Tube & Cord Land! - The Jungle Of In-Tank Accessories...
 
So my aquarium is starting to look a little crazy with all the things in it... So far I have:

2 Eheim canister filters I am using on my new 72G setup (a 2224 Professional and a Classic 2213) which both have intake and output hoses

2 Heaters

1 Small Power Head attached to a phosphate reactor....

So the question is... How can I hide all of this stuff? It just looks so crazy in the corners of the tank... Any suggestions?

:P :P :P

How about some tall plants to hide the equipment?

Yep. Cabomba, Hygrophila, Vallisneria, Ambulia, Myriophyllum and Alternantheras are great choices.

You can use slates to hide the powerhead and the pipes of the filters. Other choice is driftwoods.

Thank You!

For plants, I would suggest Aponogeton Ulvaceus. I planted one from bulb and in two weeks under low lighting, has grown to the surface of the water with several of it's stalks already. Plus, fish love the plants to hide in. :)
