Please Help with tank design

Hi,

I am new to AA and also SW.

I am currently putting together a design to give to my tank builder. I know what dimensions I want the tank, i'm just having trouble deciding on how to put the internal overflow compartments in.... (tank size is 4ft, 90Gal)

Are internal overflow compartments the way to go with durso standpipes?

And if so, should the overflow boxes be square shaped in the back corners of the tank or at a 45 degree angle?

I hope I have made sense. I will post pics if need be.

Thanking u in advance

Yes, your on the right track.

corners of the tank or at a 45 degree angle?

I would go w/ the square shape in the corners.

I hope I have made sense. I will post pics if need be.
