    I see now.

    So couldn't you cut a rectangle of acrylic to fit inside the overflow box? Then drill a hole on both ends to match up with the slots in the overflow. And a couple plastic nut and bolt. Then you could adjust the height anywhere you want it. Well up to the actual height of the box inside the tank anyway.

    Like this, acrylic panel on inside, the green would be plastic bolts to keep it in place...

    Thanks for the idea. I might have to give something like that a try. Any idea where to get those plastic bolts?

    Cool thanks. I’ll have to go look for them and grab a piece of acrylic too while I’m there. If it works I’ll post some more pics

    Thanks again for the idea Trigg. It actually worked perfectly and now my water level is just a hair under the top rim.

    Not Home Depot but I did find them at Lowe’s. Between the screws and piece of acrylic it was about an $8 fix
