My Madagascar Inspired Mantella Paludarium

i decided to move this build journal over to this thread since it is for frogs. to see the beginning of the build, you can go here :
Madagascar inspired Mantella tank

this is going to be a quickie update. after 2 days of foaming, adjusting, adding my diy rain system, i am finally complete the "construction phase" of this project. the vinyl tubing you see in the pics are for my rain system. basically, it's a hydroponics irrigation system that runs off of a pond pump that i modified to work for me. they will eventually be covered in silicone/coco fiber to look like vines. i do have pics of how the rain system works, if anyone wants, i will post them on request.

here's where we are at, after all the foaming is done and curing. i'll start covering the background in a few days

sorry the pics aren't better, but i've been working one this sucker the past 4 nights straight and i am whooped!!
