    When you finally go to set your tank up and realize you drilled way too low for the overflow... anybody got a new 75 gallon laying around? Wasted $220 on this one

    You can buy one of my 93 rimless cubes for 250. Reef ready no drilling.

    What kind of overflow setup were you planning to run? There should be a way to make that one work for you still.

    I'm using the synergy reef 16" shadow overflow . For some reason I can't upload images right now. The top of it sits at the bottom of the trim and the teeth come down a half inch. Not quite sure what I was thinking. So much for measure twice cut once lol

    Think I could drill 2 new holes an inch above the others and plug the other 2 holes?

    Could probably. You might silicone a piece of glass over or install bulkheads in the wrong holes and either plug them or use them for returns. either way, the fix will likely interfere with the fit of the overflow and it will likely need to be moved to one side.
    ...a note,...I noticed there is a drilling template on that item on the BRS website you can download and print.:D

    Yeah , there's not really a way to make it work. This I'm just going to set my 120 RR back up and call it a day and just sell the overflow lol

    There's a bug with one of the settings, you can upload pics but they have to be less than 2MB. For some reason even though it's set much higher on the new server, that's not passing down to the individual domains. Web Admin is working on it, it's kind of an odd one...

    @Ben Cairy@Ben Cairy try uploading pics again please when you get a chance. I still have one more server tweak to do (just haven't had time) but I was able to raise the upload limit via a workaround.
