Yeah I misread it. It's rated up to 400g.

I can't find any other overflow box. Either that over flow box is a modified version of the aqueon proflex box or it was custom-made. Anyone else have any clue to what kind of overflow this is?

how many drain holes does it have and how big are they?
also how big is the siphon tube(s)? It appears to have two.

That will determine how much flow you can get out of it.

There's 1 drain hole and it's about 1"1/2 and the tubes are about 1"3/8 I might just use one tube though
