    So yesterday I purchased a 40 gal JEBO tank from another Reefer on here and I know that jebo's suck, so that is why I am asking for some advice... Basically, what I have is a 40 gal tank that is not drilled. I also got a wet dry acyrlic filter from him that is http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...7&pcatid=18367
    What I am basically asking is should I drill the tank or just simply get an overflow box to run the system? I am going to buy some metal halides, either an outer orbit or a pendant system for the tank... For those of you that don't know. I have done this for a long time but have downgraded... I am not an idiot, but would like some advice due to the fact that I am not a nano person.... Thanks in advance.... Chris

    I'd call it personal choice Ct.I dont like the look of an overflow box hanging inside the tank,so I'd drill it.
