I'm starting a new reef tank soon (probably around 150-180 gal
) and have been shopping on-line as well as at my LFS
. The "reef ready" tanks by oceanic, tenecor, AGA, etc. have overflows that seem to be pretty good, but when I view the galleries of AA members, I don't see a lot of them. Is that because:
1. pre-installed overflows suck,
2. are they a relatively newer technology, made available after the distinguished members of AA established their tanks, or
3. the gallery tanks actually have them, but they're well-hidden in the aquascaping.
