A detailed behind-the-scenes series which explains how I built the 10 Gallon Drip Wall Terrarium. Includes lots of tips, tricks, lessons learned, and secret techniques.
I discuss the tank preparation and setup overview.
You’ll learn how I created the foundation which includes “egg crate grid” structure, mopani wood, and expanding foam.
You’ll learn how I coated the walls with Hygrolon fabric, added more foundation and hardscape, and worked on more driplines.
We finally finish the foundation and hygrolon coating, finish the driplines, and do a system test
I’ll teach you how I made a PVC plumbing assembly to drain into a sump, including some great tips and ideas for your next project.
The final video in the build series, we complete the tank by adding rocks, gravel, and plants.
