    Here's my simple & small solution.

    1) Buy small box from Ikea ($19)

    2) Drill holes

    How did You mount that false wall to the side of your cabinet? Surface to surface hinges? I am trying to do something very similar with my stand.

    It's mounted with some corner braces that I had laying around. I think they were extras from a trip to Home Depot.

    If you don't like having to cut zipties I recomend getting a spool of double sided velcro. You just cut off a small piece for what you need and if you have to remove something its super simple and reusable.

    I like what you've done here. I'm thinking of have a similar tank and this could work for me as well!

    Ok so I finally installed the acrylic false walls on the inside of my stand. Now all I need to do is instal some more lighting (blue&white LED) and do some cut outs on the top sheet of acrylic to mount my vortech driver. Hoping to mount some apex modules on there in the future as well. [​IMG]

    Some of you guys have some really imaginative setups. I keep it on the simple side myself, the more fancy i try to make it the less likely it is to hit the mark.

    That said, @mdbannister has a great little board we setup. It's plain Jane for sure, but it's effective and and nice enough to be on display and not offend guests or wives. Of course, it needed to be done so badly almost anything would be an improvement :3

    Hey that's pretty sharp. It looks clean enough to be oem.

    Sometimes the little things like a fake wall make all the difference in the world. Is it held in place by gravity or magnets?
