Great looking tank. I also like that little wooden frog figure that you have sitting in front of the tank. If I'm not mistaken, you use that stick to run along its back to make a croaking sound...

That looks great! I'm in the middle of 2 40 breeder builds for bassleri/pepperi. I think I might skip building a complete background. Not sure yet. Yours looks very good!!!

Just have to say this... those croaking frog toys are so annoying!! Lol. My tables at Daytona were right next to the vendor selling him. He had his two kids sitting there playing with literally all day every day non stop. I wanted to poke my ears out by Sunday haha!

Is it to save money or for space. I actually saved a bit by not using silicone on the glass, I just applied the g/s straight to the glass and used contact paper on the side, I also saved by using the g/s big gap filler on clearance for 1.70.

lol yeah the wooden frog gets pretty annoying.
