Man! There are a ton of fantastic looking vivariums on here!
This will be my third vivarium. Though, I haven't posted the other two on here.
The vivarium in question is an 18x21x31 50 gallon column. It is to feature a recreation of the planet Endor, or California redwoods depending on how you see things.
There will be 5 "trees" made of 3/4 PVC that reach near the top of the vivarium, and will host epiphytic plants to hang down. The main feature being a canopy. Cork bark will be attached to the pvc via silicone or
"mud", followed by many vines. There will also be cork bark "platforms" and "bridges" to the different platforms surrounding different levels of the "trees". I was going to add cocohuts for a more ewok-esque feel, but they are too big to utilize properly, so instead I will silicone some film canisters onto the PVC by the platforms. The ground floor will be covered in moss and ferns, etc.
There will also be a few decorations that may include a funeral pyre made of twigs and lego Star Wars characters. Deal with it.
Oh yeah, and the fauna. It will be featuring 9 R. Variabilis.
Lighting is still uncertain. I had been considering one of those 10-20W LED floodlights everyone is raving about.
Not the final positions of the wood, and there will probably be more as well.
