The "walls" are just covered with sealant foam out of a can, I used 2 cans and it was about $15 for the two cans. Just to warn anyone attempting this...it's NOT as easy as you might think. I had a lady help me locally who did her refugium in this manner. You have to wear plastic gloves, and the stuff is so INCREDIBLY sticky that it can be very difficult to work with. However, the results look amazing when covered with coraline! Not to mention Pods are in heaven with all those hiding places. My recommendations is buy an extra can or two and practice on a piece of plexiglass until you get the results you want...then do your tank.
I didn't take any build photos. There wasn't much to it. The tank came pre-drilled and ready to go. I just had the foam done, but I didn't take photos. Then I bought the shelf from Ikea and made my wife stain it...she wasn't happy about doing the staining and I think the camera may have got me injured! I will take more photos as it progresses though!!
