Added some bamboo leaves to give the bottom of the tank some more "pop". I was not completely happy the way it looked, to me it looks much better now

I did my best to take some detail shots of what is going on in the tank right now :

Today I went to Holland to visit Bram Naalden and see his beautifull rack system he build for his pumilio! What an amazing build!!! He was kind enough to give me some Marcgravia sintenisii cuttings and some others cuttings to complete my tank. I aslo changed the anthurium andreanum with some begonias since the anthurium's leaves got to big.

Me and Bram :



Please visit Bram's Instagram page and give it some likes from me! His photo's and tanks are amazing! It is by far the most beautifull frogwall have ever seen! Such a nice guy.

Well, it finaly got to me and I decided to move the F1 O.P.Bastimentos to the tank!

The male :






The female :




For now, it is time for them to hide and explore the tank. I hope they won't stay to shy for all to long. Their colors just seem to radiate in this tank!

The male started calling like 10 minutes after I introduced them to their new home.



The size and colors of these frogs match so well with the size of plants and colors in the tank. I could not be more happy with the result.

Go for it! I'm happy this build inspired you and I hope to see you making a topic for it. I also hope you are able to find Oophagas.

So bold, exploring every inch of the tank and calling non stop.. Bastimentos are by far my favorite O.Pumilio! Wath morphs do you guys/gals prefer?

Such a unique look. They're so squat! Love the geometric dots.

I think it's gonna love that tank. For the BG did you just silicone Xaxim panels to the walls and then add chunks of moss? Will you have to cycle back the misting now you've gotten frogs in there?

Thanks.

The panels were already in the tank, but yes. Just silicone and fernroot.

I have cut down on the misting now. I will try and keep the frontsides of the panels green by misting these by hand.

I think the male needed to show her how it's done.
Caught her transporting 2 different tadpoles so far. I absolutely love the parental care with Oophaga.

Haha, unfortunatly no.. They delivered the wrong order first. I tested the Skyled leds on the tank, but I did not liked the color. Same for arcadia wich I later did receive and tested on my Histrionica tank.

I still use 2 x PL 24W 840 bulbs for this tank.

I happy you also enjoy the build

Can't wait to see the result!

I like how structurally complex the vegetation is in that tank. Lots to explore. The frogs in there must be quite happy. That's aspirational!

Glad you like the vivarium!

The male is calling every day and spends a big part of it overlooking everything from the upper parts of the tank.
The female continues to visit her tadpoles and spends most time in or close to the the leaflitter. But they both are absolutley actively found all over the build.

I could not be more happy with how everything turned out and I'm now impatiently waiting for froglets popping out of the vrieseas. 🙂

A few weeks aggo Skylights reached out to me with the question if I was interested in helping to test some different leds and share the expercience with them. Ofcourse I said yes! Today I received this in the mail :







I'm still working on the positioning of the lamps in the two tanks, but the color on their new product (MID 30R) is amazing in both! I was also very surprised to see how deep the Tiny RV are able to shine!
I'm very happy with the new lights, it is a big difference with the old PRO H leds I tried in the past, wich I was not very stocked on.

So a big thanks to :
Start - SkyLight
!!!

I was wrong, apparrently they all are dimmable. Skylight just don't offer the dimmers themselves yet. But you can use the correct module for it.

Cool! Outside of bromeliads (which I donít always use) most of the plants I use really look their best in surprisingly low light; dimmable lights are now one of the first things I look for.

I agree! Aquascaping esthetic rules are at least 30% of an aquarium should be shaded. I feel the same for vivariums.

Even if these leds would not be able to dim, the Tiny RV's are realy easy to position and create bright or shaded spots. I realy like these.

I hadn't seen that before, but it makes sense. The environments the frogs come from have plenty of shade and dappling anyway, so I imagine they may feel more at home, too. I do see plenty of activity right after lights out, so they're obviously comfortable navigating a dim forest floor.

I currently use Fluval LEDs which have many adjustment options (wavelengths, dimming, dawn/dusk etc.) but at some point I'd like to try using smaller spot-light type lights, to mimic sunbeams.
