Tank size with overflow

What is your opinion of a 72 x 18 x 25 (supposedly 125 gallons) with 1 overflow box in the center? Will it have enough flow? Or should I go with 125 gallons with 2 corner overflows?

For that size tank I'd do 2 overflows

I have a 125 with two overflows I like it much better. I`m able to run a mag 12 and a mag 9.5 and have plenty of flow in the tank. Also moving this to General Hardware and equipment discussion.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
you might ask for low profile overflows if they have the option. like the glass holes overflows, or the califo style ones.

Ihave two corner overflows on my 125. I'd say it depends on the size of the overflow in the center. If it was 2' (1/3 of the tank length) I'd go with that.
