Overflow

Am looking to set up the overflow to my sump, is the only way to get the water to the sump to drill the tank and if so is this hard? What would I need and any tips?

They have hob overflows if you do not want to drill. I have an esopps hob overflow. Works great for my 75g.

Make sure ur tank isnt temp..bc ur glass will shatter if it is. I would use a drill with a cord they are more powerfull than cordless. U will need a dimond encrusted drull bit. Look up on bulk reef supply on you tube they have a video that shoes how to do it. They also salethe stuff to drill an aquarium on there online store

There was one guy who put a laptop screen up against it and if its distorted then its tempered. If not, you will be able to see the screen clearly
