And they're so easy to take care of so don't worry about that.
Back in a minute.
edit: 14" high, 7-1/2" wide, 8" deep. I imagine the XP2 will be a little smaller. Is your cabinet open in the back? You'd need an open back for the tubes to run to the input/and output bars in the tank.
The back of my cabinet is not open but there are holes in it so that I can run tubing through. That is how I have the air pump in the cabinet, the tubing running out the back and into the tank to the sponge filter. The cabinet has a shelf in it and unfortunately, it isn't moveable. So in other words, I can't fit much in there. I like over filtering vs. just enough also though with the sponge, many folks might think it is under filtered. The water stays clear and the water parameters are always good. As you know, I am an extreme water changer. I do 60-70% every 4-5 days. I love putzing with it and let's face it, there is only so much you can do with a fishtank. ha ha
