A look inside.

Hey everyone, I don't know if this has been done on this forum, if it has, feel free to toss a link in here and close this down, if not... lets try it.

I want to see the insides of people's stands! How you manage your equipment, wires, cords, lines, QTs, tools, ferts, etc...

I feel the inside of an aquarium stand can be almost as impressive as the tank itself, lots of good ideas on how to fit a whole life support system in a tiny box out there.

This will also serve as inspiration on how I can organize the inside of my stand for my 40b! So lets see em!

Mess or no mess I wanna see it! I want the good, the bad, and the ugly here... We can see what works great, what maybe doesn't work so well, and what things you'd do differently!

Lol it's not ME that's offering! I merely recommended against asking that here. Most stands are open in the back so there isn't any special cable routing that has to be done.

Well see... Having worked in an electronics store back in the day, I am a little OCD about cables, wires, cords, etc... and with aquariums, I find I'm OCD about the piping as well, so I am a bit curious if many others are too hehe
