      With a weir, yes. Herbie overflow (so a durso and a stand pipe), 1 emergency above water level, 1 return (with 2 locline), 1 drain directly to house plumbing for water change purposes. Everything with ball valve.

      Practically the same plumbing as Joey with his 375g. Mine will be 240, and my 2 main drains (herbie) are 1.5 inch, opposed to his been 1 inch.
