There they are. Not sure why it didn't work in the other post. Couldn't even edit them in.

Sorry, but I didn't do any painting tonight. Went to see The Avengers with some people I went to high school with and haven't seen for a long time. However, I did pick up some silicone to make the rock structures I want in the tank.

Pretty much done!

What do you think? Tomorrow it gets sand and goes into place!

I wanted the words and vines to be kind of hidden, and it came out pretty well. You'll look at it and just see green, then the vines and runes kind of pop out at you. It doesn't photograph so well, at least with the crappy iPad camera. When I find my digital camera I'll take a quality picture.

Beautiful job on this tank, I can see the dog or wolf face in it that the others see, looks as if it is coming out of a cloud. Don't know if that effect was intentional or not but it is cool looking.

Not intentional, but now I see it too! Neat. I picked up some black diamond blasting sand for it today, which is going to be mixed with the other black sand from the tank it is replacing. I was planning to get it all moved in today, but I ended up helping a friend pack her over abundance of heavy antique wood furniture into a moving truck today, and now I am too tired and sore to do much of anything especially anything involving heavy lifting. That 40 lb bag of sand is not going anywhere tonight, and there's no way I'm moving that much water around. However, tomorrow marks a week of owning the tank itself, so I think I have made pretty good progress with it so far.
