Default New False Bottom 50 Gal Viv! (Pics)

Hey Everyone!

Had to tear down my tank a couple months ago, so I decided to do a false bottom this time around. I also added a bunch more plants, better lights, coco fiber mat background, and a fan for air circulation. There is a waterfall on the right underneath all the pothos. Let me know what you all think, and if i need better pics! Hope you all like it.

Probably gonna get some Leucs.
I also have 2 Cobalt Tincs and 2 Blue/Black Azureus (6/7 mo old) for sale/trade ... If anyone is interested pls email me.

Hi, i'll chime in here, i like your viv alot.....
always liked the long horizontal, personally i think it would be killer to have some kind of creeper up on the walls...

Looks good. Hope we get updated pics as things grown in. And, of course, with frogs.

Thx Everyone! I also think some growth on the walls would look good, but I can't get anything to grow! Anyone have any suggestions? (I tried some creeping fig but it died)

Pothos is almost impossible to kill.. Also, I've had good luck with creeping fig.

Yeah pothos will take over the whole tank - watch out it doesn't push the lid off, make sure you keep it trimmed down

UPDATE!!!
Heres my tank now ... Jan '11

I decided to go with P.Vittatus for this tank. There is 8 in there and a 9th one will be coming when it warms up outside.

Cant really get any pics from the frogs bc they hide ALL the time ... they RARELY come out!
So i cant wait till they start singing in about 6mo bc then atleast it will feel like something actually lives in there!

Also, i finally had 1 of my Ludisia Discolors shoot a flower spike!


Enjoy everyone
