Hello from Michigan

hello everyone, my family has a 55 gallon community african cichlid tank overstocked, we got a great deal on a 40 gallon fleamarket find to rehouse some of the africans. Great right! i'm trying to find a way to seal up a overflow or something thats on the top right of the tank. As much as i'd love the canister or more exspensive filters i already have an HOB 55 for the tank. Could there be a way of sealing this hole or am i stuck

I`m going to move this to the General Hardware and equipment discussion forum so you`ll get more answers. This forum is basically for saying hello and not everyone comes here so I`ll move it. Welcome to AA

the choice is yours i made a fresh water tank then took to many trips to the lfs and after looking at the sw fish so much i have to have one.

as for the hole if your black elbow is still on like in the picture then you can buy or make a rubber clamp on plug then fill it up
