Default Oophaga tank (fixer upper)

Hello!

I wanted to share this (old)tank I picked up on friday. Size is 75x50x50cm. The tank was copmletely wrecked and neglected over the years, I think it sitting in this guys basement for 10 years. After a lot of hard work over the last 2 days this is wat I turned it into so far :





I still need to build a stand and lampcabinet for it. Also going to add some different marcgravia and som more moss. The tank will be used for Oophaga, probably a pair of my own offspring F1 O.P.Bastimentos RFB . If not the bastimentos it will be a pair of O.Escudo if I find a female. I would love to know your thoughts, comments, tips and advice! I don't build tanks often...

Greets,
Tijl

Found an old aquarium cabinet in the triftstore today, cost me the full 2! (+-2dollars) I only needed to make a bigger shelf to put the tank on. This is what it looks like so far :






Would love to get to feedback and some advice, mayebe change or add a plant? Missed a spot? Forgot something? Let me know!

Greets,
Tijl

What's that shelving in the background? Such a perfect fit. Very satisfying.

Yes, Im very happy with the cabinet and the conversion! I am glad you also like this.

If you mean the shelves on the first picture, they are containing some books,comics,deckboxes, rubix cubes, a big hypnotoad,catpole, a tattoo machine and some other very random stuff...
This is (a part of) my living room... Behind the shelves you can find 4 tanks and 6 growout boxes for all juvenile frogs. And some aphids...

Sorry, I mean the ones in the back with all the tanks on them. Actually that may be just the tanks themselves stacked on each other. What tanks are those?

Unfortunately, it would be pretty hard for me to pick them up in the Netherlands!

But they look great.

I can't wait for this young F1 female and a similar looking male to move to this tank when it's ready. I think she is by far the most beautifull offspring I got from my breeders to this day. The white around the eyes is not common with my offspring. Absolutley love it!

A few changes are made in the meanwhile and this is how the tank looks like today:



I will still let it grow for a while before the O.P.Bastimentos inhabit the tank.

I love the way the plants and the moss on the background have grown in. The seed pods are also a nice touch. Looks super natural and I'm sure the frogs will appreciate the dense cover and big ol' bromeliads once they're added.

Thanks for the compliments! Everything still had to grow a lot bigger and more vigorous.

Took a short clip of the tank :
