Need a good Overflow box online.

I need 2 internal corner overflows. Can anyone suggest a good On-line store from which to order them? Wetdryfilters.com sells them for about $65. Is that a good price?

Also, for a 24" high tank, how tall should the overflow be? Thanks for your help guys. I'm trying to finalize my 120 gallon. I can get the 48"x24"x24" aquarium for $292, and have holes cut for $25/hole. I just need to do the overflows myself, because the place I'm dealing with charges close to $900 for the 120 gallon with overflows installed.

I'd find a new place to deal with.

I think that is a pretty good price, but to be honest I've never priced them. This is also the only place I know of that sells them. As for how tall they should be....whomever you purchase from, should be able to give you those measurements, but I would guess it needs to be around 23".

I know your looking for internal overflows but if you want maybe a quicker/easier solution an external overflow from www.lifereef.com might do well.

I have their double overflow and like it alot.

Thanks for the tip. I read up on them, and I think I do like it. How does it look in your tank, Fishfreek? Also, how are your return lines plumbed? Internal/over the top? Do you have a pic of your setup? Thanks for your help.

The overflow box on mine is rather large because I got the double overflow box that is supposed to be able to flow 1400GPH thru it.

A local plastics shop said they'd make me one out of 3/8" black acrylic on their CNC if I bring them a sketch to work from. A local LFS owner will make me one from 1/2" black acrylic in his home workshop for $40. wetdryfilters.com has instructions on where to measure for height.
