Some new toys I picked up - Mame Overflow and Solar-I

Hey guys, I picked up a Solar-l and a Mame overflow. I don't know if I'm going to use the Mane overflow on the 60p or the 45c same goes for the Solar-l. The Mame overflow was picked up from a local Texan who used it on his saltwater aquarium. He sold the Mame because it was too small for his new larger aquarium. The Solar-l was picked up from ADG, Frank had an Anniversary Edition left so I picked it up, thanks Frank

Here are a few teaser pics:

Do you have any information on long term use of the mame overflow? What has been your experience with reliability, etc? How does it compare to the lifereef or cpr?

I did a bunch of searching and most of what I came up with was from the barr report. Some info on co2 loss etc.

I have a contact in Japan that is willing to send this to me. It looks much nicer than the American alternatives but does not seem capable of handling much flow. I did see a youtube video that appeared to have them set up in sequence, but that would get expensive very quick!

i know this is an old thread but the Mame Design overflow looks very nice.

I see another application for the Mame OF or at least aportion of the OF. I would like to set up a continuous drip water exchange system on my nano tank and this overflow would work well but i don't need the return portion of the system.

Perhaps your contact in Japan could communicate my request/idea?

I may end up just making my own but the glass looks so nice!

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. MW
