Looking really good! I thought I would mention though that those plants you have in the water are not actually aquatic. They will be ok for a month or two, but they will eventually die and rot and foul up the water. They also get huge. I don't know why pet stores sell them as aquarium plants.

At the advice of Taari, I pulled the ribbon plants out of the water and planted them outside. Also added a fake vine.

Hadn't actually looked at the pics on here on anything other than my phone and netbook so I decided to take a few pictures with my camera. Cleaned off Buddha with a ton of boiling water and added vents to keep the front clear and improve airflowfts!

Just thought I'd mention for future builds: the silicone probably didn't stick because you left it shiny and didn't rough it up. It's a huge pain in the ass, but my dad has this vibrating bosch tool with a pointy square bit on the end that I used to rough it up, and everything stuck perfectly, after 3 or 4 coats on each side. Good thing you got the black silicone, because it almost looks like rocks

Yeah, I found out about that shortly after I built it. But at least I know now for the next one whenever that happens to be

I was just about to ask how your frogs were doing. I know that there was much concideration involve with the depth of your pond and how you were going to keep things from going were they didn't belong. I am curious if there have been any issues with the frogs and the water. (Falling in) and what type of microfauna (I know that's not spelt right ) did you seed with. In a tank that size do you find that they sustain there numbers pritty well on there own. Or do you have to culture them as well as FF's. Sorry for all the ?'s just trying to soak up info

Questions are good. That's how you learn the pond varies in depth, from 2 - 4 inches. The frogs have so far completely avoided the pond side of the tank. They like to hang out near the Buddha statue. I've got a piece of plexiglass to keep anything out from underneath my land section and a couple pieces of mopani wood going from the pond onto the land portion so in case someone falls in, they can hopefully climb out. So far, I've got springtails in the tank, but every once in a while, I add more. I think they are sustaining in the tank, but I add more to offset the ones the froggies eat. On friday, when I get paid, I will be ordering isopods from Josh's frogs so I can seed with that as well.

I'm used to having funds sucked outta my wallet by projects. Usually it's a car, though. Was able to build this in less than a year and get my current car running only because of my tax return x)

I know just what you mean. Even thou it was a slow build from where I sit the wait paid off. Is your male calling at all. And its it to loud. Hard to tell from videos. I know azureus have like a buzz instead of a croak. Well from what I've heard on YouTube . Man I love YouTube. But what i'm trying to find out is if the call travels vary far from the cage. I would love a large cage with a bunch of imitators. But I know my wife will say the are to loud. (there we go with the damn wives again )

Have not heard any calling yet but from what I've read, you have to be right next to the tank to hear them

that's good to know. I personal would like the calling. But others in the fam not so much. Lol. how many cultures of FF's do you keep. I only ask so many questions because you have basically the setup number and type of frog i'm looking for. I assume we would have similar care requirements.

that sounds like a reasonable number I know others will argue that that's not enough. But come on guys I don't want to spend more time caring for my pets food than enjoying my frogs lol. (with that said I understand the whole "#[email protected]# happends" and you should prepare just in case.)

Lol. I'm sure when I get one going I will do the same. I tend to over due things myself. 4 is about the standard for what I gather.
