That tank looks great. I like how you integrated the fake roots and vines into the background. I'll have to use that technique in my next build. The whole thing looks very natural.

Any recent updates?

I just stuck the the end part of the metal clothes hanger to the expanding foam and hung the vines on them.... Sorry for the late reply

Just a little update.... The setup has matured and went through many changes... Ups and downs...As I'm adding more orchids sometimes I'm not getting that sweet spot that will make all of them happy all the time
Still overall I'm happy with the way it is...

I'm currently visiting Malaysia and was lucky enough to be here during an orchid show in Penang... I got me about 10 miniature orchids at a very good price... Nothing more expensive than $6... Bromeliad at $3
Anyway... Here are some recent pictures of the setupScreenshot_20190819-172756_1566207462239.jpgScreenshot_20190819-172654_1566207614822.jpgScreenshot_20190819-172654_1566207614822.jpg

This tank is very attractive. When I first saw the first post-planting photographs from years ago, my immediate thought was "This is the kind of viv I'd expect to see a picture of on Pinterest alongside professionally-build vivs."

I did not think to ask, what was the cost of crystal glass where you bought it? (I know it was outside of the states, I'm just curious.)

I have not heard much about the use of specific types of glass when users discuss their builds. How has it worked for you? Does the glass produce a better view, or does it have another property you chose it for?

I mad the front and sides crystal glass... Back.. bottom and top regular glass. The price was really good for the size of the tank a little over $300.
Crystal glass is definitely clearer than normal glass... But they are easier to scratch and they are more brittle than normal glass
Sometimes when I clean the front from inside and outside it looks like an open front tank...
I will take more pictures once I'm back home and post an update.
Thanks
