    Hey masa
    after the disaster with my first tank bowing ive decided that I am gonna rebuild the tank in 10mm glass.
    This time I want to do it properly
    In terms of the overflow box should I stick with the corner overflow or is there a better route to go?
    Any suggestions will help me out alot
    And if anyone has plans for me so I can send the cutting list to the glass factory in durban

    All help will be much appreciated

    More info please... what size will the tank be with water level? Overflow depends on how you want to view the tank... I will go with a center skinny...

    Here is more info on overflows...

    Why not go for a skinny overflow and build the return in as well along the back glass? you wont notice it.
