    Hey everyone had to sell my tank a while back due to some career moves and I am now looking at getting back into the hobby. I saw the attached tank for sale on craigslist it claims to be a perfecto. Odd thing is the overflow is square and transparent. Any thoughts on this tank good buy bad Buy ? Any experience with one ? He is asking 250 tank stand light and sump. Thanks for any advice.

    I just sold my 60g tank, stand, and lights (not LED) for $100. It was very hard to find people that want fish tanks
    That stand is ugly. Are those LED lights? Those alone could make it worth it. But the stand is what bothers me. Lets us know what you do.

    its a t5ho light set up I believe as for the stand I think it could be cleaned up I just never seen a square clear overflow like that I guess I could turn it in to a mini refugium ???

    I think this is a good deal. You should buy it.

    I have seen those types of overflows before. I actually have one it's a 30L tank with one in the corner. Even without the standpipe, it's quiet.

    I like the idea of a mini-fuge, you could get some mangroves growing in there...

    There are two holes in the overflow. One has a black bulkhead and the other is a white bulkhead mounted opposite. I would assume one is the drain and then one is the return that goes up and over the overflow in some fashion.
