Ok, ok. Pics as promised!
I just put on some of the cogs and gears tonight, and I got the black bottom done. Whatcha guys think???
My plans ahead.
-I have some new plans for the sides, and for 'holders' to look like it's bolted into the table.
-I need to put on the screw-tops to look like the lid's screwed/bolted into place.
-Gonna see if I can monkey with the LED lights to be green, yellow, and blue. Rather than Yellow, Blue, and Red. (which constantly makes the tank look purple.)
-Gonna figure out to put on a device that emits mist or steam. Hard part is it CANNOT heat up so it wont hurt the fish. Or emit chemical vapors. (I was thinking some of the parts from those mist-lamps that atomize water and make it into a fine foggy mist.)
-on the sides will be fine metal tubes, and a fake pressure gage. (Probably stolen off a meat thermometer. Who knows, if I get it right, might actually show the temp of the tankwater!!!)
you can see the glue-hair on the lid, lol. I'll be wiping those off and getting them off so it looks cleaner.
P.S. Sorry for the pic spam D:
