I think that's brilliant!!

I dunno if this is why you're describing, but attached is yet another MS Paint masterpiece that shows what i'm thinking. This could even be done as a DIY project. Easier, slightly, than drilling. You use a diamond blade and etch out the teeth at the top of the tank then silicon a DIY 3 sided acrylic box to the outside of the tank and you have an instant "built-out" overflow box! I love this idea!

BillyZ, Thats about right execept I think the back wall is drilled so basicly a moonshape is in the tank wall. Like take a circle and cut it into half.
