Hey Crew,

It's nearing time to cut into my virgin beauty and I have a lingering question...

Is there any difference between draining out of the back of the overflow versus the bottom?

-Flow Rate?
-Noise?
-Air bubbles?
-ect??

There's not a lot of difference between coming out of the bottom were going out the back. Coming out the back is a little easier space wise and easier to plumb. But you have to make sure that you have the room between the back wall of the tank and your back wall. As per noise wise I don't think Bill really be any difference.

Well the back of the tank will be sitting in my garage so I will more than likely go ahead and plumb out the back... though I am a little dissapointed sine I would have had the overflow boxes run down half way instead on the full height... Live and learn ;)

On a possitive note: The stand I began constructing last night will be easier to build...
