Overflow help

Having a new tank built (see other thread). I originally had just an exterior overflow with 1" drains and 3/4" returns. Im not liking the design, so I want something else while I can do it. Suggestions? Coast to coast? Glass-holes? standard dual corner?

Drilled is the way to go if you can make it happen. What size tank is it and what shape?

dual overflows would work really nicely with that size tank. You could get away with a single center as well.

While I have no experience with it, I've read a lot about it over and over a few times and am contemplating this for my next DIY project. http://www.beananimal.com/projects/s...ow-system.aspx
