DIY spillway?

I am in the process of making a paludarium and was looking for plans for a 8" spillway. I know what has to be done but I am a guy who likes blueprints.

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils...

Minimum requirements means minimum happiness.

I think I'd look at using a HOB filter. A used one that's missing pieces would be great, as long as the outer housing is in good shape. Pump the water through the motor opening and let the overflow do its work. You could even add some filtration with this kind of setup.
