Sanding done...

Oiling... possibly done
Gonna let it dry for a bit while I eat lunch and determine if I should put another coat on.

Looks like it will be going into service sooner this week than I thought :)

All finished up (for the most part)

Tombo and Moro have been moved into their new homes. All that I have left to do is put their tile in (still haven't got around to cutting it) and finish decorating it up some more. They have a lot more room so lots more room for deco.

It is staying too warm though, even with a room temp of 70~ and only a 50w bulb in both. Top tank is sticking around 85 on the cool end while bottom one is staying around 83. So I will be adding more ventilation to these. And will make sure to do the same with the next set I build.

Here is the whole build in the dragon room.

I'll have to get a pic with the lights off, as the bright lights in the tanks mess with the camera.

Moro on the top

The tile i'm putting in will add a lot for the looks of the tank, right now it looks really antiseptic lol. And I am planning on adding a lot more decor and height to the tanks to bring it all together.

All in all, pleased with the build. But the next one will be much better (as far as learning from my mistakes go lol)

Very nice!
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

Can I ask what size glass you went with height wise? Trying to decide a good viewing height and not sure how tall I want to go.
Came out absolutely stunning btw
