Here is my first official vivarium, well actually it's a reconstruction of my first which was only up for a week (I was having pump/false bottom issues). It's a 12x12x12 exo terra, let me know what you think. Constructive criticism please!
First off, I'm not sure about the placement of the earth star, it's a little awkward and a little too large... I may take it out and mount a larger (in comparison to the green brom) N. Rio Red bromeliad on the background in it's place. I'm also trying to get my creeping fig clippings to take hold but the leaves are wilting despite my heavy misting. I also have some Ficus "oak leaf" which I may add and I'm patiently waiting for my java moss to take over.
I'm also not too keen on the pond. What do you think about covering it with a piece of egg crate and putting rocks at the base of the waterfall for the water to flow through. The tank is currently empty but future frogs may need the extra ground space and the water has no filter so it would probably stay cleaner that way anyways.
One final note, next month the Canadian Reptile Breeders Expo will be here in Montreal. Currently I do not own any frogs and have NO experience with them what so ever. I wanted to dip my fingers into the world of terrarium construction before buying some.
I'm really considering picking up a pair at the Expo but I'm not at all sure which ones would be able to live a 12x12 cube. Could anyone recommend a species? The one thing stopping me is culturing fruit flies. Since I haven't owned frogs I obviously have no experience in that department and I'm worried that if I screw up I would have no one to fall back on. None of the pet stores in my area sell fruit flies and I don't know any frog-keepers in Montreal.
Sorry for the wall of text.
And thanks in advance for your input!
