I have been away from the forum for a while, but I wanted to share some pics of my latest build. I like to call it my "steam punk tank", because it was inspired by the steam punk movement. It fascinates me, but some design changes took the true steam punk nature out of the equation, so I am going with industrial themed. Lol
I haven't decided on inhabitants yet, but I will on Sunday when I go to the White Plains Reptile Expo. Surely, there will be something there I like here are the pics, hope you enjoy
Thanks!! I had planned on some gears, but couldn't find any Victorian era ones that were economical enough to clear coat and place in there. The ones I found were ridiculously priced. I still have to build an air circulation system for it, but I'm in no rush, any frogs I get for it will be quarantined for at least 30 days, so I have time.
Absolutely. They all got 10 (I think, I lost count after 7) coats of krylon fusion clear. Although I did get 4 coats in when I realized I needed to drill the holes for the mist and clear coat those as well. Always a learning curve lol
I picked up the permanent residents for the tank on Sunday. 4 mantella baroni. I let them have a quick tour in the tank while I set their qt tank up. Then spent an hour catching them again to go into qt. I HATE seeing frogs in those little deli cups, but also know it's a necessity for shows.
