I made some good headway on the tank in the last couple of days. I have got a good first layer of Drylok and was able to play with some color variations. I think I will be able to get some nice colors but putting the layers around the root system is proving difficult. Drylok is like a thick paint and is not easily brushed on with significant detail. My next layer will be the main coat of Drylok and give me the main coloration for the hardscape.

I am happy overall with the look, I am however a bit worried about the planters and how well they're going to work for the terrestrial plants. Watering them may bring about some issues. We'll see.

Forgive the sloppy look, this is just the first coat, but whaddya think? I am open to sugesstions and advice as always!
