Over flow box question...easy, I promise..;)

Hi guys,
As I mentioned in a thread below, I was thinking about getting a wet/dry filter...my problem is that my tank is made of plexi(w/black back) and has some plexi on the top...I have a small rectangular opening for a filter/s...It's about...1' or so by 3"? As far as I can tell, almost all wet/drys need an overflow...that being said...does anyone have this type of tank and if so, how were you able to get an overflow box in there? It seems that all the ones I've seen have been too big to fit in the slit on the top of the tank...

Got a pic of the top of the tank with the opening your talking about?
The overlow is 2 seperate boxes, so depending on the size of the opening, you may or may not be able to take the 2 boxes apart, put the back side box on the tank and then put the front box in the tank and attach it back to the back part.
