I would like to see full frontal shots.... wait that just sounds bad.
But I would like to see some of these tanks as a whole or multi-pictures.
Maybe for the next Viv contest, we can have a description and several pics.

Your right. One picture just cant get it all. These tanks...all tanks require different perspectives to fully enjoy them. That's why they are so nice to just sit in front and look into.

I started with 2 of the smallest strands of ficus and now they have taken over. I have to literaly push them back so they dont cover my other plants.

Hey guys this is a contest for vivs. That hex tank is nice but its a death trap lol. Just kidding, nice tanks everyone. Jhupp that other setup u have is bananas. You'll win the next one hands down if you enter it.

My tank is alot deeper than it looks, there is at least 8 inches of cave(bottom rear)the back gives good cover for making frogs comfy. Tincs love it and they use the branch in the middle as a elevator.

forgot to add,
-the tank has a bulkhead drain under the falsebottom in the rear, draining into a sump under the enclosure.

-Ehiem that filters the water and sends it up to right side, onto a waterfall.

-Misting sytem, that mists 3 times a day.

-exoterra fogger, just for looks, turned on occasionally.

I feel sort of stupid now. I chose that pic because that is from when the tank was at its absolute peak before the rebuild. And didn't post the rebuild because it still has that freshly plant look, or so I thought. ops:

Anyway live and learn. I will besure and enter the rebuild next time.

Also I think more pics of each tank would be very nice addition.

My girlfriends! LOL

All kidding aside it's a Sony DSC-F717 Cyber Shot. I really like it, and because it is her's it didn't cost me a thing. Which of course makes it the best kind of camera: free.

The ones that aren't fully grown in will be real knockouts once the plants take off.

All these tanks are nice and I would have to agree that once a couple of them grow in they are going to be absolutly georgeous. But I believe that #3 is the best of the bunch. You can tell alot of time and planning went into this tank, and the moss growing on the wood sets it off. Great job to everyone, they all are sweet.

Default styles...

there are a lot of different styles. the palidarium looks good with the wood but how deep is the water? i have some redwood branches that are growing moss like that right now, took a year to get them started though, did you make or find/buy yours?

there are a range of styles, for different animals, benjamin is right. there should i think, be a catagory or grouping of tanks. mine is only a week old,
designed for greenback mantella, satanic leaf tails, klemeri and that's not really not shown in the angle. there are two water features, one on the left that falls through the rock where the P. Costa Rica is located and then on the right a stream that is shown plus the water flowing down the front of the rock.

what about having a main photo, and then a small gallery or 300 or 400 sized images? or maybe, front, a flora-lanscape close up and a description?

anyway, all the tanks look good, the one with the face made my kid laugh, she thought it was depicting the tree people from the lord-of-the-rings movie.
