Default Please critique my BlueJeans viv

This viv is a 37g tall aquarium. No background except for black poster paper on the outside. Corkbark flats have holes drilled to anchor the brom's. I feel like I have a pretty good amount of leaf litter. The substrate was heavily seeded with both pink and temperate springtails, and dwarf white iso's. The springtails are flourishing. They are everywhere and up higher on a couple decomposing brom leaves.

I have 1.2 Blue Jeans hiding in there. I routinely see the male after misting but the females are keeping a very low profile. The trio of pumilio were bought as proven. They have been in my care for about four weeks now. Trying to give them privacy, but it's hard not to look to make sure everybody is looking well fed, which they do.

I would appreciate any comments or tips that would help me improve their enclosure.

Thank you.

It looks good but you might want to try some film canisters as well if you want breeding to occurring at a higher rate (or at least to see the tads easily).

I have two black canisters suctioned to wall on back glass(hidden behind some foliage). Also have about eight canisters laying on bottom floor. Some are seen in the pic, but the others I partially covered with leaf litter and positioned the openings towards the back of the tank.

Would you recommend more, in diff positions or heights?

Thanks!

BTW, most of those brom's came from you. Pretty much all of them are thriving after the long,cold trip up to Iowa.

Haha, thought some looked familar! Hope they all got their safely and packed nicely. If not, you know who to bug.

I like it though, and you did good on hiding the canisters. Congrats!
