Default 750+ Gallon Vivarium: The Rainforest Exhibit!

I figured I would post this vivarium in the finished builds, since,except for a few minor details and changes, it is almost completed!
A few threads are posted in the Construction Forums and New Members section.

Our main enclosure is a Custom Aquariums Amphibious Aquarium, the largest one (so far) that they have ever built. They have mad a six foot one, but it is 2 feet wide, where ours is a foot shorter in length, but 2 feet wider in depth. 5' long x 5 feet tall x 4 feet deep) Still, both are pretty cool!

We are only a few weeks from getting the frogs, which will be mainly the Golden Poison Frog (Phyllobates terriblis). We have partnered with one of the largest and most successful rainforest charities in the world, the Rainforest Trust. What is ironic is, we had decided to house the Golden Poison Frog (our logo has one on it) months before we contacted the Rainforest Trust, however, the week we did contact them, they had just solidified an agreement to save thousands of acres of Golden Poison Frog land the week before...talk about timing!

Let me know your thoughts!

Also, we are trying to build our YouTube Vlog...if you can, please subscribe, thank you...

Please tell me more!!! I would really love your feedback. I sit in an office all day painting, and it is always awesome to other people's ideas, comments, etc.

Either way, thank you...it means a lot to me!

I really like how it turned out. You probably answered this before, but I havenít seen it yet, but what animals are you keeping in there? Also, how do you keep the front glass clear with the misting nozzles so close?

Hi!!! Great questions!

The main animal from the start of this has been the Golden Poison Frog (Phyllobates terriblis). I have mentioned that we are in a partnership with the amazing charity, Rainforest Trust. The week I contacted them to see if they wanted to partner up (within a month or two, i will be sharing our plans with them, I really needed The Rainforest Exhibit to be completed, which now it almost is), they made it aware to me that the previous week, they just sealed a deal to save over (I hope this is right, I know it is close) 18K acres of Golden Poison Frog territory!!! They said they saw my logo and, like me, felt it was meant to be!

For the rest of the fauna, I have always loved Red-Eyed Tree Frogs. So as of today, it is still a go on this. Maybe 2 or 3, no more than that. I may consider the Monkey frog (Phyllomedusa sauvagii), instead of the Red-Eyed, but I am still debating.

I wanted Mourning Geckos to bring awareness to invasive species, but I am concerned with escapes, since the babies are so small, and we have some small slit spaces. We will see.

Then a new friend, PA Woods and Forests YouTube Channel:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4n...r50aiDHpDE_CFg
...suggested the Bumblebee Millipede.
so after a bit of research, I decided to put 2 or 3 in the exhibit.

I have started putting fish in the enclosure, catfish, and some Tetras. I will be posting the list soon.

OK, now the glass!

I have two fans on each side of the enclosure. They are 3 inches in diameter.
One is over a radiator type heater, the other is just by itself. The radiator is only a precaution. Since the studio is in the basement (half underground), it gets colder in there than the rest of the place, so I want to keep the air in the enclosure to around 73 degrees, and the water to 77 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. I have kept the air consistent like that since the start. The water is only 2 weeks running now, but it is right at 78 degrees.

After the mist and fog, they pretty much knock out the condensation.
I am still toying with them and I may consider putting two on the top of the tank (inside and protected).

I will post pics, although you can see the fans on the lower sides, right above the water, but on the outside.

I hope this answered your questions?

Let me know
