I was gonna do a side mount (because it’s so easy), but figured I’d like to see the dosers head on when I open the stand doors. The mounts came out pretty slick...and of course WHITE!

I’ll get some pictures up soon or a video. ;)

Looks awesome! Will your dosing lines feed into the drain compartment or return area?
I normally like to dose into the return, but this sump already has built in connections (in the baffle area). So the GHL will feed into those 4 and the DP4 will probably be routed over to the return side as well.

Wow super clean.

Since you are going for a clean look enclose the back of the stand-you can cut some slots for air circulation
I thought about it.....the curtains kill the clean look. I kinda wanted to leave it open in case I put some equipment inside. I had everything rust the last time I closed my stand up. All the screws and anything metal were rusting.

Maybe I could close it up, cut some vent holes, and run a small fan inside there.??

Did you install a dedicated circuit for the tank?
I am still deciding wether or not my breaker could handle my load
I haven't ever. There's been a few times where I know I should have. I try to spread the load. On this tank...I have power on both sides that just happened to be from different wires.

If you only have one outlet and there's not another outlet close enough....run an extension cord from the closest outlet to the tank. You could run an EB8 or American DJ off that. Just make sure the extension cord is legit and the proper gauge and grounded.
