I just finished planting this today, and figured I would at least get a pic up. I really wanted to make a build log for it, but ran out of time. There's an egg crate box behind the waterfall, so the pump is easy to access and replace should it ever go out. The back wall is three types of Java fern, African ferns, and Pleopeltis percussa up at the top center. On the bottom I have Pellonia repens, Syngonium rayii, ET fern, and Peperomia rotundifolia, with lots of Salvinia and some Java moss in the waterfall. I'll have to get a video of it later to actually show the water running, it looks pretty neat.

Do you set up new tanks for him to sell or are these to show people how to do it? If he has room a couple nice big show tanks is a nice tool to help sell stuff.

We have two stands that are 2 shelves high, 3 feet wide, with room on the bottom shelf for 24" tall vivariums, and the top shelf holds 18" vivariums. I'm currently working on another cork and great stuff vivarium with a drip wall and a cork "tree" in the center for a bottom shelf, and then we're doing a 2'x18"x3' Exo with manzanita and a great stuff drip wall for over by the cash register. We may eventually do smaller ones to sell, but mostly we have customers place custom orders so they get what they want and I can tailor it towards the animal. My rule so far on the display tanks is that the materials either have to be found at the store, or at Home Depot, so people can easily replicate the look if they want without having to search around too much.
