    when the pond is filled up, what will the height from the ground to the water level be?

    i ask because not too long ago i hooked up a rena xp1 into my wds enclosure and these filter require certain distances from the top of the filter to the waters surface.

    i am not 100% sure but im pretty sure my filter manual said 24". well that was not doable, and i have it at about 14" and i have to preime the lines every so often or else i will lose its prime.

    i think a pond filter is what you will need if you want to run the waterfalls from it.

    if you can get the fluval to run i would use it for filtering the water only, and get a fountain pump from home depot or lowes and use it to run the waterfall.

    i also use a fountain pump for the misting system for my wd and it works rather well.

    It just amazing the work you have done with this project. It's going to be gorgeous when finished. Wow, I'm speechless, you should do this for a living! No, you can't put a price this type of rewarding work. Can't wait to see the final product.

    Nice Girraffe .. I like the yankee's symbol you made but hate the team .. :) .. In that first set of pictures you can see the Yankee's symbol when I first looked at them I was like "Why is he showing us pictures of his shower .. ?" Lol ! :D:confused::">

    But anyway .. Nice enclosures .. "The Spoiled Water Dragons" !!!

    What did you cover the foam with to protect it? My CWD climbs the walls when hes chasing crickets haha. The grout has protected it well, but makes it weight a ton and gets spendy when your working with large projects like this.

    Also how did you seal the water areas?

    Amazing setup. I thought my CWD was spoiled in his custom home. But that thing is HUGE. haha

    The enclosure looks great so far. Try to grab a few good 'whole" shots that show the entire thing at once.

    You should be able to add more images now. I increased everyones count for images to 250. lol If it still doesn't work, PM me.
