are overflow filters ok ?

or do they cause too much surface agitation ? what if you keep the water level very high to minimize this ? how much light to start out with ?

i also keep a few snakes my kids caught , collect surplus military firearms , hunt , and am a general tinkerer / mad scientist - hahahahahaah - i should fit right in here
