I thought of somethign last night while I was laying in bed. I wonder if the water would flow freely out. Like take for instance if you pour water or milk out of a milk conainter. If you put it upside down then it will flows then let some air in the container, then flow some more, then more air. Basically not a nice flowing system. I wonder if a tank would do that? Seems like the same principle.


Pics and specs coming soon...

Ill try and post some this weekend.. there is air that gets into the overflow bulkhead so the flow is constant. You may get a gurggle thats the air flow being blocked by the water. There are ways to correct and air/water issues. Non tempered glass can be drilled with special glass bits. They sell them online and most glass dealers in the area will drill tanks.. call around for prices they very a lot in my area..
Bulkheads can be bought on line and the plastic screens that go with them can also.
