Default Re: Pics my new constructed vivarium

you just did foam panels for the background + pvc + rope + some GS foam and then cocofiber etc. over the top of it all?
Yes, that's it. The background of the waterfall need sealant with peat (cocofiber) onto it. the compaktuna/flevopol mixture doesn't work (flushes away eventually).

The mixture that you applied to the tree and roots you say you applied with a paint brush. What was the consistency? How long did you wait between applying the two coats? Thanks again for all this great info.
I mixed 1 part water, 1 part compaktuna and 2 - 3 parts of peat. You'll never get it fully covered or you need maybe 10 layers of it. Drytime depends of the thickness of the layer. I covered the rest with sealant and peat.
