Gardening With Little Space

I know for many people, myself included, that the dream of having a huge fancy garden probably isn't in the near future due to the lack of space. Now that doesn't mean that you can't have a garden at all. There are many options for people such as raised beds, container gardening, or the vertical garden which is becoming more and more popular especially for people with apartments. I've even been able to run an aquaponics system in an apartment successfully.

Creating A Themed Show Tank Part 2

In the first post about this project i showed you the tank and the basic layout that i will be going for overall. But before we can start to build it we must first tear it down to bare bones and create this piece of art from the ground up!

This starts with the removal of the existing panes of glass so that the frame can be prepped for painting and reassembling.

Originally i thought that this tank still had its slate bottom in it as i had only really seen it in the dark and to my surprise i found that it did not it actually has a pebble glass pane for the bottom of it.
