Default need help finding a pic.

I am looking for a pic of a tank to try constructing a similar water area. The tank looked like a 29gal, it had a pool area right in the middle of the tank (I think there was an azureus in the water area). The bottom of the tank was covered in java/other moss. I checked the gallery but couldn't seem to find the pic. Also if it is not too much to ask the ID of the person that made it to contact. Thanks- DREW

Ghost wood, tree fern panels and 1/4 circle cork bark curls. Although now you can barely tell that there is that piece in the tank with all of the java moss.

I don't know if this is the appropriate place to post this, but I am looking for a pic too. It was a small tank that took awesome advantage of ground space with lots of terraces and such. It had beautifully sculpted terrestrial space.

Thanks,
Amanda

Thanks for the compliments, I have been trying to get a new pic of it to show how it has grown in, but the lighting hasnt been the best with the sun setting before I get home, hopefully this weekend. There are 3 males and 1 female in there and I have gotten a couple of clutches from them, but so far nothing that has survived. I might split up the males so there are only 2 in the tank. Its a 29 gallon tank. Most of the pillow moss has died back, but the java has taken over.

Wow! Looks great. The plants really filled in nicely. Do the frogs ever move from that spot. :lol:

The plant in the left corner doesnt get much light, so it has died back and I replaced it. The crpys werent doing too well and the fact that the ficus took over the back wall along with the java. The frogs always being in "pit" is sort of a pavlovian responce, since I always mist them in the morning before I feed them and dump the flies out there, and to get a good pic I needed to clean the front glass. Well I guess they thought it was supper time.
A quick sketch of how I made this tank.

You guys really plan your things out eh? Looks really good ! I noticed the plants grew, but frogs barely moved. Are those the plastic variety of azureus ? :lol:

That's such an awesome setup. Giving me lots of ideas for my next viv. I really like the addition of the cork curls for the access areas, you can't even tell there is anything back there. I really like how the water is pumped out onto the wood also, great idea!

After hearing about all of the nightmares of pumps clogging under false bottoms I tried to think of a way to always have easy access to them, yet still hide that part from view. Granted the fit is a little tight and takes some wiggling it can be removed from the tank. Originally I planned to have 2 water falls on either side but after placing the wood in I decided against it. I also had an aquarium heater in the tank to maintain the temp, but have since removed it.
One the topic of planning tanks, I cant tell you how many times I have spent over an hour just figuring the right angle to cut and place ghostwood in my tanks. If the stuff wasnt so expensive maybe I would spend less time. Going to art school and majoring in industrial design made me look at each tank as a work of art balancing out curves, movement and plant placement. To me half the fun of having frogs is constructing the tanks.

I agree, good wood for humid tanks is hard to come by. What size tank is this BTW? I am definately going to try something like this for my next viv.

In the pool area in the middle of the tank, is there a screen or some other form of divider from the gravel? Thanks -Drew

On top of the egg crate is a layer of fiberglass screen, then the rocks. Forgot to call that out on the pic.
