    Sounds good Barracuda. I definitely want to try something like this in the near future. I know everything will work out great for you and your new terrarium!

    Ok so far we got the uplift tray cut to size, the top of the tank trimed down so that theres a lip still on it to hold things and also got the uplift holder built, now all we gota do is figure out where i am placing the plants and cut holes for the plant pots to sit half way in them. Also i didnt get the uplift panel to be higher on one side so im just gona build one side higher with moss and orchid chips when the time comes. Now its "not sitting square" in the pic we just fliped the tank upside down and placed the uplift panel and holder on it to see how it looked and also to see how much weight it can hold i placed a heavy 8 pound plant pot on one end and another wood thingy thats 5 pounds on the other end then after this pic was taken we put a 8 pound block in the middle twards the back so roughly 20 to 22 pounds i belive it will hold and then some. Now once JR gets the plant pot holes done and we place it all in the tank i will get another pic of it. You can kinda make out on the right hand front corner where we put a small hole for a PVC pipe to go for me to pour fresh water thru, im also thinking of adding a tiny underwater filter to keep the water fresh under the plate other than having charcol and perlite in the water. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] I will just use charcol and have the tiny filter going.
    Anyways sorry for the blurry pic but as i stated it gives ya a idea as to what we are doing.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Ok time for a update, i have gotting my fogger, also one of the fountains i had orderd which came in broken so i called the company, they didnt have anymore like the one i got so the woman on the phone told me she could send me another thats 2 inches bigger and alittle diffrent and even though it was more expensive they would send it to replace the broken one. Hey not a prob and i got 2 for the price of one due to i fixed the broken one.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Now few things left to get yet as i keep seeing things that would go nicely in this terrarium, JR is gona work on a light canopy for it but its gona take some doing since this tank is oddly shaped but it will get done the week of Jan. 3rd. and find a tiny fan to fit into the canopy. Just when i though i had everything i needed well it always ends up needing something else.. Slowly ever so slowly we are getting there, JR and everyone keeps reasuring me even though its taking forever it will be nice once done due to im not rushing it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img] When progress beings again on this i will be taking lots more pics to share as to how it gets all put together. Heres few pics of the fountain that got broken and the other one thats due tomarrow. Im debating on which one to use.

    One that was broken, the base was completely broken in half and one of the lilly pads was broken off and also a tiny flower was broken it has a tiny pin hole in the rock wall i had to find and silicone it, wasnt easy fixing it but i did.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    broken,

    now fixed and running sorry its blurry.


    and then this is the one thats commin in, its got few lilly pads, frogs to and also what looks like a tree branch or log on the side.


    This terrarium is gona look SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET when done...
