Default first viv (10g horizontal) *biggish pics*

False bottom setup. Going to house 2 auratus.

The shots don't show the full depth of the plants and background but you get the point.

Are those the stick on thermo and humidity gauges? If so after a while the humidity one will crap out with the high levels. I was disappointed when mine did. So I upgraded.

Oh yeah the tank looks good so far. I agree moss will look good in it.

Yea they are, I also had the genius idea of mounting them on the lid of my tank :roll: .

I have a digital weather station that gives me very accurate humidity and temp readings. I'm just going to pop that in when I want to check up on things.

Nice I would have covered the false bottom, but other than that very nice.

Yea, I should have stuffed the edge full of rocks... I'll make another one in a couple weeks, it was fun .

Going to plumb a ultrasonic humidifier this week. I live in a winter desert and can't get humidity above 75% VIA spray bottle.

I just noticed you put Ivy in there too, make sure you keep in in check in my experience the Ivy will thrive. Good for the Ivy bad for all the rest of the plants. the Ivy I had tried to smother my other plants so I pulled it out. (it's growing well outside now).
Just my 2 cents

Default Bright Green Fern Moss

I'm not sure of it's name but it thrives in the Viv you have to keep up with it. I get dozens of smaller plants monthly they have an appealing look to them.

The closest I've been able to ID it as is 'spike moss' (don't have the scientific name handy atm).

Anyways my G&B auratus came today woo. They don't seem to be shy at all; hoping all over the tank and picking at spring tails and such. This makes me happy.

I'll get some pictures of them when I get a little more time .

Very nice tank!!! You did a lot with the limited space. I especially like the background.

That's not a wire screen seperating the substrate from the false-bottom, is it?????

For those wondering what type of plant the green "mossy" one is, it is a selaginella kraussiana. I love selaginella's. They are great plants, just make sure it has a good draining substrate, or it will quickly rot. I have killed many of them.

Oh yeah, it looks good for a ten, what are you putting in it?

Whats the chances of auratus being raised to froglet stage without any intervention in a viv like this? Or too many variables to say?
