Good news! Looks like my big order should get here tomorrow. Might have some more significant updates over the weekend.

Right now, I'm thinking that a group of Ranitomeya variabilis would be a good fit for the terrarium I'm putting together. The Southern "morph" is my initial preference, but I'm pretty partial to all of them that I've seen. Feel free to try and change my mind or just keep that in mind while you watch the build come together.

Only real progress at this point is taping/marking to prepare for some more glass drilling tomorrow. Installing a bulkhead and two MistKing nozzles. (Picture below.)

I'm a little torn on the bulkhead placement, but I want it as low as possible and as far towards the front as possible. The squares on the picture represent option #1 and #2; #1 is my preference, but #2 seems like the better option. At least w/ #2 I have reasonable distance from the edge on all but the bottom. Probably just gonna make a "game time" decision on that one.

A quick question however: I'm planning on covering the bottom 5" of the terrarium in black contact paper. It seems like the bulkhead should be pretty reliable, but do you think I should leave a portion uncovered so that I can monitor the water level?
