean the bottom.:biggrin:

peninsula-style overflow tanks for the win!

Beauty of a setup, first hand look. And an acrylic doubter is now doubting his choice to go glass because of this. clear isn't even a proper word to describe. Much success wished upon you and this tank, Charlie!
