New Un-drilled 180 no filter - any suggestions?

I've had a very successful 125 reef in the past but it was drilled with a wet/dry system, skimmer and uv filter. Just got a 180 undrilled with excellent powercompact light setup. No filtration need suggestions for either a ready made or a DIY (not too complicated) filtration system for a reef.

Welcome to AA!

It's doable to drill it yourself. Check out glass-holes.com then you can just add a sump and whatever else you want.

Or you can use a Hang-On Back (HOB) Overflow system.

If you are worried about drilling the tank you can probably find a local glass show that will do it for you for around 30-40. It really would be a better option.

As to an HOB I really don't know. There are a lot of options out there, you just have to find one that will work best for you.

If you're not going to drill it you need a hob overflow box. Look at something like the Eshopps line.
