Background for my 5ft tank
I'm making a BG for my 5ft which will eventually house some cichlids...It is in the tank waiting but i thought i'd catch you up to where it is now, for those interested anyway lol
Spray foam added
In tank to check size
1st layer of render
2nd layer of render
3rd layer of render
Siliconed in ready for joins to be rendered
Now, a lesson learned, write down your oxide/render/water ratios. I had to do a new batch up and cover quite a bit of the BG as i couldnt get the colour to match to my satisfaction.
So joins are now done and it will be detailed tonight (and a new pic), then it needs to sit until the sealer comes back into stock.
So stay tuned for more updates
Hi Alasse, welcome to TFK... i really like the BG... its very cool :)
hello and warm welcome
i look forward to seeing how this goes :-D
This is an awesome project! Thanks for sharing your progress with us - I can't WAIT to see the next step(s) and watch it go into a tank!!! Please keep us posted - and welcome to TFK! ^__^
On the home stretch now!! Waiting to be sealed (excuse reflections on glass)
Excellent project thanks for posting. I love seeing pics of diy projects, even though I'm not talented enough to even attempt craftwork like that.
Hope you enjoy the forum.
I so wanna seal this, but i need help to carry it outside (fumes not good, for human, furkids, and finkids) so i need to wait til my hubby is home :(
hope he won't be too long thenů.i really don't like waiting for people
when i want to do something.
I've waited this long a bit longer wont kill me lol
Good things come to those who wait so they say :)
Looks real good,it is all coming together rather nice.I agree about the patience in the hobby...and in life.
I look forward to seeing it wet.
