i've been looking online DIY sumps, i've seen many differnt ways to do this...

anywhere from hard to make, to easy, and from cheap to expensive....

my question is... i have a glass tank... how do i make an overflow system to a sump without having to drill??

and if i have to drill, can sombody please explain a way i can do this with out breaking my glass and ruining my tank.

(this is on a 55 g DIY tank, i'm going to make my own liverock and all...)

also check out melev's reef site. he makes a weir overflow box, although you may need a bigger one. you can always buy a decent hangon box for 60 or 70 $ .
