Default Latest project

OK, heres my progress with this viv-the permanent and much larger home for my Epipedobates hahneli group.

So far I have fitted the cocofibre panel background, along with the water filter/pump and an aquarium heater, and filled with leca ( a very high level to ensure the high level of water required for the filter and heater)
Half buried in the leca is a hollow and rather mossy cork bark tree stump type thing. This has a fern planted inside it, and will probably also provide a place for other plants to colonise. I intend to affix a number of small bromeliads to the top of this cork bark structure.

A length of rubber tubing has been perforated and affixed to the top of the viv, just between the lip and the top of the background material. This is attached to the pump, transporting filtered water around the side of the viv and allowing it to very slowly drip down the background/side. This should help with humidity, as well as with filtratuion as it lets the water pass through pretty much the whole viv before being filtered again.

There is a lot of pothos planted as rooted clippings throughout the viv, some of these have been pinned onto the background with wire.

The tank will be lit by a bulb in the hood of this aquarium.

Future tasks involve - laying down a layer of oak leaves on top of the leca, purchasing and planting some small broms and other plants, and placing some empty filom cannisters for eggs to be latyed in.

Comments and suggestions are appreciated!

Thankyou-this lump of cork bark was a steal in a local pet shop for around 6-7 quid (12-14 dollars)
