I can not for the life of me find a decent bean animal overflow box in the UK.
(as the tank is upstairs, need the extra safety).

Man, could start my own business in PVC stuff here we have next to nothing i can find.
You guys have all sorts in murica, like synergy reef for example.

Might just hook up my fluval fx6 lol, but i know it'll hurt in the long run.

Ok people, need some help here; I'm kind of thinking of splashing out and ordering the 16" synergy reef overflow, i know it's overkill for the tank but i think as it's so slim it'll look the best.
and the extra surface skimming is a bonus.

Now on their website it says people have actually ran this overflow on 10g tanks, this a marketing scam or legit? lol

So we've now started, it's 140L so i'd say that still counts as a nano right? 😄
Every tank is a nano until you've no room to fit it in your house 😄

I'll update the info soon.

The larger the overflow the better IMO. It's all on your return pump for actual flow. 300gph is 300gph regardless of size of inflow.

That's good to know makes things easier but i've been hunting for over a week for an overflow box and i can't find any for sale in brexit.
They're all HOB syphon, i've got the stage of almost selling this damn brand new tank lol.

I'm no way paying £60-70 (about 80-90 dollars) shipping for an overflow box from america.

Not fun - well you could just build your own - they aren't too complex

Yeah that's always a little frustrating - just go one step at a time - it'll all come together quick

OK ORDERING BEGAN!

Dang sorry it's been such a pain! @Ratvan (you have been summoned) is a UK reefer. Maybe he knows where to snag one? 

 

If anything oversize your overflow intank and piping just to be on the safe side? 🤔 

 

I think...bulkreefsupply.com has a flow calculator but can't remember
