Okeedokee, let's see if I can figure out how to add photos to a post...
I think attaching the photo will make it appear in the post?
FIRST PHOTO (sorry about reflection from window blinds)
Right now I've got the cords coming out the left/back of the filter hood. It comes down and forms a "U" (held in place with scotch tape, left of where George's tail is), then the continues down under the table. I've placed a towel behind the tank to catch water drips from this 1st "U".
SECOND PHOTO (please excuse post-it flags on wall, my 4 yr old went wild)
Under the table, above the middle shelf, you can see my 2nd "U". The cord comes down from above, makes a "U", comes back up and is tied to the table leg to hold it in place.
Then the cord continues down towards the floor and creates a 3rd "U" near the bottom shelf, and then comes back up to the outlet on the wall. The drippy filter cord is connected to the outlet on the wall. (The heater cord which isn't drippy is connected to the power strip on the floor)
This shows a top-down view from the back of the tank. You can see the cord coming out of the filter, forming a "U" (held by scotch tape) and continuing down behind the table. Water drips from the bottom of the "U" onto the towel I've placed underneath it.
I must say the tank looked better before, when I did not have a towel behind it. I guess this is why people put pretty picture backings on the back of tanks, so you don't see stuff like that.
I have a couple of close-up photos of George over here
, along with pics of what I think are the start of a bubble nest?
George is hyper active today. Did someone spike his pellets?
