Over flow kit

I was wondering what are some good over flow kits and where to buy them. I have a 55 gallon tank. Thanks in advanced for the help!

Drilled is best as they won't lose siphon. The CPR overflows allow for an aqualifter to be hooked up to prevent this.

It's cake... once you get past the nerves. www.glass-holes.com has a nice kit... I've got their 700gph kit on my 40b and I'm pretty happy. Ultimately, I'd like to buy a full length overflow box like the reefready tanks have, but for $79 and about 15 minutes, glass-holes can't be beat IMO

Drilling your tank is the way to go. If you're nervous, most mom and pop LFS stores will drill your tank for you for a small price.
