DT has been filled with SW for a while. Been using the QT period to tweak my plumbing and pretty up my wiring.

Im getting really tired of maintaining 3 tanks. I just want to dump the fish in my DT and get on with my life.

I never understood you guys who run 10 tanks in your house and complain about wanting more. One is enough for me.

I'm in the same boat but with an even smaller cabinet (reefer 250). Going to accept that everything isnt going to fit under the stand and get a separate cabinet for the electronics.

Im not going to surrender just yet!

My plan is to extend that apex board all the way to the bottom and let the wires be messy behind it. I plan to get an apex trident (and reservoir's for alk/cal) which will require a cutout, but better that than looking at all these ugly wires.

Ok, tried this again. I had the bottom of Apex board open as I planned to put in a Neptune trident down the road. Being open at the bottom made it look horrible though...

Turns out the trident will fit even if the board goes all the way to the bottom. So here we go....

Set door on a pin hinge and magnetic push latch so It can be opened/removed easily.

The stupid MP40 driver cant be separated from the motor, so I cant hide that wire....dumb setup. Ruins the whole look.
