To answer your question the top and front would be glass/acrylic. I am still working on almost all of the details. This build is at a minimum 10 months to a year away. I have a lot more research to do before I start construction. The plan would be to build the viv into a “false wall” that also has a 300 gallon reef tank in it.what IS pond armor??? and how would this 3-sided insert be completely sealed??
IMO - I wouldn't do it. Especially if you ever have to move the tank or have a large volume of water in the tank. You can use Sweetwater epoxy (it comes in a few colors). I would hate to have to go through all that hard work to only end up with a leaky, slowly rotting wood box.I'm not trying to threadjack, but I've been planning out a very similar build.
Would several layers of Drylock seal and bond to the wood well? I've never used it and would rather ask than have trial and error with it.
