Good point. If you use 100% silicone it should be more than enough.

Amazing Goop, available at Lowe’s and other stores is awesome. Some of the strongest stuff i’v used. Have it in some tanks for over 10 years and still strong as new. It is amazing goop.

but as mentioned, 100% silicone works. It’s what all the tank manufacturers use to attach their acrylic overflows to their glass aquariums without issue.
Scrape clean, wipe with alcohol, re-attach
Nice to know. Thanks for posting.

no,you have two options make or order glass overflow box,2 run a stand pipe w screen fitting to desiered height,same with return pipe pvc drill1/8" hole in return elbow just below water line
Don’t remember ever seeing a glass overflow. Cutting a weir out of glass would be pretty tricky. Would think you’d have a hard time finding a glass guy willing to do it.

Ive never not seen someone use ABS plastic or acrylic on glass tanks. I’ll have to do more research. Appreciate the knowledge on silicone etc
