    I have an old 72 gal bow front that was set up for saltwater. The bottom is drilled and there was a plastic overflow attached to the inside rear glass. The over flow was removed to turn it into a terrarium. I would like to restore it to being a saltwater tank. Is there anyplace that I get an overflow of the type built into saltwater aquariums?

    As a last resort I can always get a hang on overflow, but I prefer to restore it to its original configuration.

    Is the overflow in the middle on the back or on the corners?

    Not sure but Melev’s Reef might still be making them. I would contact him and find out. #melev

    You could also build one yourself with a couple pieces of glass or acrylic. Or make one for free like the youtube video below. Just depends on how much you want to spend.

    Melesreef does make an overflow that will fit, but that DIY weir looks interesting. Decisions, decisions.

    Thanks
