    this one took about 20 hours over about 5 days to make cos there is so much detail i made another one after this that only took about 10 hours to do i would like to make them and earn some money but there is not too much of a market for them....my local tobbacconist loves his trains he is a big kid i recently made him a big scenery 2400mm long x 1200mm wide with a waterfall lake mountains and bridges...it turned out pretty nice he ended paying me $15 an hour so i got just over $400 for it he is very happy with it and is trying to promote my work to get me some business so fingers crossed...

    a couple of quick shots. A bit too much moisture in there at the moment. The misting system decided to empty itself in there the other day. P1010070.jpg P1010071.jpg
    sorry for the crappy shots

    Wow, nice looking enclosures! Looking forward to getting one put together for mine! It'll be a while though since he/she is so small at the moment.

    This is one of my CTS set ups, it's for my juvenile black phase.
    I have had to add a 2nd container for feeding as she has a hunting method of slowly coiling around the fish so they cannot get away easily, this only works for her in water <4cm deep.
