I finally got my aquraium. Yesterday I went with the 55 gallon tank instead of the 150 gallon. It was too overwhelming and too heavy. And I thought since MikeM670 have constructed a 55 gallon Viv. and posted the steps he took I could use his post for a reference.
I cleaned the tank for 8 hours off and on trying to get the calcium build up off. Might have to get some CLR to clean up the rest of the calcuim.
On Thursday I will be buying the first part of my build. I would go get it sooner but it is a hour and half drive to the closest store. (I live out in the mmiddle of Nowhere).
Here are a couple of pictures of the tank I will keep posting When I start the build.
I do have a question. Have anyone ever used a tank water heater to heat and add humidity to there Viv.

Now with all the humidity and watering, I have good amount of water falling in the drainage bottom. The heat pad helps evaporate the water, thus creating more humidity but also, getting rid of the excess water...
As for heating, yes. But I have mine on a timer. It's a 15w heating cable, but it can heat pretty well.
