HOB overflow?

I have a 55 running right now with no sump or anything...I would like to have one. being that the tank is running and I would be paranoid about breaking something, I can't drill. Does anyone have any recommendations on a HOB overflow?

I can get you a HOB U tube overflow. PM me if you're interested. Also, check with the other sponsors of this site. I have found the U tube type to be the simplest, easiest, and cheapest way to go.

this is the overflow that i have and i am very happy with it. With a durso built into it it is almost silent and works very well. Although i did have to add a second u-tube to keep up with my pump. But that is my fault, Very good overflow.

I don't have to be for you to PM me. Just look at the bottom of my post and you'll see the "PM" button. Click that and send me a message. I'll get it the next time I'm online. I'm usually on 5-6 times a day anyway so I'll see it pretty quickly.

I believe this overflow is rated for 600 gph...I'd probably go with a Mag 5 or possibly a Mag 7.
