This is my Bastimentos tank 55x40x60 cm.
Built it from concrete plywood and the inside i finished with epoxy. Outside is painted the same style as our furniture because the tank stands in our livingroom.

Nice tank! I have not heard of concrete plywood before. Are you making this product or does it come from a store in sheets like regular plywood?

Yes you can buy it in stores. Maybe you call it different? I don't know?

It is a plywood we use it for constructions, to make concrete walls and floors for example.
But it is also very good material for making terrariums or vivariums .

We have plywood concrete forms. These are made of wood and used to make forms for concrete to be poured into. Does that sound like what you used? So the concrete plywood would by itself not be waterproof but needs the epoxy to make it water proof?

That sounds about it yes.
There are different types of quality and some are more waterproof than others. But with time they all starting to rot. And because the bottom of a vivarium can be quit wet, i threaded it with epoxy to make it last much longer
