Controller Cabinet?

Recommended Posts

What all should I consider for a custom controller cabinet? 
 

Using GHL. Going to have at least 2 maybe 3 quad dosing pumps. Ion director (later & when available). KH Director. MP-40’s. Return pump controller. Possibly heater controller (thinking of going with titanium heaters).

I haven’t finished building my cabinet yet.  I’m waiting on another powerbar and my probe holder arrived broken today so have to wait for a new one of those. I won’t get everything out of box until can assemble it fully. But this is what mine is. It is an IKEA besta cabinet.  I went with one glass door for now and will  change out the solid door later on possibly. I Also have 1 additional glass shelf for now and will add some more shelves down the road if need be. All ghl stuff pretty much stacks so it should pretty much be just moving a shelf down and adding to the stack it’s wide enough for 2 units side by side. And there is room for additive storage as well as dosing containers 49C32545-2CEE-4010-9070-C83CA03DB9A5.thumb.jpeg.c50518ac86d834b588450803f6de204c.jpeg

I put it on castors so that I can roll it forward and get behind the tank. I had to counter weight it so that the doors can be open without tipping over, because it’s supposed to be secured to the wall. Hence why there is a concrete block attached at the bottom. :ph34r: adapt and overcome...lol
