yes, i am really, hopefully, gonna build it. im going to use wood for all of the non tank parts, which includes the base, see above in mini, which will act as storage for food, cleaning stuff, and the dome, which will be the hood housing the lights, and having an access door to make feeding easier. the dome will also lift off for cleaning. im also building the tank itself, out of glass. ill keep updating pics as i do different things, and its going to be alot of planning. im the daughter of 2 carpenters and was always taught measure twice cut once. along with the mini, ill also probably make a life size cardboard model... enjoy!
