Well I have gotten the ducted work in, I used hot glue and it is holding great.
I also got the glass in and sealed, it looks much better now.
I'm now trying to finish up the cabinet, and I have to make the doors.
Just need to start saving back more money!LOL

The guy that made that log, has made lots of different backgrounds.
I think you can contact him from this link, http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/members/hx.html.
Here is a thread that tells a lot about building these, http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/par...tructed-6.html. If you can't find out what you want, ask on that same forum there are lots of users that make similar backgrounds.
This website a lot on backgrounds too, http://jyrkiboy.aqua-web.org/index.html
I really recommended you build one yourself, there not as hard to make as you think, and it's a lot of fun!!!

Sorry, I have been working so much, I haven't had time to work on it.
I did get some work on the AC/heating done. For duct work I am using vinyl board, that is used for fence. It was just the right size for my heater core, which I got new on Ebay for $2.00+$6.00 for shipping, you can't beat that!
I will have a cooler under the viv stand, which I will fill with hot or cold water (depending on the time of year). Then more water will be run through a coil of tubing, that will sit in the hot/cold water, this water will then run through the heat exchange. Some fans will push air through the exchange and into the viv.
This should give the frogs a perfect temp all the time!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while I have been doing a lot of work on the background, and I think it is done!!!!!!!
The side view.
I decided to use up the rest of the grout, and put a rock front on the ledge.
I get a very nice texture on the rock, do to misting it with water while it was still wet, so the water ran down the face giving a weathered look.

I got the background panels fished and installed, and if I may say so they look rather good!

|driftwoodhunter||Hey, that's really neat! I think it came out fantastic. The tip about the grain mill is one I haven't seen before either|

I got the larger of the two backgrounds done today!
I used the same silicone mix, but instead of 100% peat it is 3 parts ground sphagnum and 2 parts peat, this gives it a lighter color.
Here are the backgrounds in the viv for a test fit.
I have found the best thing to grind moss, charcoal and about anything else really fine is a grain mill, it works great!
Here it is half done.
This is the finished product!

Thanks! I will post more pics tonight.
I was going to ask you, do you have any Jova moss for sale?

Now I am just waiting for it to dry.
I used a lot more grout on the bottom because that is where the water feature will run out. Now here are the pics!
Here is the background after a little carving.
The start of grouting.
I put in a piece of 1/2" CPVC pipe that runs out the back, that the water pump will hookup to.
I then cut up a straw and placed it along the front. then I put grout over them.
Once the grout was firm I removed the straws, which left a nice opening for the water to flow, and completely hiding the pipe.
Were it is with all the grout done, (it is still a little green) and the second one is for the other wall.
Should I seal the lower grout were the water runs, or is it okay?
