I'll try and get pics of mine but its hard the way my tank is.
Basically there is two overflows in each corner. Their is a piece of PVC pipe coming up with a plastic strainer in it. Then a round foam block on that. Inside the pipe, sits a plastic float, so if for some reason the water raises faster in the tank, the float raise and exposes more of the strainer/foam to water and more drains down, preventing overflow and anything going down the drain.
My sump is a wet/dry so both drains drain down into a piece of filter floss on the drip tray, then over bioballs suspended over egg crate, then through the bubble break, then another big foam block before going to the return pump, which I split off to a T for 2 returns.
20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
