Yes, yes he did. That is why I now walk with a limp and cane. I'm hoping that over time I will eventually learn to walk on my own with the prosthetic.

Very nice job so far. Tagging in to follow along, and maybe steal some ideas for my next build.

Glad I found this. The pics are amazing. Are you going to install live plants?

Thank you so much for the compliments everyone! I don't have any updates at this point, the fair has been in town, busy with the kids you know the drill lol.
But I will start again tomorrow and keep you posted.
I am planning live plants but haven't decided at this point what kind. I think that some ground cover moss would look sweet, maybe some type of climbing plant as well.
This whole project has been a learning experience as I go along so everything stock, decor, plants etc. is still up in the air and open for discussion.

You could make this into a really sweet Vietnamese Mossy Frog tank!

I have not updated this build in a long while so here goes...
I have done not a darn thing with it lol
I ran into a problem with the waterfall leaking so the build has been on hold for a while, also I have been trying to figure out how I am going to be creating a drainage layer for the bottom of the tank. I am thinking that I will need to create a false bottom with a piece of plexiglass so the excess moisture will have a place to drain into. But the conundrum that I am running into is how will I get the water out from there? I am thinking that I will somehow need to drill a hole into the bottom side of the tank to run a line into with a pump to drain. Ah what to do what to do.
