Started welding this past weekend, I got the platform to weld with the refugium wall and sanded down the edges to be flush with the wall of the tank.

This is the wall and platform initally, the platform is all sanded down because i wanted to get my thumb print out of the bottom of the platform. I also sanded some additional areas to make it look semi-uniform. It should all be clear when the tank is filled though.

Quick rinse, this is what it looks like, around 3 inches off the bottom, going to fill it with sand later so there will be a area of soft sand for the puffer

The whole tank thus far.

Started sanding down the side, I painted it to make it look frosted when I painted the back of the tank. Turns out clear acrylic paint doesnt settle evenly and the frosty effect failed. I have no idea what this paint will do when submerged in water so im sanding it out since this side will be in the betta tank. This stuff is tough, took me 2 hrs of hard sanding alternating between 120 grit and 400 grit wer/dry to get around 33% of it out.


Will be working on more sanding of the side and shaving/sanding the edges of the cut 1.5g. Lots of sandpaper in this project
