Default First vivarium

Here are couple of progress pictures of setting up my vivarium.





I'll post more when more progress is made

Plants have been added.







The plants are peperomia, one is P. caperata, the other I'm not quite sure what it is. And a neon pothos as well.

Good job so far, fishingguy. What are you using for substrate?

Thanks!

The substrate is a combination of reptisoil (peat moss, soil, sand and carbon), fir bark and sphagnum moss on top of a hydroball false bottom.

Interesting. I am really looking forward to seeing how these new mixtures of substrate hold up over time. ABG was tried and true, but without tree fern fiber, it ain't ABG which means it's the wild west again in terms of substrates :-)

And finally with a lid and screen ventilation (I'm planning to cover part of the screen).
