plumbing question

I have a question. In my post from 7/19/2008 i show you guys pictures and explained my problem. I got couple sugesstions... It was about a loud gurgling sound from two bulkheads /<predrilled tank/which water goes to sump. Anyway i made decision i will take those bulkheads out and replace them with overflow box witch i ordered already. It is not gonna be as neat as right now but i do not care i hate that gurgling soud when i watch my tv!!!!!!!!!! Specially Bears!!!!!! My question----After i take two bulkheads out there will be two 1" holes in back wall of my tank where overflow box will be. Where i can buy some covers,end caps to cover thouse holes<probably need to be some kind of cover with nut on outside to tight it. Thank You!!!!

Leave the bulk head in, go to a plumbing supply store (maybe even HD or L) and get a bulkhead cap ( I think it's called)

Bulkhead cap or end cap. Make sure to use teflon tape on the threads to it seals.
