Welcome to AA! Umm..with a sponge or a dryer lint trap brush or baby bottle brush? Hard to say as it's not really something to clean I guess...Why would you want to clean it? Just curious about some details about your tank...size, stock, corals or FOWLR if you don't mind me asking?

The one reason we would like too clean the over flow is because we have done several water changes and are nitrates and ammonia is high and we were just thinking that if we were too clean the over flow boxes it might help bring them down

Wow a very aggressive tank. I believe that's a reef tank, not a FOWLR (fish only with live rock) as you have inverts and corals. The trigger doesn't pick at your inverts? Seems like it would be a nice variety
