Got my 75G today!

AH HA!! So happy just got my craigslist 75G for 50 bucks with stand, reflectors, and heater. The only thing is its rigged for a wet/dry filter I think its called with a center overflow and 2 inlets drilled into the glass. I've never had any experience with this type of setup so does anyone know what the advantages/disadvantages of it are?

This is also going to be a huge DIY project for me and I'll try to keep this updated with pictures as much as possible. But I'm looking at augmenting the stand, repainting the borders along the tank, (black) and building my own hood for the tank (using the reflectors he gave me).

Can't say how much I'm looking forward to this, craiglist rocks!

Okay, if I wanted to plug up that center overflow and remove the housing inside would that be possible? Whats the best way to prevent a leak from the hole that was drilled?
