    :thanks: I used play sand...a different kind this time. Bought it at an Ace Hardware on sale last fall. It seems extra fine. I hope they like it! With the exception of the molters and diggers, all seem to hang out in the FB so I moved the divider to half of the tank where as before it was only 1/3 FB. The divider is just a strip of plexi glass that I had hubby cut and I used aquarium sealant to secure it in spots at the bottom after bending it around in a semi circle. I crochetted the hammock and second level with the hemp string...Herm EZ gave me the idea of wrapping it around the fake wood thing a year or so back.

    WOW! It looks fantastic!!!! :rockz:

    I need to get the deepclean done of my 40B. I keep putting it off, because I have so many larger ruggies in there. I am afraid to do it, because someone is always dug down. I have never had a rug survive being dug-up during a deep clean, so I am scared.

    I love the idea of the net suspended across the tank to form a sky bridge! That's neat! It's got lots of greenery and hidey spots too! Looks really nice!
     
  10. Fantastic!! Looks really nice!

    How long before they trashed it? HEHEHHE My E's have already dug bombs in the sand!

    :thanks:
    Yeah, I tried aquarium sealant to keep the suction cups up this time because they were always coming down before....but three have come down already. :BangHead: I've got to come up with a better solution...at least for the two ends of the net...that's usually what comes down. Probably from the weight of the hermie huts up there. But they like them there....someone's always in them. They're trashing it again tonight!

    I had trouble with the end suction cups on one of my tanks, what i have put it down to is the humidity in the tank. What i did for that tank was put the suction cups or the stick on hooks on the outside of the tank and just ran some hemp from the net to the suction cup. Since then i havent had a problem with the ends coming down. :hermiefun2: Oh by the way great looking tank. :spunky:

    Thanks for the idea, Hermiefun! I'm going to try that! I was sooo disappointed that the aquarium sealant didn't work after all of my hours of hard work making it look just right. :aargh: There is still hope.
