    Great thread! I am fixing to implement an equipment cabinet myself. I just need to figure out what direction I want to go in. I have the Red Sea Reefer 250 and have plans to swap the sump out and possible use the entire stand cabinet for the sump. If I go through with this I'll need a cabinet to hold my equipment and ATO container.

    Keep the idea's coming!

    Thanks, the rails are commercial grade drawer rails from the big box store. I was in the process of finding the cable guide like on a cnc machine but looping has worked fine and lack of need has kept me from making that upgrade yet.

    Mines still a work in progress. Just added the cerebra so I haven't completely finished moving and organizing all the wiring. The best thing I added was the rev a shelf pullout shelves and the pullout contertop.

    This thread inspired me to move all of my equipment out from under my tank. This past weekend I sat aside 2 hours and got it done... Finally!

    Second energy bar mounted inside the cabinet-

    Need to clean this mess up!

    Equipment cabinet in place!

    I'll get before and after shots under the tank stand soon! I will be going back and cleaning up the cables inside the equipment cabinet soon. I had to take my system completely down to do this move and I wanted to get everything back up and running quickly!

    I copied many people from posts like these. I love how easy it is to turn on feeding mode now. 20170107_124551.jpg 20170107_124527.jpg

    I really like the idea of using drain pipe! I am going to see how can incorporate this into my build.
