Considering 130.4 box. How many inches does the overflow protrude from back into display?

It comes out 4" off the back glass. If there is any other info you need please let us know. :)

#2 the rimless tank is beautiful but every time I go to clean the glass, water constantly spills over onto the front, every time

What does this have to do with Waterbox? You bought a rimless tank, when doing a water change/maintenance spillage happens. Maybe be more careful so you don't splash water? How would you recommend they fix this "issue"?

I know this is kind of sacrilege in a reef forum, but here is my 230.6. Unfortunately it is currently set up as a freshwater community tank. I am considering making it a clownfish harem tank with lots of clowns and nems. This wont happen for some time though, if at all.

Love that look. The green always looks so nice. I wouldn't change a thing with respect to how that looks. Very nice balance of green plants, brown wood, grey rocks, and beige sand. Really admire that.

Are your loops ok for coral growth? I Have a single 24" on my 29 gallon and didn't look suuiciently bright so added a $30 chinese strip that actually has more light and also some red LEDs. Mine is the "Marine" model of loop which said is good for softies and LPS but I.m not so convinced.

Any updates on the front glass bowing comment? Has anyone else noticed this issue? Need some assurance from WaterBox on this before ordering my 130.4, if not might as well get a braced tank. Read about RedSea tanks bursting!

I slight amount of deflection is completely normal, you will see that in most glass aquariums. It is perfectly safe

I had to take a break from unpacking boxes and play a little.
Just got a pair of the IceCap 2k gyres. I removed one end and put the cap on. Going to see what kind of flow I get like this.

I do not have the waterbox tank, but i love the style of sump. A friend gave it to me and from now on I do not need to think about the filter sock either roller matt^^. I also love the way i still can put the zeoreactor in the pre-ATO without deep it in the water...so save space for more live rock in the sump....

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