Can anyone recommend a "ghost style" overflow box. I'm considering covering up the bottom holes on my tank and drilling for a new minimalist style overflow box. The few on bulkreefsupply (Eshopps and Fiji) have horrible reviews. Does anyone make a quality one? Thanks

Synergy and modular marine are among the top tier.

I use the fiji cube overflow and I have no complaints other then having to silicone the outside gasket but I think that was due to my horrible drilling that chipped the hole.

I’ve been running eshopps overflows for years without issues on my 100g (eclipse L) and my 55g (prodigy M). If you want a box that really blends in, the prodigy only sticks out by 1/2”. It’s crazy.

EMS and Modular Marine are the best of the aftermarket overflows, but perhaps overkill on a smaller tank. I’m not a fan of the design of the synergy .... don’t like the dropped external box. Do a search here on R2R and you’ll see a lot of negative experiences. I picked modular marine for my 450 tank because I needed a large skim box, but they seem to be a bit hard to get at the moment. If I was buying one now for a smaller tank I’d probably go with the Fiji Cube LoPro. I really like the removable skim box.

I just installed a eshopps PF-300 on my 40gl breeder and had to redo my plumbing on my return to restrict water flow even with my return on its lowest setting the PF-300 can’t handle it the ball gate I installed is nearly shut.
Other than my actual tank the PF-300 is by far the worth product I’ve bought for my system.
Live & learn I guess
