Yep. If your tank isnt drilled then you need the overflow box.

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

so from what I can see....water goes into the overflow....down into the sump...where the protein skimmer gets at the water first...then it overflows over three pieces of glass into the area where there is sand (gathering this is part of the bio filtration)...then back over two pieces of glass...then back up to the tank?

Yes, ur pump puts the water back in you tank. The second chamber holds my rubble for filtration. And yes, the sand holds the biofiltration.
