  • mounting power bricks

    just curious if anyone has found a better way to mount power bricks to the wall of the aquarium. velcro is the only thing I've found but I want to use something a little less janky

      true, I'm just trying to do a good job this time and was curious if there were any other ways people have thought of. This rats nest on the other system is terrible lol

            I have seen some people use fabricated acrylic braces. They attach them to a surface and then slide the power brick in. I do think they are self made though.

              hmm, I'd be interested in seeing them if you can find pictures.

                  Do you have a 3d printer or would you be going to a lab. I wouldn't mind paying for pla if you made like 10 more lol

                        I have something now, Just haven't printed it yet. Still working on my cabinet and kind of put it on hold till I get my holes drilled.

                          I wouldn't mind looking at the drawing and I would love to pay for some if you wouldn't mind printing some. I need about 20 if you could work up a price

                            I had used these to mount mine in my stand when I first set the system up. I took everything down when I redid my under tank area and now it's just a rats nest.
