Nor do I with the return section, my concern is the pump burning up. Extreme heat! Is there a fail safe for that?

I would think if the pump stopped at some point there wouldnt be enough water in the tank above the ridges of the overflow box to still drain down to the sump. At least thats how I;ve worked it out. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

i bought a 125 un-drilled tank and whent to glass-holes.com and bought a drill overflow kit....its surprisingly easy to do and install... this is the option that i would suggest to you. Eliminate yourself of any possible water mishaps would be a wise investment for your expensive hobby!
