First Build - 24x18x24
I've finally completed most of the build in my first DF vivarium. It's a 24x18x24 Exo Terra with the mesh lid replaced with a solid piece of 5mm clear Acrylic (which I plan to put some small ventilation holes in).
Background consists of black silicone on the glass, covered in expanding foam coated with more black silicone and then covered in a mix of coco-fibre, orchid bark & ProRep Forest substrate.
Lighting is an 18 inch Beamswork 6500k LED panel, but I also plan to add a T5 hood as well.
My intention is to plant the vivarium up and let this grow in for a couple of months before adding 3 or 4 DF's.
This is the current state of play with the viv:
I have planted the following (from left to right):
Hypostes sp. - White
Hypostes sp. - Red
I'm now struggling to decide what to plant, and where to plant it. Any suggestions, including location would be much appreciated.
