Default sirfugu's 25 gallon rebuild

I let my friend take care of my frogs while I was away for the weekend and he somehow managed to basically destroy my tank. Plants had fallen off the background and there was coir everywhere. So I decided to redo it and make it look a whole lot better. It houses three Yellow Galactonotus that just started showing courting activity last night after the rain. A pic from before after I first set it up:



..and now after it has been redone and grown in for several months:

Creeping Fig is the one with the smaller leaves on the back in the center, right?

Ditto. Couldn't agree more.

Yeah the fig is what is growing on the background in the middle.

Who says that?! I'm glad it looks good because that's about the only thing I know how to grow. The T5 really helps as well.

Well done, maybe it a good thing in the end that your friend destroy the tank, now it much better looking. I saved a couple pictures for inspiration.
Thanks for sharing, Julien

Haha people tend to think it is just a pest and takes over everything. I like it

And sorry to hyjack the thread slightly, but I'm actually having issues with my creeping fig....The new growth is yellow and almost see-through. Have any ideas on what could be causing this? My polka-dot plants is acting like this also, however my button ferns, ivy, and oak leaf ficus pumila are all fine???

I built the tank before I bought the bookcase and my original plan was to put it on one of the shelves, which is why there wasn't any hardscape, I was trying to make it as light as possible. And then I got the bookshelf and there was no way it was going to hold it. IKEA isn't known for sturdiness. But it all worked out in the end; the hardscape makes all the difference.
