Thanks.

Ohh, Well ive been looking for acrylic sheeting for so long to cover the front of it up. But i've just givin up, Hopefully it gets covered in coraline algae in the future, Some rock will hide it too.

Aha.. thought you might say so.

Try this place, their prices are EXCELLENT and they have exactly what you need. I should know since i'm purchasing the same thing. It's black acrylic sheeting. I asked around and i've met a few people online that have bought acrylic from this place to use for corner overflows, and overflows in general.

Acrylic Sheets - Color: TAP Plastics

You can choose the thickness, color, width, length, etc.. But in your case, since your just looking for acrylic to cover that overflow, you could get really thin sheets and that's very inexpensive. It's only when you get into 1/4" thickness does it get a tad pricey.

Yeah its hard here in Aus, There is a place in Vic that people do get it from, But its a while away from my house. After the coralline algae and rocks are in the tank, you wont notice the weir too much.
So it should be ok. If it really does worry me in the future i can always put a sheet of acrylic there.

Abit of an update.

Went to the bank and payed for my skimmer and wavemaker. Should be hopefully getting them Friday.

Did the plumbing to the sump and brought my return pump.


Sump with DSB, Half is on the wrong side at the moment because i added another little section in the sump for the inlet pips to run into.


Added a little chamber so the sandbed doesnt get so turned up from the water comming from the display tank.


Water will come into behind that black bit, Flow over it over the DSB and then into the other section that will have the skimmer, return pump and heater.
