So you don't drill the small hole? I still am trying to fully understand this. So if the return pump is pumping water into the tank what stops it from overflowing water into the main tank. I would think stopping the siphon on the overflow would cause the main display to overflow because it is no longer overflowing. If you have a pump feeding the water up the tubing to the main display siphon does not matter because the pump pushes the water. I want to control flow on the return as well did you put a ball-valve in the return line? I am still not to clear on the concept here. Can someone explain it to me like I am in kindergarden so I fully understand. How does stopping the siphon prevent overflow
