    Would the above C2C design work. What is the minimum overflow depth for a C2C overflow?

    Looks good Awvince.

    Either put something over the pipe to prevent snails blocking it or have two pipes flowing out. Trust me on this one.

    The depth would depend on the flow rate (of your return pump) and how wide the C2C is.

    Gali, what would be the recommended width of the C2C.

    Just a thought to everybody having the C2C, would it not be better to have like 4 holes the overflow drains into instead of the just one hole in the corner? That would be some serious surface skimming.
    Just a thought, use dont use it!:)

    Mashrie, I think the surface skimming would be the same but I might be wrong.

    Awvince, width as in back to front? If so then if you have a look at my nano thread, you'll see that I went as narrow as possible to fit the 90 degree elbows in and a little leeway. If you mean width as in left to right, then I'd go for 100% the width of the tank.
