WTB: External overflow

Looking for a external overflow as my tank is tempered and i cannot drill. (40 gallon breeder)

Preferably 2 pipes. If you are someone or know someone who can make one/makes them pm me and we can talk

Yes, if you can drill the sides, the newer ghost-style overflows (such as the Synergy Reef Shadow) are much better than the older style with U-tubes that can lose a siphon and cause a huge mess.

I know a drilled tank with a ghost overflow but as I stated before it's tempered glass on all sides

CPR overflows are nice. Worked well for me. Can be a little loud, but tuning the air intake is key. Even using a tiny air pump helps.

Our comments were implying that you should check to see if the sides are tempered, because on many 40 gallon tanks only the bottoms are tempered. Sounds like you've done this, but it was not stated in your original post.

I have an Eshopps PF800. Might be too big for a 40b but if you're interested let me know. I opened the package and looked at all the parts but I never used it. I got it from Dr Fosters for $68
