Looking at All-Glass 75 gallon pre-drilled setup

Is this tank a good setup? Is there another brand that is better that I should be looking at? thanks

I have a 75 glass that I bought pre-drilled on the bottom with a built in overflow that is offset center.

I have been happy with it so far

Good tank and good system. Spring for the mega flow overflow kit; your overflow will be silent with this kit.

Did not know it was called mega flow but that is what I have. Very quiet.

The mega flow is basically a premaid Durso that works alot better out of the box.

I noticed that there is an inlet at the bottom also and was wondering if I have to worry about the sand or rock blocking this inlet? thanks

The inlet is pretty far up and if it was blocked it would not keep it from operating either. It is double walled and the inlets on bottom and middle all go up to the top anyway.

I would recomend taking a dremel tool and enlarging the top slots for better flow.
