    What is going to be the water feature.
    I have sponges and filter floss throughout, partially to help with shape, but also so water can drain through, as the pump is overkill!

    I haven't forgotten!
    Just super busy with work.
    Apparently every single dwelling in waterloo region, except mine, has bedbugs...

    I have my mopani. I have my plants started.
    Waiting to get more foam tomorrow and hopefully have it essentially set up, by the end of March!

    I do have a question, though...

    Do y'all think I'll need a lid, or should I be alright?
    There's a water feature, there's gonna be a fogger. It'll be misted daily and it's gonna be... Well... Boggy!

    I thought I posted the hardscape, but I guess I didn't!
    I got that started! 20190228_233208.jpg 20190228_233208.jpg

    Nice!

    For me, a lid is important to build up the humidity.
    At least a partial lid.

    Foam is almost done and my frame is in place!

    Gonna give it 2 days to cure, then, it's onto the most amazing and fun part;
    Silicone and peat moss, FFS...

    Not stoked. Not stoked at all...

    (As some of you may notice, I removed the section on the right. It wasn't working out as well as I had intended and it also made the tank cluttered!

    I may end up making a small 'island', around the base of the mopani that rests on the bottom of the tank, though!)

    Almost finished with the background. Now I'm pretty much just waiting on funds!
