Still out of stock? Would they have them yet and already sold out again?
Hehe I hope not LOL. I sent quite a few black to swa.com and they should be almost there. I think the skid left Thursday so next week for sure.

White will be shipped this week :).

Also i hope to have the shelf ready to go, I was thinking of doing #1 and #2 as a pack.

Mine is supposed to be delivered on Saturday. I can't wait to get it assembled. Do you have an estimate on the weight capacity of the cabinet? I am wondering if it would hold a 10g quarantine tank.

Its not made for that amount of weight however it can be modified quite easily by design.

Black and white will be available at the same time.

I purchased two of the Adaptive Reef Controller Boards (one deluxe and one standard) for my new build. The standard board will hold an EB8, 4 Radion XR30 ballast, and two MP40 controllers and ballast. Here are a couple pictures of the build and mounting. Still need to mount the MP40 controllers.

I would like to install some LED lights behind the board so it lights up. Any recommendations on how best to do this?

Most RGB kits off amazon work well, IMO just pick the one with the highest rating. I did have a LED kit but the cost to the end-user after UL and IP 65 was a little too much for the market I figured as amazon sells cheap kits.

As for all of the stuff fitting :) you would be surprised how much work and testing goes into my products. I not only make the products I sell but I use them daily and they must actually work!

So I saw the sump you built for @JoshH on his build thread, and followed you to here. I am blown away! I'd love to get some more info!
