Looks neat, I always get nervous when I see water lines and electrical outlets. I am digging the shelf space attached to the doors! If I can fit some I will do so. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the kind words.
My system is fed from a GFI outlet and I do my water changes with a homemade Python. This really reduces the risks of spills, so there's really not much to worry about. The shelves came from Lowe's. They were probably about $4.00 each.

Beautiful job, and it inspires me to do something about my under the tank area, see below. Maybe my picture should be the one with the international "don't do it" sign superimposed, and yours should be the contrasting one?
