Pics to come tomorrow likely since its night time for them. Even though they are out cause they are mostly nocturnal. I can't get good pics without disturbing them. The green trees will be "out" but hiding in plain sight lol

A big constrictor of some sort. He's not exactly great at IDing snakes, lol. And yeah, it seems every doctor I've ever been to, an most hospital waiting rooms, have a tank of some sort. My inspiration is the tank from early seasons of nip/tuck - huge in wall tank behind the desk with tons of young angelfish. Except mine will be planted and stocked reasonably, lol.

Yeah. I love in wall tanks. Makes it blend into the surrounding and yet pop out. All the tanks at offices are either under stocked or overstocked. Lol

And trust me, I too am terrified of venomous snakes, but pythons and the like just fascinate me. My bf was bitten by a water moccasin as a toddler, and even though he doesn't remember the incident he developed a phobia. Last time he was up close to a snake he passed out. A teacher brought it in to show his science class in high school with no warning, and he was the first desk by the door. He hyperventilated and passed out.
It's been proven that fish tanks in drs. Offices and hospitals help people relax and recover faster. This also goes for therapy animals.

It's usually completely dark and silent. Just the subtle hum of the filters which is no worse than a fan. I have night lights i could use to see everyone but i hardly use them. All the snakes have ceramic heat emitter for warmth so they don't need any lights. I just have some to simulate a light cycle.
