Here is my custom overflow box made by Kyle over at Sapphire Aquatics.


I had him make this to increase the "overflow" area as well as take up less space in the tank itself and could not be any happier!







The depth of the box is half of what the original Pro-Clear dual 1200gph overflow box is.

NICE Box. Does it also pull water in from the bottom back. It looks like that in third picture, or is that flash.

nice Overflow box. It's rare to see one so rifined in the finishing(Rounded edges, seamless linking, perfect holes) ... do you have any pics of this installed?
Curious to see how it works

Overflow just takes place of the box that normally is there in the tank. This on is just less protruding, increases surface overflow area and black.




Sorry for the cloudy water... just pulled out 300lbs of rock and did 100% water change to net fry out.
