    Well, been working practically non stop. Got everything finished except for the walnut doors for the storage area. They'll have to wait. Grow out area is now a priority since emerging froglets are looking rather frisky. Ready to move tads into trolley. I can't imagine ever having enough tads to fill it but since there is plans in the works for another 6 vivs I guess it's certainly possible. Other than a couple of mishaps, namely breaking the corner off the 40"x24" piece of 5 mil glass whilst securing the walnut sash... Some nasty words were probably heard coming from the shop for blocks around. Had to order a new piece for the top, but was able to make lemonade with the broken piece and decided that since there was actually room for a 4th level of drawers and I now had some extra glass....anyhoo, quite happy with how it turned out.
    I must say that building it while posting updates to the thread was quite enjoyable. Thanks to all who've been watching and posting encouraging comments. You have certainly been a positive addition to the building process.

    With all the lit glass, it's going to be a finger print nightmare.

    View through the top. Going to be so much nicer watching/feeding/cleaning tads, having been on my hands and knees before.

    Not sure yet if we'll need much heat, if any. With the emitter hooked into the dimmer switch it will be simple to control.

    It is going to open up a lot of space other places when we add all of our frog related paraphernalia into the spacious storage area.
    Can't wait to move the tads in....I'll post some pics shortly.

    Sure is a nice working height. So much easier for observation.

    Nice!
    Must have cleared out the dollar store for the cups!
    I hope the employees had the same look on their faces as when I went in and bought 75 "floating pond ducks" AKA super cheap and awesome decoys! Muhahahahahaha!
