Came across this pic on Facebook and was impressed by the cleanliness and neatness of the setup under the tank. Who else keeps their systems this neat? Post a pic, let's see your smart sumps. :)

these setups are super neat, however I cannot imagine how one would go about a simple pump service on the skimmer pump/return pump etc, must be nightmarish, looks real neat tho.

Well, definitely not my system.

The one time I did spend all day to neaten up everything, all wires tied up and tucked away. Very neat. Just to struggle to take out one heater wire a couple of days later.

lol, we should have a competition for the worst wiring job on a reef tank, pretty sure a lot of us will have a chance at winning that one. :lol:

One time, long long ago, I had my cables all nicely tied up, out of the way, super neat. Lasted less than a week before I had to remove something.

I never said how big the box is. I have a whole cupboard of stuff, and thats not including the random tanks, dry rock, and spare piping in the garage.
Need to start a thread but who would be willing to own up to their hoarding?
