Aquatic background glued in


Now that all the water stuff has been built and tested, I emptied the paludarium again. High time to start working on the backgrounds and waterfall.



The Aquatic background

It makes sense to start with the aquatic background, as I bought this background and do not plan on building it myself. As the paludarium will be amazonian, I choose the amazonian version from Akwaline, and after glueing it in it looks like this:

I decided to align the background to the right (as I look straight into the right side of the paludarium as well. So the right side is glued directly against the glass:

The left side has a space of +-2cm. This space is filled with a piece of mosquito net:

Luckily everything was measured correctly when ordering all stuff. The external filter feed-through fits nicely in front of the aquatic background:
