Jim.. here are your answers....

> More details please.

> What is a show hex?

A "show hex" was a size aquarium, manufactured by Oceanic Company, that was
specifically made for showrooms in Aquarium stores.. it is a "demo" so to
speak... Basically, it's a generic name... It's a fine quality tank,

> Are they drilled with overflow boxes?

No... it's all external overflow boxes.

> What kind of wet-dry?

The name was called "Drop-Tec" the company no longer makes them. Basically,
it's a 10 gallon tank converted to a wet dry filter.

One on both tanks?

One tank has the wet dry.. the other has the Eheim Cannister filter...

What kind of pumps?

The pumps are "RIO-2100's" This, I think is a nice quality water pump.
Never had problems with it...
