    Thanks! I actually just recently got my drilled 40 breeder with the eclipse s up and running. It's dead silent and works great. My only complaint is that they give you a cover for the outside box but not for the inside box lol.

    Hi Crabs, I was thinking the same. They should have a cover for the inside box too. We have to make one...LOL

    Yeah I thought that was kinda odd also. But all in all it works pretty good.

    Another user on here created a stl file for me based off dimensions I made him. I'm trying to track down either someone with a 3d printer or who does custom acrylic work to make me a cover.

    That will be great. I still have some 1/4 " plexiglass from the filter suck holder that I made for my sump, so let see if I can make a cover.

    Great build wish i had went with a different overflow box rather than the glassholes one i chose its a tad on the noisy side if you have to much return flow, but we live and learn.

    Thanks. Went I start making my build, I look on the different option that I have and went with the Eshopps. Now, my return is from glass holes. My overflow box is not that noisy and I can live with that, a little relax...LOL

    What's the thing measuring on the front glass of your tank? I'm guessing ph perhaps? Salinity?
