Re: Exo Terra(s) progress report & lighting query
Better-late-than-never updates on both tanks -
Been planted for about six or seven months. Still working through a few issues, but in general am satisfied as a first experience experiment. Always thinking of things I could have done differently (on everything from construction to plant placement), but...oh well. I know - we learn by doing, and the grass is always greener....
Anyway, just a few pics for now. Both are still works-in-progress as I get held up by troubleshooting, plant availability, and waiting for design inspiration to strike. As a reminder, neither are intended for animals - just terraria. Pardon the messy floor of the tall tank...I am less motivated to clean it up just to make a mess again when I go to add plants. I was originally thinking I could use a nice image of a view down into a tropical forest canopy (like a fish tank background picture, but in this case, looking down, as the setup was meant to mimic being up in the canopy by an epiphyte-laden tree) but haven't found an image to use yet and am not sure that'll look the way I imagine it would. Eh, that's a minor issue for now.
