Default 24x18x24 Standard Lamasi Vivarium

I finished up a 24x18x24 Exo Terra vivarium for a group of standard lamasi. It was planted using only cuttings from other vivaria in the frog room - I think it turned out pretty well. I've not used cork tubes to this effect before, and I really like the effect it gives - a densely planted mossy vivaria, while still allowing for a full floor of leaf litter and microfauna.

Zach what did you do? Are the cork rounds attached to the sides of the viv?

I was able to wedge them into place after finishing up the background. I originally intended to fill the cork tubes and block access by the frogs, but decided that the tubes provided a ton of hiding places and usable surface area.

It looks great no doubt about it. I've taken cork rounds and cut a piece out of the top and filled it with ABG and planted it before. I like the looks of that viv a lot.

Is that a fern panel background? I can't quite tell, looks like tree fern panels or some sort of epiweb style thing covered with a moss mix. Great viv either way! I'm working on something right now and am going for a similar, heavy moss environment .

It's a simple gs/silicone and cork background. They all look the same when stuff grows on them :P

I added 2 juvies and 6 adults yesterday. I can't believe how much more visible they are in this vivarium - I can easily see 3-4 at any given time. Hopefully, this new found boldness will stick around for a bit. I've already watched several of them courting at the same time on the front glass.

It's a combination of Josh's Frogs sheet moss and moss I get from a fellow frogger that advertises on here from time to time.

I'm starting to think you're right . . .

I typically use several different mosses in a vivarium - one or two tend to become dominant and take over the tank.

It was acquired as B. thelmae, but I have 2 or 3 other plants that were as well, and all are different. Bright light and damp conditions seem to encourage faster growth.

It's the underside of a really common Pellionia, I believe. I don't recall the species, but it's often called "watermelon vine".

so you just cut the cork tubes in half long ways and then wedge them in there? Which side is facing up the bark side or the inside? Did you put any soil if its the inside facing up in there?
