How does aquarium Overflow work?

An overflow is a box that hangs on the back of the tank (or is sometimes built in) and allows the water to "overflow" to a wet/dry filter (the tank sized filters people have underneath their tanks). The overflow has a U shaped tube that allows water to siphon from the main tank into the overflow box. The overflow box then drains the water down a tube to the wet/dry filter continuing the siphon by pulling the water as it drains. If you are going to purchase on, they should come with instructions. is a good place to learn about all types of fish related things.
