Hi all ok so the wife has finally agreed to letting me have a bigger aquarium so I've taken into account what she likes (curved front tanks) and got myself a boyu 198ltr aquarium. Purchased it for £30 second hand  👍
So I've been looking at ways to drain the main tank to a sump and am not having much luck finding anything I like.
I don't want a weir comb box in the middle as I think they look ugly  so was looking at the tank connectors with the grill as shown in the picture but for the life of me am unable to find one to purchase.
So the next thing was a corner weir comb like in the picture but still it's taking up valuable tank space.

Any ideas people?

If your building your own , a Ghost overflow style may suit what your after but they are also only available in America , I'm sure those outlets pictured are available in UK think it was a kit with pipes , about £120 from memory .
