    The area above the tank, did you add a rocky background? Also can you describe the glass? I think I see a key lock and am guessing the glass panel slides.

    Hi,

    The area above the tank has a own made background. I used styrofoam plates and sprayed some PUR foam on it. Later I used Elastopur mixed with a brown color pigment. After that I have covered the background with peatfibers.

    The glass panels in the section above water has 4 sliding glasses. Two of them has a hole in it, just for easy sliding.
