It is like furniture
I bought it after talking a LFS owner into selling it for a mere hundred dollars some 20 years ago. It was designed for reptiles and I waterproofed it as it leaked like a sieve originally. All the wiring (for the most part) was dadoed into the vertical stiles of the unit. Each tank has a 1/8 inch hardware cloth installed. Tonight I cut the plex to seal them off. As far as the soil goes I pushed some aside in each tank so that I will be able t drain when I get home. I may need to also add dry soil. I think I got one out of three right .....LOL
Quite moist but zero standing water. I can see this is a flaw in doing it this way but expect to overcome that small challenge with some 2.5 PVC cut to 3" lengths & placed near a front corner. This will be my indicator, I'll put a few saw kerfs on the bottom side to allow water to collect & drain from there.
That is a nice setup you have. Looks like furniture rather than my metal rack nice tank dimensions I have never seen tanks that size before. Are they custom made or for reptiles? Getting An Awesome ROAK from asukawashere thank you again)& another paid plant package from Gordon with extras
. Should have them in a day or so. I also have my dividers ready but will post that when I get to it. This is fun project that will not take alot of effort.
Also the soil is definitely too wet. The plants would likely have trouble with fungus.
