Arrow Vertical 5 feet tank with diy background and tree

I just finished my new tank yesterday, the tank is 160x80x60cm (200 gallons)
background was created with styrofoam, great stuff and finished with rubber seal and coco peat.
Here are some pictures of the build
















and a short video
Encyclia, baskis, Gibbs.JP and 2 others like this.

Im pretty sure that that wont be enough. On my 90cm high most plants under half of the vivarium died because of too low light using 1x 30watt led 6500K

alle the plants in this viv are sourced from my old viv, which was even a bit taller and had the same lighting.
I just have to wait and see if it isn't enough i still have a spare solar raptor light laying around
