Overflow Lid?


New member
I have a new 90g AGA reef ready with mega flow. I was wondering do people put a lid over the overflow to keep light out so algae and things dont grow and clog the standpipes?

Is that a concern, if so whats the best way to cover it?

Just wondering, what type of snails you have in there? Wouldn't the current be to strong for them?

I put a big mexican turbo snail into my megaflow overflow. Too big to fith through the strainer, and eats lots of algae.

I used to put a piece of tin-foil as an overflow cover. Cheap and works good. I took it off so the snail in the overflow would have SOME algae to eat and not starve.
