    I have a fish that somehow got into my corner overflow, any ideas on how to get him out short of draining the overflow ?

    Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your overly adventurous fish, is it not possible to get him out with a net?

    I've had several fish jump into my overflows. I will normally just pull the durso and let him drain into the sump. There has been the rare occasion i also had to pull my return and fish him out with a net after draining the overflow.
