Heres a little Exo Terra I put together last week. A decent selection of plants, but they are all small recent propagated cuttings, so they havnt grown in all that much. Once it grows in, in a few months, I think it'll look great. 6 green sirensis will be going in here soon. Just have to add the leaf litter and some suction cupped film canisters to make it complete. More pics here soon.

Begonia glabra, also from Manuran. I believe you also got a piece of this third plant.

This is the one. Ever identify it?

Re: 18 x 18 x 24 Exo Terra 4 Green Sirensis
 
No, none of our plant guru's have come up with an ID for it. Right now it is simply known as "Manuran's Mystery Vine".

What would anyone add or take away from this viv, considering green R. Sirensis (lamsii) will be going in here. E.g. additional plants, deposition sites, branches, or?

Re: 18 x 18 x 24 Exo Terra 4 Green Sirensis
 
I'm a big believer in branches in most of my thumbnail vivs. It makes all that empty air space in the middle, much more usable.
If you are just looking for a few "bread and butter" plants, I can probably cut a couple/few things for you.
As far as depositing sites, mine use broad leafed plants, the glass side walls, leaf litter, and in completely horizontal, dry film canisters. In my group of 4 green sirensis, I use 2 horizontal canisters, and 6 at a 45 degree angle, 1/3 to 1/2 full of water, for them to deposit tads in. I don't bother pulling any eggs. I don't think I've ever pulled a single egg from them. They do a very good job transporting and keeping all 6 canisters full.

In addition to the CRAZY plant growth, there has been a tremendous amount of calling and courting coming from this viv. I've seen at least two call simultaneously, but never more. So, tentatively, I think its a 2.4 group, which is great! So today I was feeding & spraying, and decided to check the film canister, make sure they were clean, etc, and what do I find, but two eggs stuck inside. Woohoo!! The eggs look to have been laid in the last 24-48 hours. Cannot tell viability for sure yet. The center of each egg looks to be gray. Either way, its a good start, and I'm super happy. Now if I could only convince my group of 6 vanzo's to do the same. Sorry for the crappy quality of the egg pic, its a 10 year old point and shoot nikon coolpix that dostn take close-ups very well.
