Default My 18x18x18 rebuild! A lot of pics!

Below are pictures of a tank I bought off of CL and my rebuild progress!

These are the pictures of what it looked like

I decided to gut the entire thing and give it some TLC
I started by using cork flats and expanding foam for the back and sides

After the foam cured I took a sharp knife to carve and shape. I then used the Titebond III method to apply the substrate onto the foam. I also applied some Dusk moss mix onto the cork.

I then planted a few plants and mounted 3 bromeliads. I also used java moss for the front half of the tank.
