Default "The Office"

This thread will be covering the build of two 18x18x24 Exo-Terra tanks that will live within my office.

In the future they house the following: (est. July 19')
- Dendrobates Tinctorius Azureus
- Dendrobates Tinctorius Green Sipaliwini

The builds main components will consist of the following:
- (2) 18"x18'X24" Exo-Terra Tanks
- (2) Spectral Designs 16" x 12" LED Lights
- Spectral Controller and Driver
- MistKing System

The plan is to create the tanks so they have a large available floor space, tanks will be drilled for drainage and glass tops will be added. They will be viewed mostly from the front, attempting to make them look like the same landscape carries between the two.

Thanks for taking a look and following along.

I really like the idea of carrying the landscape through both enclosures. Looks Great!

Had a little time to work on the project over the weekend.

Drilled the glass for the drain bulkheads:

Made small strainers for the drain hoses, will sit in the front area covered in a drainage layer. Accessible if needed.

Placed the net pots and drainage tubes and put the first foam in tank #1:

Hope to have time to shave down foam and work more on tank #1 this week.

Have a great week.

Man wish I could have my frogs at my work. Were only allowed small neatly maintained live plants. 😠
