Default 55 Gallon vivarium redo #3

This is the 3rd time I've redone this tank. I hope it'll last for a little while before I redo it agian.

It houses 4 galacs.















I am trying some clay based substrate mix I made. I hope it works out well. I cant wait for this to grow in a bit. The plants are a bit out of place but I feel like I need some different stuff. Either that or all the same plants. We'll see.

I hope you enjoy!

Thanks,
Nick

What happened to the tank before that you had to redo it?

Cool, what kinda background is that, how did you hinge the screen, and which clay recipe did you use?

Nice! Personally I'd like to see/hear more about your terrarium lid! Did you make that or is that a retail item?

The first time was because the paludarium design wasnt working out well for me. The next time was turning it from a paludarium into a regular viv, and then now I just wanted to make the regular viv a little more improved from what I learned building smaller vivs.

The top is a peice of 1/4 plate glass cut to fit, with sanded edges. It has a 1/2 inch hole for a misting nozzel in the middle 1 inch away from the front edge. Infront of those I have 2 peices of window screen that are about 2 inches wide, with some white PVC cabinet handles screwed on.

This is probably a strange request but . . . can we get some shots of that? I'm still very intrigued. Thanks!

Is there a hinge between the glass and screen or just a tight fit ?
