Hey guys! Sorry it has been so long, between school and wedding stuff (read that as stress) I have been busy I am hating my first build mostly due to 3 things. 1) The build itself - I really feel that there is a lot of upper space that could have been better used. 2) I am 90% sure that I did not get enough salt out of my coco bark background as any plant that touches it seems to wither / lose the leaves that touch it. Things like every brom that does not touch it seems to multiply and grow, the ones that do are half dead. 3) The waterfall - though it looks awesome and keeps the water fresh it has soaked my soil so only water hardy plants will live. 4) And an extra one - I can never see through the glass due to the humidity. So this tank is getting a double cpu fan treatment. I am thinking the top two corners on the front blowing out of the viv so air will come in through the front vent and out through the fans. So I have been scouring Kijiji and got a 24x24x18 exo for 60$ because the top was melted. Not using the top this time so I am good. So as I am starting a new tank I am changing it all. First this time instead of a pump to change the water I am thinking of a drain. Where to get the drain/rubber seal? As I hand mist do you think this is needed? How long do you guys think oak or ironwood would last. I am considering using 4-5, 4 inch wide branches cut in half so I get a criss crossing canopy across the top siliconing the half cut section to the glass. Then I am considering filling the gaps with a clay background. Anyone got a good link on how to make a clay background? The soil even after being soaked for about a year seems to be holding up well. Think I am going to use the same mix. Going to need to pickup another bag of hydroballs.
