    External Overflows

    This is pretty close to what I'll be doing on my big tank except I will just go shorter on a side panel of glass as I can't dremel teeth out on 19mm glass! but the concept is the same. cool pics and all the rage now on overflow boxes!

    Are the teeth cut through the tank glass? Do you lose any tank strength if you cut off the black surround/trim or bracing?

    yes the person did cut thru the glass with a dremel tool and I think the glass will hold especially up high like that were theres not much pressure on the glass anymore. The trim is mostly for show but if there was a cross brace included in the plastic trim then you would probaly need to add a glass brace[depending on tank size.]
