Looks awesome!!
Great job - it's very lush and full of greenery!
Some leaf litter would be a great addition as well!

I added some neos today and I got a fogger too






I stopped using the waterfall just cause I think I didnt put enough ball substrate to properly have drainage so I drained all the water out
I may redo it later but no waterfall for now

That's bc the water is wicking upwards through the LECA. You have to make false bottoms for waterfalls.

Looks good. I like those neos.

You may have a problem with that HD "fern moss". Ive tried it several times in my viv and within a few weeks it has died everytime. I think it requires cooler temps and a lot of circulation to do well so keep an eye on it.

I'd be interested in an update as how your fern moss is doing.

I use a lot of riccia, java, and xmas moss with great results, but would be interested in how yours does.

And agreed to have a waterfall a false bottom is a must. Viv does look good though.

I am thinking I will have to seperate them soon but need to set up another viv for tincs only
I wonder how long till they start breeding? I have had them for about 4 months now.
might use moss mix on the background to make it grow

I just sealed the top with tape to keep the humidity up.
Going to find a place that cuts glass so I can change the top the right way
The tape is a good quick fix
