    Can anyone suggest a place I can move my electronics to, out of my sump area?

    My reservoir is on the right, in that small, black ottomman. The tank is located in a corner. The electrical outlet is on the left as you can see.

    I'm hesitant to put any electronics on the outer sides of the stand, because in the event I spill water or need to get closer to the tank, I won't be spilling water on any sensitive electronics. It also allows me to get really close to the sides of my tank without having any electronics there.

    Maybe to the wall beside the outlet? If so, what should/can I use to hide it?

    Any suggestions?

    Attach a separate wooden box on the left next to the outlet for your electronic gears.

    Suggest a simple small night stand table a bit to the left.
    Specifically the type with a cabinet section and a drawer section.
    Electronics inside cabinet.
    Fish junk inside drawer.
    Match finish to stand.
    Curios on top, if wife-acceptance-factor is an issue.

    Thanks guys. Wife acceptance factor is always an issue, but I tend to pick things that work well for her tastes.

    I like the idea of the cabinet/drawer section. I wonder if Ikea has anything similar.

    I'll keep looking.
    If anyone sees any furniture that might work there, I'd be grateful.
