Swimmin' with the fishes
Its been a long week/weekend.

Found out one of the braces on the 180 broke off. So that's fun.

Spent 3.5 hours today rinsing sand for the 300. Got a terrible sunburn too. Borderline blistering. But it's all worth it to see this

And my 7'+ monster jungle Val seems to have survived! (For reference, those snails are ping pong ball size)

Nice set up, that's quite a project you have going there. I love the angels, I'm a big fan of them and Severum's. Keep the progress report and pics coming.

Turns out the 180, which is actually a 150 (OOPS can't math) has more problems than I thought. After covering the hole with silicone, it was still leaking. Couldn't figure out why...till I looked at the side panel....

That's two cracks. If I push on it, I can visibly see the seam come apart.

I'm siliconing it for now, but I don't think I'm going to trust it for an extended period of time. Gonna make a nice reptile habitat eventually!

150 is quite a lot of space! I'd keep an Ackie, the one at the shop where I buy frozen mice is "The ackie on crackie" because it just doesn't stop moving!
honestly we'll probably turn it in to a habitat for our ball pythons or there's a legless lizard at a store here. Might get that. or maybe the frilled lizard at the same store.

ok so i have no idea what to do with it. haha but i'll look in to an ackie more
