Default 24x18x24 Bromeliad Canopy

Hello, just wanted to share my latest tank currently housing four juvenile leucs. The tank was constructed using a large amount of manzanita root burls, a great stuff and cork background, and a small pond out of manzanita and great stuff. The pond is connected to the drainage layer and allows me to access it as needed, also functioning as a tad deposition site in the future. I can post a plant list later on if there is more interest in the tank.

That looks nice. I like the branch canopy -- makes more of a 3-D look. I'm also oddly attracted to shingling plants; are those Marcgravia in back?

Thank you! And yes, the two on the background are m. sintenisii, the ones on the wood are m. rectiflora and m. sp. peru.

Oh God, me too. Man, am I ever!

OP - nice tank. I like how you occupied a bunch of the "wasted air space" with lovely stuff. I'm currently tackling such a thing myself, in 36x18x36 format. Thanks for sharing.

cheers

Thank you, the leucs really make use of it. It is somewhat hard to tell from the photo but the wood with the bromeliads extends out 12" from the background, so it's quite a bit of space.

Hi!
Your tank aetup is beautiful!
Question: When you first introduced your leucs into the viv, did they disappear for a while? I've reared 4 banded leucs from froglets, and now they're about full grown. I think I have 2.2. A week ago, I moved them from their grow out tank to a permanent setup (nothing as fancy as yours). I haven't seen them since! In their old tank, they always came out to feed. Now, when I put flies in, they don't emerge. I hesitate to start tearing things apart to look for them, as I don't want to add to their stress. Any thoughts?

First of all, thank you! That doesn't sound fun though, to be honest mine are very bold and were out exploring the tank right after I put them in there. I have a cobalt tinc that is rather shy though and has behaved similarly. I would wait it out and just keep up the feedings as long as the tank doesn't look overrun with flies. Also, I know there are some behavioral differences between standards, banded, and other locales; so that may be a factor as well. Overall, a week isnt all that long for frogs to get used to their new enclosure and I'm sure in time they will be out again. No need to worry &#x1f60a;

Just wanted to add some more photos. I got a shot looking from the side of the tank, one of my leucs hiding in the fireball, new growth coming from my rhaphidophora, and a microgramma reptans I added.

Great update. You gave me my fix for today on Leucs ( I'm working on a build now). Are those green foot the earlier imports?

Not sure exactly, I purchased them from sarasmiles on here. The line is from JL Exotics, but I don't know what import they are. Are you planning on stocking some in your tank?
