What substrate were you using? If you don't have leaf litter, you might just want to order some ABG mix from Josh's Frogs or GlassBoxTropicals and just get some leaf litter that is ready to go there.
It is forest Spagna moss, coco fiber, and repti bark. And the drainage layer is about 2 inches of clay balls. There is a tube already it’s just hidden. Also took all the old wood out and put in some Malaysian driftwood/ cork. And added leaf litter. Currently have the mister off and picked out all the mold I seen in the substrate. Laid the leaf litter over the top and we’ll see how it goes. The tank has really dried out the substrate is still damp but the plants need that to thrive right??
