    Have you replaced that muscle already?if not may i suggest that since you have limited space you rather use a slim line over flow box...works great yet uses so little space!

    Hmmm not replaced as yet, i did think of this before but its a bit costy on my student budget especially cause im setting up two tanks at the same time right now. This one, and one a lil bit bigger thats soon to come to a thread near you

    er can you be more specific as to why more costly? a few pieces of glass costs no more than 20 bucks and i'm sure most glass places would give you those offcuts for free even.....wheres the extra cost?

    oh ohk now i understand i cant drill the glass so ive got a whole diffrent concept here, in this overflow there is going to be a pump pumping water to the sump that is abpve the tank. wich flows back with gravity. after this weekend it should be in place and i can explain better, with pics

    Why not replace the back pane and have it drilled?

    hmm ok if you dont wanna go with keyaams suggestion then remember theres no need to place the pump right at the bottom of the tank,you'll just create more height for it to pump up to and also use more space just cut that muscle into say enough for the pump to fit in and then mount a piece of glass underneath it thereby creating a small box which will be mounted at the surface and the pump lies in it;) you could always have some mushrooms underneath it or even a nice sun coral

    Ok heres a question have u ever checked these tanks out like really in detail, there is a solid plastic thing going all around the glas so for removing the nack glass pane id have to remove that hole thing and i dont think i can get it back to the same as neat as it is right now. Oh and just incase u guys were wondering i actually emailed jebo to find out if the glass can be drilled and wasnt suprized with their answer. Chai


    ps got a glass scraper so gonna clean off silicone later and put in that overflow
