Default Twin Sherman Vent 18x18x24's

This is my first time making my own tanks from scratch, it took many sliced fingers and made my living room a mess for a couple days, but it was well worth it.

I siliconed egg crate to the back wall for extra support as the hardscape was going to be heavy. I then put the pieces of wood into position and foamed them into place. I carved out all the cracks in between the wood so that the foam was not visible but still holding up the wood, then I attached hygrolon in the bare spots and filled all the cracks in with sphagnum; like a cork mosaic.

I have something like 20 orchids in there, along with some marcgravia and epiphytic ferns. There is a small corner in the front that has only spaghnum and I have some bladderworts planted there. I can list the species if anyone is interested. The rest of the tank has a mix of bentonite and turface as a substrate. I am waiting on an order from ecuagenera for a few more hard to find plants and then I will just be waiting for it to grow in. I have the second tank in progress now.
