Just prepared the side wood panel for fixing up (i.e. the wooden structure that is placed on the stool)

This is how it looked after fixing the side wood panels and the back support to the wall.

This is after placing the fibreglass ponds and cutting the rockwall polystyrene into fitting shape & size. The top fibreglass was also filled with water for testing the flow later.

I started off with the potted land plants first e.g. bird nest fern, palmbob and some others that i'm not even sure of the names.....

The water plants came later.

Will be posting some pictures soon
