If you haven't purchased the tank yet I would strongly urge you to look into drilled or "reef ready" tanks. They will eliminate the need for purchasing and plumbing an external overflow. I wish that I had gone that route. (but I also had a 75 gal tank that was sort of laying around.)

Yeah my lfs has equipment for pretty cheap, even cheaper then prices i see online. For a 75 gl glass aquarium with a stand is 210$ and he has a sump that he sells with the overflow kit for 149$. So im not really pressing the whole built in over flow or predrilled stuff but just so i know what r the benefits of such, and would you be able to do it through a glass aquarium?
