    I can recommend CPR overflow boxes with an Aqualifter pump for when the power goes out.

    External overflows?
    I've heard great things about the CPR overflows coupled with an aqualifter pump.
    I bought this exact setup for my new tank but returned it yesterday because I decided to drill my tank and install an internal overflow with a durso standpipe. But all the reviews i heard on the CPR setup were very positive.

    You'd better get used to it ;)

    I'm the quickest keyboard slinger around.

    And apparently I'm a huge dork for using that type of language... Sigh.

    I recommend a U-tube type overflow like the Eshopps. I used 1 for over 15 years and it never failed once. Plus, you don't need an aqualift pump like the CRP style.
