Default Completed viv for leucomelas?

I have been wanting some regular sized darts for a while in addition to my imitators. I put together this viv recently hoping to add some leucs when I find some available. It’s an 18x18x24 eco terra. Water feature keeps the humidity up but there is no pool of water. It ru s down the drift wood into gravel and back into the drainage layer. The pump is easily accessible if needed by pulling up a clump of moss that hides it toward the back.

Does this look like something leucs will be happy in?

That looks beautiful! From my research and experiences seeing them in other vivariums, Leucs love to climb around, so all that vertical space will be appreciated!

Wow that looks amazing! What's that creeping plant in the back there?

Thank you!
I believe it is a Pilea. The tag on it said “red stem”.”

Looks like it is Pilea glauca “red stem tears”.

I got some leucs! Joshs frogs put them on sale last week so I snatched up a few. 4 actually. They are so pretty and definitely use all of the space. I’ve seen them up high with the broms, out under the water branch, even clinging to the side glass toward the top. They go everywhere.







Please forgive the quality of the iPhone photos.

Might want to move that pilea glauca down. They grow like mad toward the light and will be where you have them now on no time. I'll try to upload pix when I get home. I still haven't posted pix of my viv cause I didn't want to mess with a photo sharing site. I'll get on it today though to show you what I mean.

I have noticed that. I plan to do a lot of trimming. I like the shady corner it’s providing for now.

This is all I meant. They grow upwards quickly. Easier to let them grow upwards than train em to grow downwards. Just my 2 cents though.

I like the design and layout. Your Leucs will love it.

Oh wow. They do get viney. Appreciate the heads up.
