Pump: Rio



Background: Cocos Pannles (Herpsupplies), cork.
Pond: Peat bricks (Vavarium Concepts)
Drainage: Clay pellets (from a local organic hydroponics store) not
enough the 1st time had to wait a day :evil:
Sump: PVC no glue, can house a heater and pump.

sheet of weed control from a local hardware store.
Waterfall: I used a sheet of plastic just under the falls to keep it moving
into the pond.

I want to thank everyone on this board for your help. You have answered many of my questions and your past posts have answered many questions I did not even know I had. :lol:

I have too much extra supplies! :x I didn't really plan it just wanted to make 1 tank for now. What to do? :wink: Oh yea, when I bought the used Lizard Lounges it was 3 for the price of 2! :P Be looking for round 2 soon.

I welcome any comments or sugestions.

Jason

Jason,

that sure looks really nice...seems like there are a lot of walking space for the frogs.

I like the moonlight actinic nice effect but just curious, do they affect the plant's growth?

regards,

Thanks!

I highly doubt they affect the plants growth. It has only been set up for 24 hours. It was more for looks and it may or maynot affect the frogs breeding schedule.

I left room for more plants thus the football field in the front! :lol:

The attinic I think will help the plants. It helps corals. Will see!!!!! The attinic is seperate from the moon light. The moon light is just a LED light.

Nice work Jason! I really like the moonlight, the only thing I'd change is to go with a 5500-6700k bulb instead of the actinic.
Talk to you later,
