    nice build
    I'm not too fond of the overflow teeth. But they will work. Just my personal choice.

    Like the overflow box though. Small and does not take a lot of space while still giving a lot of linear overflow length

    thanks @RiaanP yip from that angle it does look a bit funny but looking straight ahead when the tank is on the stand it looks cool.
