hi. my first post here to showcase my OFBT's abode.
seems toads are getting a raw deal here so i'll give them a heads up
i did not make an actual construction build log so i'll give you the basics.
materials used: celotex, foam filler, grout, pond paint plus the usual sealants etc
now for the plan (don't laugh) and latter stages of the build.
so after glass divider, rocks, pool area and land with drainage built, the grout and paint applied, it was left to dry. then hydroton, mat spreader, earth, moss, branches and stones were placed.
plants and water test. (2 week trial) first piece of fascia placed.
the best rock effect colour pic
the lighting is a 60w dayglo for 8hrs thru a part meshed lid so i don't suffer with condensation issues. as seen all lighting is automated with timers. second timer is for my night viewing. more fascia placed.
water feature installed and anubias plants for the pool
night light installed
night viewing (til midnight)
hood frame built, fascia 99.9% complete (needs touch up)
now pics of the inhabitants
already planning the escape route!!!
thanks for looking.
