Hey reefers I have a Aqua Japan custom 230gal I’m having a problem with the overflow being to loud like the holes are not big enough. It’s just like the sc aquarium I’ll post a picture of overflow and try to upload a video if I can

Can't see the video but my guess is you're getting crashing and so need to run pipe in your box at a higher level. What are you running, Herbie, durso or bean animal?

Yup crashing. Then you'll need to get a longer pipe in your overflow box. How big is this tank? I personally would be petrified running a single overflow pipe.

It's a 230 gallon tank with what looks like a 3/4 inch drain? Wow! Okay you're not going to get the turnover you need from that single drain. Me personally I would drain and get someone to drill some larger bulkhead holes. At least 2 one inch bulkheaads, but preferably larger. You'll thank me if you ever need that emergency.
 

Do you have a iPad or similar type screen mounted somewhere near your tank for control or display?
