    Hi I am planning on doing a external sump on my max 250 and I have everything planned except for the overflow. The idea was to drill the plastic cover behind the skimmer but now I'm a bit stuck at the overflow part. Any ideas or tips on DIY overflows? Last thing I want is to drill the tank and have a dry sump and flooded floor.

    I know it can be done as I have seen a lot of pictures of guys with setups like this but surprisingly they all try and hide/avoid details of their overflows.
