    I finished it today. Didn't do a build log, I got lazy. Its a 40 gallon breeder with house insulation painted black on the outside, a wood top, ceramic heat emitter, tube light, and a coco-husk/organic potting soil mix. Its a small cat box for his "pond."

    Here is his size now. He just woke up from a 3 week nap.

    And for a comparison, here is him, in the same bowl, the day I brought him home. :p

    Just some acrylic artists paint. It didn't cover all that great, but at least its not blue any more. Notice the insulation is on the OUTSIDE of the tank.

    And how much bigger he will get! Look for him to fill that bowl up by the time he is full grown.

    I'm adding one more in there, but as you see, they are all in pots! He'll just dig them up if I don't.
