I wanted to post some pictures of the 30g vivarium I created. The tank is an Oceanic 30 cube. The stand is an IKEA table with the casters cut off, which works really well for $50. The canopy was made by me and contains 1 x 40w power compact light, and there is a spot for a fan but right now it doesn't seem to need it, there is room for a tiny 50w heater in the false bottom, is there any problem with me putting a tiny heater in the water under the false bottom? It doesn't house any frogs at this point in time. Any other suggestions?
I really like that waterfall and pond. What kinda plant is that on the cork bark?
Are those broms placed in the substrate or mounted on something on the ground? If they are directly in the substrate, I would move them up since they tend to rot if exposed to too much moisture. The heater at the bottom of your tank should be okay as long as theres enough water there.
Oh yea, nice job on the carpentry for the conopy btw.
The bromeliads are all stuck into the background and the ones that are very close to the substrate have pieces of corkbark underneath them to push them up off the wet substrate. The N. Little Faith is my favorite of the broms.
The plant on the cork bark is Rhipsalis sp., I have been meaning to add some sphagnum moss around the top of the cutting to help hold in a little more moisture, but it is starting to grow with the daily misting. It is also hard to see but at the bottom of the cork bark I planted a vine Cissus amazonica which will hopefully grow up the right side.
I will try adding the heater and see how it goes, I have about 2 inches of water at the bottom.
