Default Unplanned house repairs :-(

So my wife and I had come to an agreement. I could start working on the preparation for my next (second) dart frog tank what we replace one of our basement walls with fresh drywall (see picture below of the original wall). Unfortunately when I took the wall off, I found that the backer board had been wet at one point. So I took the board off and there is a crack in the foundation :-(.

All in all, probably happy to know about it rather than not knowing. I'm trying to line up contractors to come give a quote.

Happy dance, the issue isn't structural :-), my day frog vivarium plans aren't going to be completely messed up.

That's good. Foundation repairs just don't have the same appeal as remodeling the kitchen, do they? What are your second tank plans so far?

I'm working on rehousing my crested geckos into a 12"*18"*36" tall tank (they love the climbing around area in nut experience) so I can use their 18"*18"*24" exo terra tank for darts.

I'm trying to narrow down my "wish list" and then go from there

The wish list currently is:
D. Tinctorius "citronella"
D. Tinctorius azureas
D. Tinctorius "Cobalt"
P. Vittatus (probably the ones I want most)
D. Leucomelas
A. Bassleri (out of my price range for now, and would need more space than my tank from what I've read)

The goal is a more heavily planted tank, with multiple levels so that all the space gets used.

Bassleris are appealing frogs to me, too. I like several frogs in the Ameerega genus, and I think I'd have a hard time settling on only one. What is it about the vitattus that pushes them to the top of your list? What kinds of plants do you think you'll be using?

I love the v pattern and the black and orange stripe.

I'm planning a few broms, and then some other plants to be determined still.
