Hi, I recently came across a 55g setup and am looking to install an internal overflow system. I was looking to see if anyone knew where I could get this done on the island? Also is there a easy place to find the bulkhead fittings? Thank you!

if it is a BX 55g then it is tempered glass, and I believe you really dont want to try drilling it.

It's GEX brand, which I'm sure isn't from the BX is it? I'm only looking to get the back panel drilled hopefully if it isn't tempered.

wouldn't risk it if you don't know. You might be best just to run an internal overflow out. They sell them on marine depot. I have seen run it. It is somewhat unsightly to myself, you could always make a rock formation or something to block your view of it. Just saying.......
