Looks great! are the wood trimmings attached to the glassdoor? and also you should've put a glass cover there, the humidity and water might ruin the wood top

This is polystyrene and polyurethane foam, covered with ADHESIVE GENERAL-PURPOSE and epoxy resin and on the top of all this I sprinkle sand and coconut peat.
Those lightbulbs aren't covered.

Yes they are. You're right this is a problem but the case of humidity should solve a good ventilation. Now I don't have aptly controller.

in tank I have: 6 Epipedobates tricolor in the future I want to have "thumbnail" dart frog D. lamasi "green" and "red panguana " or d. pumilo but now I'm learning.
