    Very well thought out! Clean design and the custom build provides perfect room for all of that equipment! Some very lucky fish are waiting for you out there. Can't wait to see it stocked! Thanks for sharing!

    I will not disagree with you there. I have spent the last 3 hours working on wiring and had to take a break but it got frustrating. I hate running wiring

    Wiring this was not fun. I was not happy the way everything ended up. I wanted a cleaner side panel but the truth is I just simply didn't have enough space. I will get zip ties and such but the wires will be visible to an extent

    Oh well. Can't have everything your way. Wiring the dosing pumps and the ATO was not fun at all, but the worst of all was the power wire for the RA relay. It took me close to 30 minutes to run one wire. I had to stop in the middle of the wiring because I got so frustrated lol. In the end I got it though. I didn't buy enough of the low profile extension cords. Still need 4 more but I may just buy all 8.

    I never imagined that I would use up more than one relay but as it stands, this is what I have plugged in:

    Main Relay
    1-Return Pump (Main)
    2-Heater (Not yet purchased)
    3-Light fixture
    4-Calcium doser
    5-Skimmer
    6-Alkalinity Doser
    7-ATO
    8-Sump Lights

    Second Relay
    1-Chiller (not wired as I do not know the location of it yet)
    2-Return pump #2 for chiller
    3-MP20
    4-ORP
