Basically, your 2 choices for an overflow box is having a drilled tank in which water flows through a hole in the glass to the sump/fuge, or you can have a hang on the back overflow with a siphon. (Drilled overflows are much better. If the siphon on the hang-on-back overflow box breaks, the tank overflows.)

Do you have a refugium yet? Is the glass that your tank is made of tempered? If it is then you will not be able to drill it.

refugium

I have decided to build my own refugium . 5 gallon tank fits perfect in my stand.
