    Hi guys, I am finishing up my upgrade 75 gallon tank, which is based largely off of Earl's 75 c2c with a BeanAnimal: http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/f6/earls-75-a-205884.html I'll post pics and stuff later, but right now I have a few concerns/questions I need help with since I am really...

I'm now upgrading to a 100g glass tank. My 100g uses 3/8" thick glass. Do I need to use that thick for the overflow as well...

    OK, my 125 is drilled with 3x 1" bulkheads and a 55 under for the sump. I'm using a c2c style overflow but I need to know how you guys would plumb this. I was told to hook the bulkheads up to 1.5" reducers and then just drop them right down into the sump with 45 degree bends. Is this a...
