Progress: Almost ready for plants!!!
I have the tank now at about 95% and almost ready for plants. I am ready for microfauna, but trying to source somewhere that the shipping isn't more than the buggers is my issue.
The cool mist is plumbed in, all scaping in the pond completed and a simple 5L plastic container was used for the mistking. It sits ontop of the cabinet so it can gravity feed the pump.
Lights from Spectral ship out tomorrow so hoping to have it installed by weeks end.
I'm also monitoring conditions in the tank to see how the temp and humidity fluctuate during the day without any heating or cooling running. Outside temps are hovering around the 0deg C mark (32F) so it'll give me a good base point. I've also tested what effect the cool mist has in 10, 20 and 30min intervals along with the misting system at 30, 60, 90 and 120 second misting lengths once daily.
