    there was someone selling a 140g tank for $100 in july and now hes wants it out of the garage so its free. is there a way to drill the back glass to make an overflow? because there isnt one.

    um, YEAH?!?!?!? LOL Shoot, go for it! Check for leaks when you get home, and just reseal it if there is. It's still a FREE tank!

    That drive is non-trivial. However, It is free. Even you if you mess up with modifications, the least it will become is a learning experience. I would say go for it.

    You could drill the tank or use a HOB overflow box - either way, free is a great price

    The sad part is this isn't my dream tank so it's going to a lfs. A friend just told me a week ago he's selling his marineland 150g cube. He's want $1500 for it and it comes with everything he as which is quite a bit. 2 Ecoray 112d LEDs, the expensive apex controller, 2 dosing pumps, and some really nice coral. Here's a couple pics of it. This mean I've got to sell my 90g.
