Progress: Glass Tops and Ready for Background and waterfall finish.
This past week I have been finishing up the background testing, which I have concluded I will be using the silicone and coco fibre due to how it held up during testing, dryout time and softness.
Top right is the silicone and fibre option
The glass tops I have also siliconed in place, then bonded on the hinge with E6100 (yes I know not frog safe, but it is not in contact with any of that and external to the tank). You apply the product similar to contact cement, then bond both parts together while the 'glue' is still soft.
After getting that completed, it allowed me to finish filling the last of the gaps with the remaining foam I had. This project has used 5 full cans of foam!
Also, I've been working with Kurt to finalize the design of the light fixture. Due to me having the fans on the top, depth of tank, and wanting to feature certain areas, some custom design work was needed with the standard size lights he makes. Hope it all works out!
