Default My 2nd Build, exo terra

Did a build a couple of years ago. Went okay with a few hiccups here and there. So I decided to do a build on my exo terra.
Will update on weekends as don't have much time during the week!
Thanks

Just siliconed them on to the background and used the string to support them while drying

Looks good so far. I don't have much experience in keeping darts, but why wait a couple YEARS for frogs?? Holy schnikes, I couldn't wait 3 months before adding my first darts! Definitely get the microfauna and leaf litter in there to get them going and producing in the tank. As for your light, it looks like it should be okay. The spectrum really looks to be in the 5500K to 6500K range, so plants will more than likely grow pretty well with it. What kind of light are you using? T5 HO, Power Compact, T12, LED? If you increase the spectrum to lie toward the 8000K range, it way look a little more appeasing to the viewer and have less red/pink/purple hue to it.

Yeah, it's pretty pink, so I'd bank it's around the 5500K range. It's all based on how you'd like it to look though!
