painted a few layers of castle waterproofing film..
too bad, it only came with one color, white..

exterior ashlar stones almost finished..
now for the hard part.. putting the stones on the top part..




July 2, 2013
a few hours of staring.. i finally thought of an idea how to attach the stones on top..

made wood support for the stones to rest while the concrete epoxy hardens..


other side


close up front


yey!.. now have to be paitient and give 96 hours for the concrete epoxy to harden..

hope nothing goes wrong with the leak test..
so far, no glass bending..

the ashlar stones on top is doing a good job supporting the glass

That's One intense tank!! And if you ever decide, to stop keeping tanks you could use that stand to support collectible cars

hahaha.. i doubt the collectible cars..
the weight is staggering..

bottomslab - 300kg
side slab 1 - 60kg
side slab 2 - 60kg
12mm glass panels - 16kg
100gal water - 400kg
33 pcs ashlar stones - 60kg
canopy - 15kg
16 gal sump water - 60kg

950 kg+ already
without the hardscapes and substrates..
hehe.. im glad i made sure the stand could withstand 1000kg+ weight

-----------

- leak test has passed the 16hr test.. 56hrs to go...
looking good..

More pictures!!!!

ill post pics soon..

with the lights, sadly i cant find any T5HO here at my place..
so i would be using normal T5, the 6700k ones and the blue ones..

Co2, since im currently low budget, ill be using DIY co2...

substrate..
again, ada products is nowhere to be found at my place, and had to be ordered and ship far away, which i currently cant afford the price..

so, i will be experimenting with top soil, lots of tiny pebble like gravel from a nearby river..

it's my first time on planted tank, so, all of this is are hit or miss..
and alot of trial and error...

Gosh, and I thought my 75g slate bottom tank was heavy!

What's going in it or did I miss that?
