Default here it is. my first attempt.

Well, I've been talking about this tank for a while and now it's finished. It's not the best pic 'cause it was taken with my cell phone, but anyhow. It's an 18" exo cube with a gs background, leca base, and a homemade substrate mix. Lots of plants, some from home depot(broms etc.), some from my old man, and some from black jungle a while back. Please let mt know what you think.charlies terrarium.jpg

Looks very nice! That ficus will grow in nicely and in about 4-6 months you will have a jungle in there.

Thanks all. As of now, there is nothing in there. I posted a thread a while back about potential inhabitants, but I still haven't made up my mind. I was thinking either a pair of terribilis, a trio of auratus, or a small group of thumbs, but I am not sure. Lately, I have been looking at some leucs as a possibility, so who knows. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Very nice, I like the lush look. Can you specify the "ingredients" that went in to making ur substrate?

Candy, you bet, you fly me down there and I would love to help
Devanny, the soil is a mix of about equal parts coco fiber, orchid bark, ground leaf litter, and ground sphagnum moss, with a bit of sand and peat moss thrown in as well.
I either need to get some moss growing on the floor or throw a bunch of leaf litter in there. Who knows. I'm just super happy with the way it turned out.
