Yes, except for the Size, that exactly how mine looks. I want to remove them, clean the area behind them, replace the bulkheads, and put the overflows back.Usually yes. Here is a picture of my 180 tank with built in overflows.
Notice the dual overflow boxes? They are both siliconed directly to the glass.

I have lived by that "if it ain't broke" for a long time now, and I am leaning towards that. Thank you for your insight.Since you asked my opinion, I would say no. I am of the opinion "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Just clean as best you can inside and leave them be. What if you choose the wrong silicone? What if you choose the right one and it comes loose after its filled and has livestock in it? I think removing them presents more variables than you need.
I want to thank you for originally replying to my post about a leak in my tank. I'm pleased to report that we now believe there is no leak! But originally we thought there was and was unhappy with what you told me about replacing it and after a bit of research, I found that you were correct and I want to thank you for being straight up with me. It hurts to hear the truth sometimes but I prefer that to false hopes. Thanks again.Where is the leak? If it's leaking at one of the seams, then that means the structural seams between the panels is bad. Just adding silicone in the corners isn't really the way to fix this. If it's at a bulkhead or overflow or something, that's different.
Yes, if you want.
It will be a bit less than that with head loss. No big deal either way.
No explosion just now setting it up, was cleaning it (just got it used) and found water underneath. But it was apparently from the cleaning or maybe transporting it to my house which we did in the rain. Thanks again.That maybe the case for uploading bigger pics???
Thought we were in the middle of an exploding tank…
Glad your reef is not leaking…
Well glad to know your all sorted outNo explosion just now setting it up, was cleaning it (just got it used) and found water underneath. But it was apparently from the cleaning or maybe transporting it to my house which we did in the rain. Thanks again.
So I'm going to build a new stand using the Rocket Engineer formula. I'm stealing all kinds of ideas everywhere for the hood. For the sump I'm using an Aqueon 20 gal long combined with a Fiji sump/refugium baffle kit with slight modifications. I like the stand that came with the tank but it is old and has been moved several times. I'm worried about its structural integrity. I'm probably being a little over cautious but thats ok right?. The hood has too much salt damage IMHO so that is going to be rebuilt for sure. I got the tank stand and hood for $600 so it's still a good deal I think. Plus, I will keep the stand for garage storage and I get to make the, "look" all my own.
