Got some new videos up. You all get to FINALLY see the betta 5 gallon tank with my DRIFT-GLASS.

I'm expecting a Drift-Glass piece like the one I have in that tank to cost $15-20. depending on color and size, that specific one is not for sale. If anyone likes it, you can request me to make you some. I will be in the glass studio July 21st to make the pieces so who ever wants some try and get orders in before than. If you don't you can just wait and see what I make then and if you like it, you can get it.

So here is the 5 gallon betta tank with the Drift-Glass in it.

Here is the 20 gallon. The gourami is doing MUCH better:

And ofc another video of my favorite, the 29:

Thank you Lyzza!

I could do absolutely do that! It was actually what I was originally going to do for the first piece but I wanted to get something quick done just to see what it would look like. I can also make it not look soo... transparent :D I would just have to stretch the colors out more. That color pattern would take little bit more time to make so it would cost a little bit more.

This would be the easiest kind of grain to create on the glass:


I can do something like this, but it would take longer:


Although stuff like this is doable, it would be more expensive than worth it in my opinion to get this color pattern on it:


The first two I will try and make something like that on July 21st. I'm going to try and get in the studio then.

I can let you know after I make it. I am going to experiment and try a lot of different combinations so you can choose. I'll price each one accordingly.

How big of a piece would you be interested in? Similar to the one I have, its in a 5 gallon tank. That size and shape with the coloration could be between $25-35 depending on how it comes out. I'll make a few of them with different colors, shapes and sizes.

Would you want it more opaque or translucent like that one?

I just ordered some new color for this and I reserved the slow time for the studio.

I'm going to make some straight sticks as well if anyone wants to do like a custom layout kind of deal.
