You said it, Jakie!

Great work, Kris! I'm loving little Baxter, and the built-in spot for the power cord, hooks, and wire hangers are a brilliant move! I can't wait to see what you put INSIDE of the tank ;)

Thanks I think it just easier to spend a little more time and money now and save some headaches later. Its just easier to do it with out an actual aquarium on top. It sounds rude to say but I'm actualy proud for making myself be neat about it.

It absolutely is NOT rude to say... Not being a neat person, while I work or after, I find what you said an insight as to how neat people think. Cause when I get something new its like Xmas morning and I'll tidy up later.... if I have time. Usually after I have tripped over something, or stepped on something I realize... oh picking that up might be less painful. Then I'll go on cleaning streaks and it's beyond spotless, kind of a Jekyll and Hyde lifestyle but I live somewhere in the middle of both with clutter.

I'm loving this build thread and keep it coming please!! You do know that the fish won't stay where you put them right? (tease!)

This sounds do much like me with the clutter and the cleaning sprees, happy to know I am not the only one.

Kris I love the idea of the hanging shelves that you did on the door. If out would work with my stand I would borrow that idea, but with a bow front the doors are curved, might see about doing shelving of some kind on one side that sits in the bottom of the cabinet. Look forward to seeing things come along.

I can't figure out how to upload the video to this thread so I'm pasting a link to my Youtube account. Sorry about the troubles I must have tried to upload about 5 times with no luck. Yes I know the bottom is dirty, I thought i had it all wiped out. No problem though it will all be cleaned out in a few days

Looking good, and really liking some of the different things you did to organize underneath your cabinet. Really do think I will be using some of those ideas as I get my tank set up. Your other tank looks great also and love the angels
