Back in December, 2013 I went on a little rant regarding how unsightly and bulky most mass produced overflows can be. At the time Reef Savvy had only teased us with a few pictures of their “Ghost Overflow”. I was able to see them in person a few months prior at MACNA Miami and instantly fell in love. What I wasn’t aware of at the time is that this overflow was actually co-designed with Synergy Reef, best known for their uber bright custom sumps. Synergy Reef has just announced that these units are in stock and ready to ship for you to install on any aquarium. The price point comes in at $199.99 retail, which is more than reasonable for such an awesome overflow.Here’s what Synergy has to say about their Reef Overflow:
This is the Synergy Reef Overflow. Originally co-designed with Reef Savvy and released as the “Ghost Overflow”, we have now changed it to the “Synergy Reef Overflow”. It has been talked about for over 2 years and is finally for sale directly from us! Not only did we co-design this overflow, but we have done extensive testing over that time frame. Here are some of the key features of this overflow:
- Ultra slim design with the internal overflow only 1.35″ in thickness!
- Nearly Invisible when installed.
- Removable magnetic weir for easy maintenance and cleaning.
- Dead Silent!
- Rear box allows for various plumbing combinations, including the full siphon system. No other overflow manufacture offers these features in a plug and play overflow solution!
- Will work on any non tempered and acrylic tanks up to 1/2″ Thick (Rimless and Plastic trimmed tanks all work!)
- Simple installation
