built in weir overflow?

are there any tanks that have a built in overflow for a sump system... i was thinking glass-cages but then i read some reviews on them and heard that they have horrible customer service and people have had bad bad experiences from them. so im not going to go that route.

should i just get a hang on back overflow box...

chime in people.. let me know what you recommend for a 50-60 gallon tank.




also im fairly new to this hobby.. so please dont be too harsh :P

^ agree, any reef-ready tank is going to get you what you need. They are built by several different companies. My 65 was built by Aqueon, and I've had no issues with it.
