Default Well, it took me a year...

BUT, I finally finished my show aquarium. This viv has taken me an extremely long time to do with redoing everything a couple times, money issues, practicing on smaller vivs and then finding plants for it. It's finally done though.



And one of the inhabitants, D. tinctorius (patricia)



And just for fun, the latest imitator froglet.



Hope you guys like it!

-Matt

Its a 37g column. 20x18x24. I really like that size, although the 47 and 56 columns would be really cool for some thumbnails or pumilio. I might have to give one of those sizes a shot in the future.

Very nice McBobs. That brom in the center with the flower spike didn't come from Lowes by any chance did it? And is that a schefflera on the right?

Nice!
I hate putting a tank together and then realizing that the tank looks like, I put it together. Great job.

The brom in the middle and at the upper left actually came from a nursery here in manhattan. And yes, that is a schleffera. Right behind it is an orchid that cant be seen in the picture, but it is doing great and is even putting out new leaves for a second orchid.

The plant on the right is selaginella kraussiana, the plant in the middle in two clumps is riccia fluitans, and the plant on the left front is an unknown. The unknown seems to love the humidity and has spread quite a bit in the couple weeks that it has been in there.

They seem to love it a lot! Tincs are "terrestrial" frogs, but my pair have no problem chasing fruit flies to the top corners! No fly can outrun the voracious eaters.
