    I decided to get a bit creative with the ones that are on one of the lab tables. I plan to do this to all the other tables as well. I thought it was pretty neat :) seeing as there's about 5 extra drilled out tanks, why not?

    That's a lot of plugs. Kind of looks like what's underneath my fish stands. Are you going to wrap the outside with something to hide everything?

    I have mine all going to a power plug and mounted to the wall just alongside my tanks. I also labeled each one with a piece of tape so I could tell which was which.

    I'm thinking about taking acrylic paint to it and painting a little ocean theme. This powers 3 tanks and a fry tank

    Not a bad idea.
    My only suggestion.... put a rubber grommet, or cut some filter tube down the middle to spread over the glass edges.

    Over time, you might find the glass rubs into the power cords.

    Sweet, good idea! I'll be sure to do that tomorrow when I head back up there. :)

    Well, I'm no artist, so I'll call it abstract ad proportionately inaccurate. . My Neon Tetra is a blob, and my pleco looks like a shark. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1354304490.887158.jpg
