I wish there were I ordered a hole saw bit for the bulkheads and am waiting for them to come in. Have to build an overflow box yet and a stand, and then I can start cycling

Turns out they came in today yay. Does anyone have any thoughts or input about an overflow box? I'm much cheap to buy the ones I can find in stores, and not quite proficient enough to work with lexan.
I've been thinking about threading an elbow into the bulkhead with a piece of PVC pipe going up to the top of the tank.

Any drawbacks to that as opposed to a larger box?


And I'm unsure on what species I want to house in this setup.
I know I'm not idiot enough to get a blue ringed, but does anyone know which type may be more social?

Although many medical and scientific names tend to be Latin, for which the “i” ending is the correct plural (e.g., bronchus and bronchi), the name octopus comes from Greek roots ( okt = eight, and pous = foot), and should not be pluralized in the same way. Technically, the proper pluralization of the “-us” ending for a Greek-root word such as octopus should be the suffix “-odes”, but octopodes is generally considered a bit of a mouthful, and in both the Oxford Dictionary and among the scientific community, the most common pluralization of octopus is simply “octopuses.” Even though this could be considered equally incorrect by purists, it is certainly preferable to the Latin pluralization of a Greek root in the obviously incorrect form “octopi.”
