I have been thinking the same thing. I think it's when salt splashes over the place.

yep salt creep is dried up salt that seems to find its way on everything. lol It's nasty and a pain. Plus it removes salt from your water.

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

IMO get rid of the HOB filters and canister. They are only good for mechanical or chemical filtration. Biological if you can add the rocks like you mentioned, but you will have to clean them out every 1-2 weeks IME PITA. Let your LR and sump do all the work. I'm not a fan of bioballs, but use it if you think it works for you.

Overflow?

OK.....so im considering drilling the tank for the overflow.....but i am confused as to what size overflow and what size holes to put in it. what is the best way to configure my new 125g tank? i am getting confused with all this new information. i have never done this before or used drilled tanks before. I could use some expertise on this subject !!! how do you determine where to put it, how far down, what size? HELP !!!!!!! Where can i get a high quality product to install ?
