    It will go in from the back from the view of the picture I took. There is a 1.5" lip along the back so I can attach wood to the top if needed. The big back extension is basically an outline of the external overflow. It's there so I can drill holes in it and have piping go through to the overflow and be able to support the piping with more than just the overflow itself.

    It's looking really good man. I'm jotting down the 4th in my calendar to give you a hand. It will depend on how much unpacking I can get done at our new place between now and then though.

    It looks like I will have enough help to move the tank on Sat so I shouldn't need anyone unless you really wanted to come help for any reason. Thanks to everyone who offered to help! I will let you know if anything changes or people back out on me.

    It sucks waiting for it to come back again but hopefully this will be the last tank I ever buy and some things are worth waiting for.

    Does your tank have a coast to coast built in overflow?

    Yes, 1/2" slot the whole way down with no teeth, and then there are 3 holes cored in the back of the tank that go into an external box with bean animal style drains. If I wanted to it should handle around 90gpm through the system, but I will be around 50gpm or so.

    It's official tank is cursed....I blame Reefkoi.... No maybe not. Either way the tank was again shipped back to Texas to be fixed. It had lots of scratches in it so I would not accept it. Maybe the 3rd times the charm?
