    Here is mine. The wiring is behind a wall that I can pull out if needed. Isa all behind a glass door and in a exterior cabinet except for my two DOS which are inside my stand

    i have not finished getting everything up and running but when i do i will have to redo my apex mounting as i ran out of space and learned alot about where things need to be and cord lengths not to mention the separation of power and data.. IMG_5305.jpg

    Started with this jumbled mess of wires cause I set it up in the winter and couldn't break out the table saw. IMG_2006.JPG
    IMG_2007.JPG
    Now it's all tucked away and I had space for dose pumps in my tool cabinet

    Not as nice as a lot of you guys but a big step in the right direction for me

    This is a great thread. I’ve been toying with adding a controller to my 110gal setup. The ideas for layout and placement are great. There’s no reason that the “control room” should look as nice as the display.

    i tend to disagree as i intended my fish room to be a display of its own and i would say everyone that comes by really enjoys the fish room, it is a real discussion piece and people are blown away on what it takes to run a salt water system, of course i have some bells and whistles but what the heck...

    go big or go home..lol

    I made a key typo. I think the control room SHOULD look as good as the display. Considering the cost of that hardware, I’d be showing it off too.
