Default Our Green Sirensis viv

I've been asked for some shots of how our Sirensis viv is set up. This is a 25 gallon slope front (12" x 24" x 24") We have a group of 2.2 in here. Substrate is an inch of Turface, followed by 1 to 1.5 inches of a mix of coco chunks and charcoal chunks. Size of chunks is 1/4 to 1/2 inch. One handful of ABG mix at the roots of each plant.

That's what it is, baseball infield conditioner. You want the "All Sport Pro" grade which is a particle the size of kitty litter. You can get it at a John Deere Landscape supply.

Great looking tank, I have never seen a slope front tank like that. Do you have a diagram on how to make one? are there any downfalls that you have noticed?

Thanks, Curtis

That was a $1 Lowe's special. It was sold as a bromeliad. Pockets are not big enough to hold more than a few drops of water. Possibly a Tillandsia?

Sorry David, I have not yet done a whole frog room thread. I'll try to get around to that soon.

We set this up without any broms other than the Tillandsia cyanea. We have 6 film canisters set at a 45 degree angle, about 1/3 to 1/2 filled with water. The parents do their part in keeping a tad in each one. We have pulled the tads at times and we have also let the parents raise them. They morph out much bigger when we raise them ourselves. Lately though, we've mostly left them be. Just yesterday I saw a juvie and a fresh morph hopping towards the back. I don't even know how many frogs might be hopping about in their now!
