Thanks again

Don't laugh but this is the electrical system I have to plug everything in I bough a really expensive surge protected multi plug as the main and it has a 6foot extension on to plug into the wall the main multi plug had individual switches.
I will plug all the lights into one multi plug and all the heaters into another and the filters into another and with one switch I can switch off all the filters or the other switch all the heaters.

My fish are trained so when the filters go off they know it is food time. I do this so the flake does not get pushed around and I can remove uneaten food if needed.

Thanks Peeps but will still post a few pics when the two ten gallons fill the empty gap and I am going to make a You Tube clip when I get chance.The photo does not do the paint justice as it looks much nicer with the eye. I have mounted ball bearing draw runners behind the small top flap to hold it level for a working surface to do tests ect.

Nice! Can't wait to see the 10 gallons! It was a smart idea to put that flap above the space where the 10g are going to go.

I forgot to show you guys what the lid looks like covered with the thermal insulation

I am sure will work better than a reflector as all the lights bounces around and should give even light across the tank.

I told you about the two ball bearing draw runners here is a picture of it extended to turn the flap into a small table one on each side.

As you can see I have attached some temporary string to grab onto to pull the hinge out but will replace with thin brown rope.
