    Whatever is used to seal pools would work. A poly may actually work if several coats were applied.

    West system's marine epoxy. It dries non-toxic and is used on boats so its totally water proof.

    Ok here we go did a little work on the vivs and was able to seperate the tanks and start on the pond forms and base Well I'm trying to take my time and do it right those openings on the bottom are going to have access for my piping and all the goodies you can see in the viv but not the wiring. I will post more as soon as I get a litle more done.

    Do you mean to shine light on the pond itself or to put in the water to light it from beneath?

    Hey I was going to polyurithan to seal the wood before putting the insalation board does it have to be water based it will have enough time to air out the dragons won't be in them for a couple of weeks.

    I prefer the water based poly. The oil based will take much longer to cure out.

    It is turning out very nice so far. Lots of hard work put in it.

    Search Results for led

    Some of those are ready-to-use underwater LED lights. Single LEDs you might have to assemble yourself....

    i have a question about the fluval filter you think that will have enough power to supply water to both ponds? I was thinking of using the filter to push the water out thru water falls in each tank do you think it will work?
