This is great, would love to see how this comes out. I have a question though-- if the tank is going to be in the corner of the room, what's the purpose of the island setup?

"Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep."

The Spawning Pool-- 75g shallow square DECOMMISSIONED

Three Worlds-- 4g triple sphere DECOMMISSIONED

Thank you, I just moved there, and it is currently the only place that I've found, but the proposed island at 360 does not change.

Getting water

The seals of the tank having been much time to dry, it's time to put the water to start preparing the implementation of the various systems that generate the climate, and there to work !



No water leak was found so far.




Next step : System rain creation.

Following soon.

Thanks you

Angles to finish the 24k gold leaf

Initially I wanted to paint the aluminum angle iron bomb "golden" for the golden effect, but in view of the result of said paint (what I expected) it proves to be very disappointing.

So I decided to take one at a corner, the 24 carat gold leaf. The result is now more than appointment.


A little comparison to illustrate my point :



#1 The left stick has not been worked, it is aluminum.
#2 The middle is spray-painted "golden" trade.
#3 And finally the last is plated 24K gold.





Overview angles gilded with 24 carat gold leaf.





Next step : System rain creation.

Following soon.

Your 3D rendering and work on your previous tank was amazing. It was really nice seeing the progression pics, including how you build the entire tank walls yourself! I'm really going to look forwards to see how this turns out

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

Island Paludarium 360 - System Rain Creation

Creating the Climate System - The Rain

Willing to make a most natural plants irrigation, I thought long to a true system of rain "natural" (without the effect of cow pee).
It took me a long time, reflection, and imagination to succeed in developing this system and develop this idea.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfJZrzMztss&hd=1

(To better appreciate the video, do not forget to activate the HD 720p)


It's a little rain falling from the entire ceiling surface, the flow of the drops is ideal
delicately watering the plants and decor, without any washing.





The soundscape so characteristic of the rain is there.
The magic starts at the instant it begins to fall...





Rain water that is used is totally devoid of limestone, splashing on the glass are not dirty, and even clean them.





The mist of foggers is heavier than air, it is usually located at the bottom.
But when the rain is activated, the humidity increases instantly.
Which at effect allow the mist to rise and extend to the entire volume of air from the tank.
Creating a warm, soft, airy and saturated with moisture.





The rain runs randomly "alternate" with other systems that generate climate.

Thus, rain, wind, fog, and waves can therefore sometimes be found in use simultaneously and add up as in nature.





The technical part of the system and its operation remain secret, I will not expose anything more about the rain. There are more than a dozen ways (more or less effective) to realize.
I just imagined a rain that is adapted to the constraints and possibilities of this project.


Next step : Install the sandy beach, followed by gallery lighting LEDs.

Following soon.

Very nice job! I agree however that since the tank is designed for 360 degree viewing it needs to be out in the center of a room somewhere. Seems a shame to waste half the viewing space by sticking it in a corner. Following along to see this one come together.
