    Hi guys. I'm trying to setup a DB Board for all of my equipment to run into and make it all neat. I'm getting stuck with the equipment that runs off a AC/DC adapter. Please could someone help. I will even pay for your services. Thanks

    Just note that there are certain legal requirements when it comes to hard wiring a DB box under in the stand area. Cannot wire your DB box into your house DB. If hardwired, it cannot be under a certain height from the floor. I'm no electrician and do not know all the rules. I think it was 1.4m minimum from the floor.

    Interesting, if your tank DB plug into a wall socket. Then a lot of the rules falls away.

    Thanks RiaanP. I have it plugged into a wall socket. Did some research before I took the plunge. I had a friend explain what I did wrong and I just need transformers for the wave makers to convert the voltage to 24v so ill go get them tomorrow. I'll send pics in my tank thread once I'm done.
