My 215G Custom

Post by emberfusion » Mon Jul 03, 2017 11:23 am

I'm forever working on decorations, but I thought it might be time to post a few pics.

::RANDOM TAT DETAILS::
- Sub is 5:1 with a shallow layer of EE on top that has a bit of crushed shells randomly thrown around.
- Sub is ~15-18 inches deep (slight slope going from 15 in front to 18 in back).
- There's a bubbler in my saltwater pool. (& I LOVE my pools)
- I made the bridge from the obnoxious amount of driftwood I had laying around and strung some plastic vines through it to make it look cooler.
- Shell shop is a piece of plywood screwed to 2x4 legs - plywood is wrapped in cork. Massive piece of driftwood on top of there for a little privacy.
- There's a moss pit built back into the foam wall (I used a little plexi box I found for it) & is under the shell shop.
- I tossed in some succulents that the crabs don't seem to bother.
- Temp & humidity are stable in the mid-upper 80s.
- I still need to do a little work on the outside of the tat for ~aesthetic~ purposes.
- These pics were not all taken on the same day.
