10 channel switchable(8 switched 2 always on) DJ power center to have easy access to turn off/on pumps, lights, heaters, etc without fumbling for cables and power strips. easily mounts to the cabinet of my RSR 170 with a 3U server mount, leaving plenty of space on the door for the pump controllers and inside wall for the power bricks. all the cables are plugged in through the back, except one on front which i use for my water change pump. also has two USB ports in front, should you want to monitor things with two Wyze cameras. Incredibly brilliant for aquarium use, i don't know why higher end aquarium cabinets don't come with these built-in. cost me $53 from Amazon for power center, maybe $30 for the 3U shelf bracket, another $10 for cable management/tidy covers. Note: I had to use 3U bracket and put power supply in the lowest position to clear the front "lip" of the cabinet. planning on running two of these vertically in a 2U shelf bracket on my RSR350 once i find time to make a schematic.

yes, its a mess in the picture, and its oversaturated and WAY overcorrected. that pic was taken as i was installing the power center and my buddy says "hey, WYD?" lol and i had to mess with the exposure and such to make things more visible.

You think you're confused? What about his father. I love you dad and clean the glass to show your love for me. And take care of that bobbit worm mom.
Ohhh. He uses his father to clean the tank!!!! I was so confused before!

Speaking of steel pipe for light stand. I made my light stand out of a coat rack, modified it so I can rotate one side out to gain tank access. And a little sunflower vine decoration for the wife.
