If anyone has a better option for photo upload other than Photobucket please help me
I have been planning a large build since around February of this year, looking at tanks and supplies etc. etc... I originally wanted to do a larger tank but, did not want to construct a tank and stand. So I settled on the largest exo I could find.
For those wondering why I am going all out for my first Viv.
As a teenager I kept your basic Leos, Beardeds, and Ball pythons like everyone else. Also Had a very basic set up for a group of about 8 red eyed tree frogs. As well as other odd creatures that I cant remember. I remember at my peak between babies breeders and pets I had close to 100 animals I was caring for. I have kept salt and fresh water aquariums my entire life. I have been keeping planted fresh tanks close to 10 years and what I have found in 10 years is that I enjoy the plants in the aquarium 10x more than I do the fish or shrimp...
That brings us here. I remember always wanting dart frogs as a teenager, it just wasn't viable at the time. At the beginning of the year I came across some pictures of darts and forgot about how beautiful they were. It made me wanted to bring a piece of the jungle home. I may or may not put darts in it now as I care more about the lay out and plants but if I do I will be putting in Ranitomeya benedicta. That could be months or years after completion.
This Journal is mostly for my purposes but would love to hear critiques and questions to make this perfect.
Construction has not begun I have been ordering everything online so I have everything ready to go.
I purchased 15 (?) pieces of driftwood online that I liked in order to have a good selection of wood and my intention is to give/sell the remaining (keep a look out). I am still waiting on supplies with the biggest items being the MistKing and the stand for the exo.
I have not decided on lighting yet I was cosidering running 3 or 4 of the Fluval Plant Spectrum Bluetooth LED 3.0
Not sure if that would work or not.
My first task Is to silicone the sides and background so we dont see any foam I "should" have pictures of that In the next few weeks...
