Home depot has them. Staples too
If searching online most of them are referred to as furniture hole covers. Here's a link http://www.homedepot.com/s/drill%20hole%20covers?NCNI-5&style=List&s_tnt=82648:1:0
I like the Ikea Besta shelf for the Apex Neptune 2016. I like the smoked glass front, but I need a taller one and they're hard to find.
just look up Grommets on Ebay and a bunch of them will come up.
Here is my new setup that I will be going with for my Apex control panel! I used my old Coraline 10 gallon stand and custom cut a sheet of plywood so it fit in there perfect. My EB8 power energy bars in the back behind the pcs of plywood. I am not done yet I just need to cut out where my Oval large Grommets go and install them. This is what I have so far. Apex Classic, ALD module, PM2 for my Salinity module, Two TUNZE 6055 controllers, Main Apex Display, Netgear WIFI box, TUNZE ATO box and my Skimz Protein skimmer controller. Ones everything is installed this stand will sit right next to my main 120 mixed reef display..
I tried to keep mine simple. Since I don't need access to the PM modu
les they are mounted on the backside of this board. My eb8 it is mounted on the backside of the cabinet so everything can plug in and show no wires. All I really need access to the Apex controller, the vortex controller and the return pump controller so I can go into feed mode. Honestly I rarely ever look at the Apex controller, I usually access that on my phone or on laptop.
Lol super jealous of everyone on here. I have limited space, no option for a cabinet, and honestly hate the look of the new APEX (so no mounting next to the tank out in the open). So here is my current work in progress for mounting in my stand. I got it today and don't plan on sleeping tonight
Here is the beginning stage of mine.
Here is mine. I wish I would have thought of placing the eb8's on the back side of the cabinet. All of my power bricks are mounted to the back of this cabinet.
Wow some great wire managements in here.

Here's the pics.
EB8 mounted in back of cabinet. All modules are behind front board with the control display.
@Vwfan - This is what my Apex panel currently is looking like! Are your referring to the Raceway ducks that are gray or the computer grommets?
Looking great mine has been inside my stand for the last 18 months well I finally got my act together and ordered a unit from Ikea so I will be moving mine to the outside will post when finish
Just finished mines yesterday, i might be adding a door.
These are awesome! I am getting ready to build mine! Brand new 180 being built - I have space, I just don't know where to start. Do any of you have your sump in the basement? If so, how do you run your control boards? One by the tank and the main apex in the basement??
Here's mine, Ikea special.
Used a besta tv stand and one of the shelves as a false wall and mounted all the modules in the front. Behind it is the energy bar and all wires.
