Dan, did you fix the noise from your overflow? It is using an aqualifter on it right? I had the same annoying problem. I simply put the return hose into the area right before the water drops down to head intot he sump. Under water there is no annoying air sucking noise...

Also, do the Lowes worklight route! I have one over my excuse of a refugium and it works great at growing hair algae. Just added red bone grass so we'll see how it does. I jsut had 0 luck with cheato.

Nah I haven't fixed the noise coming from the top of the overflow but I fixed the loud noise coming from the drain into my sump.. I've read to use a durso stand pipe but it seems like that's what I already have so I'm not sure :/

This is why I'm hunting for a drilled tank like nothing else! HOB is too much hassle.

It's just a tall PVC pipe that goes in the overflow box and raises the water level to be an inch or so lower in the box than the main tank. That's the basic one but there are variations.
