Is that 36 width or height?

Either of the enclosures that you have mentioned are more than enough space/volume to create an outrageously beautiful system.

My recommendation to you would be to search the forum for enclosures that are equal to the dimensions you have already mentioned. You will be delighted with what you find.

Another thing to keep in mind is whether or not you want frogs and, if you want frogs, what species. When looking for inspiration, itís important to know what you are aiming for and what requirements you need to meet. That is ultimately why I asked whether or not the 36 inches is width or height.

That being said, do you have an idea of what species you want to house and look after? What types of plants you want? Etc.. if you are simply looking for inspiration, all you need to do is look.. we canít help without more information though.

I recently set up an enclousure of similar sizes (90cm*40cm*50cm) (long life to the SI ) and so I'll attach a photo of it (even though it is quite poor in quality). It only is my second dendro's vivarium but in my opinion it is quite beautiful. Hoping to be helpful.

What are you trying to keep in the enclosure? Most dart frogs need or prefer a well planted tank. Here is mine, which is the same as yours (right hand side). It will be housing 4 Mantella Baroni. My plants come in this week so Iíll have moss drip wall on the right side all ready to go by then.

Thanks. I went the easier route (for me anyway), and used the backgrounds they bring as a backdrop for a custom one. Added a few pots to give it a more dimensional look, a few cans of Great Stuff and coco husk and voila! Once the plants get in itíll look a lot better.
