From all the pics and research I've done I haven't seen anyone use a corner tank for a vivarium. This tank was used for a planted freshwater fish tank but will now be a home for 6 g&b auratus.
-The tank: All-Glass Black Seal 54 gal corner on black pine stand.
-Lights: Coralife 130 watt PC light with 2 6700K bulbs.
-Filter: Zoo-Med 501 turtle canister filter.
-Building materials: Black expanding pond foam, coco fiber, T&C Rainforest substrate mix, lava rock, gravel, Eco Complete black substrate, black silicone II and lace rock.
It all starts with an emply tank...
A partial false bottom is used for a reservoir for the water feature.
Lace rock is arranged for the waterfall. The water pick up line runs throught the back of the rockwork to the bottom.
Black expanding pond foam is used to fill the gaps and hold the rock in place. After the foam dried the excess was cut off with a razor blade.
Coco fiber is pressed on a layer of black silicone II. The silicone was applied by hand using a latex glove. Right before applying the coco I patted the silicone to raise it up and give more texture. After the silicone dried I use a soft paint brush to remove the excess.
Lava rock was used to fill in the areas not covered by the false bottom, then gravel, then Eco Complete and finally the Rainforest mix. The Zoo-Med filter was set up and running with the return on the top of the rocks.
A few pieces of driftwood, pagota rock and coco huts were used to decorate and create hiding places for the frogs.
It's hard to see in the pic but the shallow pond area has two stages and flows under the wood on the left.
A few plants are planted but more will be added soon. IMO this last pic doesn't really show off the depth of the tank. Sorry but my camera isn't that good.
