You may want to post in the Nano reef forum for more answers.

As far as plumbing goes, I would never recommend a siphon style overflow to anyone. On the other hand, a 5.5gallon tank is small so you dont have a lot of room for an overflow. Again, I think the nano people would have much better advise, but I would think with some 1/2 piping you could work out a proper mini-overflow.
