    So I picked up a used ELOS tank back in August 2015 from someone that left the hobby.
    I like sps corals so I plan to keep mostly sps in this tank.

    Does ELOS tank come with emergency drain?

    No emergency drain. Only one hole for drain.
    All elos has dry overflow box (no water in the overflow box)

    I wonder what the benefit to that would be.

    Probably they don't want "stuff" to grow inside the overflow box? But to keep it dry would mean not running full siphon like herbie/beananimal and you get the gurgle noise?

    They have some weird system that is pretty quiet. No gurgle

    Very little rockwork. Are you going for the minimalist look?

    Lotta work got done real quick! Looks good. Where'd all the livestock come from? No cycling?
