Check out this overflow, I did a VC and the overflow will hold about 14 gallons full

Because of the cuts in the back top of the tank for the water flow the overflow box acts as a brace, James decided to make it out of 1" to reinforce the back panel of the tank

Steve, how did you convince your wife? I really like the new fishroom, so much more room to tinker. That overflow is bigger than many people's tanks.

It all came about with the remodel of the kitchen and family room. The tank had to come down so in the planning we decided to expand the nook out (whistle) and build in the tank. The room was completly finished, except the flooring which will have to be replaced, and all the work for the tank was added, screwed and flat taped so it can be removed and finished with little work. It really did open up the family room so down the road when it time to retire from reefing it will be a nice addition to the house.

 

Basicly my wife got a new kitchen and I got a fish room! The plumbing in the kitchen will be done tomorrow, Ill post some pics

Hey Steve,

Why don't you have a talk with Jim. I'll redo his office if he gives me a tank like yours. The deal you made sounds pretty sweet!
