    My tank has the overflow in the center of the tank so I'd like to attach some Green Star Polyp to it in hopes that it will cover the entire box. I realized that if it works I'll have to keep trimming it to keep it from plugging up the intake slots. Anyone ever try this?

    Yeah people have done this, there are plenty of examples out there. I have GSP on the back wall of my AIO and its been doing fine.
    I had assumed that the GSP would grow radially outward in a semi-even pattern so I placed it midway up on my backwall. Instead it grew some "runners" almost like crab grass, and grew directly upwards to the water line only then it started to grow outwards. Since its in the middle I havent head to deal with it growing into the weir yet. It does seem pretty easy to remove if you need to.

    Thanks for sharing! I'm glad to hear that it's not too hard to remove.

    I’ve got some German blue digitata that seems to have an affinity for the acrylic of the overflow. It doesn’t seem to encrust much but the piece that touched the acrylic has started encrusting like crazy. I will try and get a photo!
