@GOSKN5

Top one is the Begonia rex (if im correct)
Bottom one is Gynura aurantiaca

@d_mill24

I've got an automatic system that provides the tank every 3 hours or so with a minute of fine mist.
And if its needed i'll manually mist some of the broms and/or spaces the nozzles can't reach.

Love the look of this viv. The plants are awesome. I just set up a 29g a few weeks ago but I'm thinking of redoing in in a 40b.

Looks awesome, so fun seeing them grow in and how the whole viv changes. Wish I could have some Leucs. Always loved their look. Just don't think I could do the loud call at my place.

The frogs do have a loud call.. but its not as loud to be honest.
Its roughly the same as a canary or something..
Enjoyable and subtle.
But if the frogs are sitting on my vent screen in the front it is a bit louder.

But i've kept E. Anthonyi before my leucs and they were really loud.
So loud i could here them outside my house.
But if you don't want any calling frogs its best to avoid these frogs

The call is one reason we selected leucs... mine are little so not calling yet but I can't wait...

Excellent photos! That last closeup is incredible. Forgive me if you've already mentioned it; what camera are you using?

Such a beautiful home for your frogs! Even with how common they are, Leucs are still my favorite for many reasons, I love them! Is your Ficus from Home Depot/Lowes? I saw some there that looks similar as well as the same species Selaginella that Glass Box sells but was nervous about getting them. For one, I am not sure how my propegating skills are and was afraid I would just kill them when I try to grow out some clippings from them and second I was worried about pesticides.

Thanks!

I got the ficus (as most of my plants) from local breeders and/or other dartfrog keepers around here.
So i wasn't very afraid it would contain pesticides etc.
I would give it a go if i were you, imo the ficus is one of the most easier plants.
(maybe try to get it from another dartkeeper near you so you know its clean and safe)
As long as it has place/space to root itself on a background.
Its growing very well since the beginning and i really need to trim it every 2 weeks or else the tank will be overgrown.

And a small update on the tank.

I wanted to get extra frogs to stop the agression.... atm the agression is gone, so thats a good thing.
(still planning to add more though)

But i've got other things to fix first.
I'm dealing with an HUGE snail infestation which bothers me alot.
In every picture you can see small snails... and its just ugly.. like algea in a fishtank.

So far i've tried a piece of lettuce at night in the tank (works the best atm)
A piece of banana of other fruit didn't really work (not as much as the lettuce)
And (this may be a dumb one..) but beer.... in the greenhouse this works like a charm for the snails.
I've had small tubes that i filled with beer and pushed in the substrate, of course so small that the frogs couldn't do anything with it.
But that didn't work at all.

So im sticking to the lettuce for now.
I've read here that a dry ice method could work.. but its a little hard to get hold of here.
And the last resort is to fully tear down the tank and clean everything.
Some pieces of the background are starting to come loose..... so maybe in the future that would be an option.

And i had 2 rotting bromeliads unfortunately.
I've pinned them right into the background and by doing that the roots were probably getting a little wet and starting to rot.
Maybe i'll tie a bromeliad to the large piece of wood in the right.. but i won't be pinning them into the background again.

A thing i had to learn the hard way... maybe pin some sort of plant cup in the background and put it in there...

Anyway the tank is far from being perfect but its getting there
