    On Sunday did you tell me you really liked the Synergy Shadow....or was it the other brand that you really liked. I *may* have removed some corner overflows today in preparation....:smile:

    I like the looks of the planet aquarium one better. The synergy operates well but is just injection molded now. Not sure what the cost difference is... you may want to ask mural what he thinks as he has two running on the school tank.

    The Planet works well, but it did not come with any of the internal plumbing parts. I don’t know if they offer that but I didn’t get that if they do. It is completely acrylic so really sturdy but has some sharp edges on the inside.

    Wouldn't injection molded be a good thing, no seams to leak? The only way it would fail would be if it cracked? I'm just thinking out loud, I don't actually know any of that to be true or not.

    I had some trouble finding the Planet Aquariums ghost overflow on the internets, do they sell it as a stand alone kit? I saw one from eShopps, one from glass holes.com, and one from Reef Savvy that was $250.

    The reef savvy one is much less from BRS. And yea, injection molded does have it’s advantages.

    BRS has it for 159

    I’ve had glass holes and they can be loud if you can’t get it dialed in.
