Malaysian driftwood, my first time using it. My usual wood choice is manzanita. I always suggest using manzanita because that sh*t really holds up in the vivarium's wet conditions.

Some more foam added to the background, adding hygrolon when I'm satisfied with the texture.

So I can't figure out how to embed my images from my phone so I uploaded it differently this time. I'll start adding the links and attaching the images from now on if I remember.

I really like how you attached the driftwood pieces together! Thanks for sharing your build. I'm looking forward to checking out your progress on this tank! Nice work!

I played around with the layout for a few hours then finally decided. I also decided to put the substrate in before foaming because it makes it so much easier to clean up the bits of foam that drip off. Just pick it up easy when it dries lol.

Is that just a siliconed drape of hygrolon on the back wall? If so, that is a pretty great idea. I have never thought of that. It just gives plants a leg up by giving them something to bite into with their roots. Super simple and easy. I like it!

Basically... I just cut two pieces to fit the corners and I used stripes of gorilla glue to secure it to the glass. Then I cut pieces to fit over the foam and used gorilla glue + the toothpicks to keep it on there.

It's a bag from glass box tropicals. It's pre dried and ready to dump into your tank.

I swear this is it for today&#x1f92a; I moved the ferns off the wood down into the substrate and I am finally happy with the look. Now don't let me start moving plants around again unless my orchid starts dying, then it's going back to it's original home... a fiji water bottle &#x1f602;
