    Iam actually looking into a mounting bracket for my Ipod and Some satelite speakers for around the fish room. For me sitting in front of the tank is a religious experience, sometimes readily accessable music would be the finishing touch! :)

    Damn! That is cool!
    There are many times that I wish I had a place to hang/place/store all my tank accessories and yet keep them tucked out of the way when I'm not using them.
    I especially like the fold-out table. Having a workspace to place your tools, plants, ferts, etc., while working in the tank has always been a problem for me. I end up having stuff scattered all over the living room :D

    And hey, I know exactly what you mean about staring into your tank that you have worked so hard on. And adding music certainly does enhance the experience. I have spent many hours in the past chillin' to some relaxing music and spacing out, gazing into the fishtank. Except now that I have put so much hard work into my new tank, that when I stare into it all I do is end up obsessing about little details that aren't exactly perfect instead of let it go and just enjoy it. Oh well, its still loads of fun and I wouldnt give up the hobby for anything.

    Good job on a badass, custom-built, a place for everything, DIY stand!

    Am loving it.
    Can't tell you how handy I think the pull out storage is.
    I am forever laying stuff down and then can't find it even just a few second's later.Early stages of dimentia perhaps?
