Beautiful cube tank! I've always wondered how one would look as a center piece in a room

I got some more plants for the tank, mostly orchids from Andy's. The orchids were great, most of them split into at least 2 specimens. I always try to add plants late in the day when frog activity is low so I don't have to worry much about escapes. As usual, the frogs stayed out of the way while I worked. Once I got done, they all came out to see what was new, kind of like dogs sniffing everything. So much fun watching them.
Here's the new plants.

Goodyera pusilla (I pulled the Ludisia negra and replaced with this one)


Cadetia taylori


Ceratostylis pleurothallis


Dendrobium prenticei


Encyclia bractescens


Epigeneium nakaharae

Thanks. About half my broms have pups unfolding right now which is nice. The frogs really don't seem to care for them much, but it's nice to see the tank growing and filling in. I'm still looking for some kind of ground cover for the bottom shelf. I've tried a couple things, but the light level is pretty low so either real slow growth or the plants don't even try to go spread into the shadows.

Do you have any detailed pictures of your in tank ventilation?

Nothing elaborate for the in tank ventilation.

I have two 60mm fans mounted to the top glass using Hydrophyte's fan mount kits. I also have two 2" screen vents, one in front and one in back for passive air flow when the A/C is blowing. I was having problems with plants drying too quickly along the back wall, so I covered most of it. I left the corners in the back open so air could still flow through the tank.
The black tube you see in the first frog pic is hooked up to the humidifier under the tank.

The tank has been growing very well. I ripped out a ton of moss yesterday, it was getting super thick and starting to smother other plants. I had a couple plants that I removed because they were growing way too fast and regular trimming just wasn't working anymore. Here's a quick pic of the tank.


Also saw this guy checking something out under the wood. Not sure if he was looking for a place to sleep or saw something to eat.

Fantastic tank

Always cool finding the first eggs!

Are you pulling them or letting frogs do the work?

I've been debating this. One frog in particular was messing with them yesterday. He/she was just sitting on them. Not sure what was going on, but this morning the eggs were moved around. After that, I'm thinking I may need to pull them out.
