Well so far we have the top frame work almost completed and i was gona reframe the bottom as well buuuuuuuuuuuuuut theres a prob i only have so much room for where this HUGE long tank is gona set. and i need light clearance above the tank so as not to burn the cactuses durring winter. I think im gona paint the bottom plastic frame and the top white atleast it will match, under the tank will be 2 heat pads incase the pots feel cold to the touch i can slow lightly heat the bottom so the pots wont be to cold cant afford root rot durring winter. i have enough room on the top for 2 shop light bars but am only gona have 3 lights, 1 GE grow, 1 GE natural daylight and 1 GE blacklight. Durring the day hrs i will have the grow and daylight bulbs on and at night the blacklight will be on for few hrs. The thing about this tank is its over 4 1/2ft long its one of those odd tanks, it has pre drilled tiny holes across the front and back glass on the top and just above the bottom which we used this tnk for raising mice and rats when we had our pet shop, the holes will help with air flow and to keep it dry.. This is the tank so far. Have alot more to do will post pics as i get it done.. I still have to clean it out with CLR and then rinse real well and also get the other shop light on the top.
and this is the counter where it will be sitting, its where the black fans are it will take up the whole counter and leave me with about a inch of space above the top of the lights..
More pics to come soon..
WORK IN PROGRESS!!!!
