Raf-

Without a doubt this is one of my favorite tanks I've ever seen and I hope to replicate it in a largish build of my own someday. Amazing attention to detail and a truly inspiring build. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us

Hi Raf, can you repost the scheme you made of the false bottom and pump and the pictures of these? These post are broken and I’m really interested in how it looks.

Wow spectacular! Looks like a professional zoo or aquarium installation. Some frogs will be very lucky to inhabit that display.

I have 2 photos that aren't very clear. It's more difficult than I thought to get a lot of the top on photo.
The first one how the liana is attached to the grid.

You just posted how you made the vines and it looks like there is some plastic hollow hose you inserted into the rope? How and why? Do you have any video of this tank I had no idea you had a water feature would like to see more

j'essai de dessiner le mien et de prévoir les emplacements pour le système d'arrosage mais je n'ai pas droit a l'erreur donc toute aide est bienvenu ^^
( au passage a tu ajouter des ventilateurs ? si oui comment doivent'ils être orientés ?)

merci d'avance

Anyone know why the early pics of this thread are now just question marks? He must have taken them down? Anyone have the early pics, especially build/tutorial type pics?

Hi I removed the waterfall a long time ago.
I learned that a pump should be outside the vivarium or it will break down soon. So I can't give you any more advice.

As requested an update:



I recently trimmed most of the plants so it looks a bit less dense.
I try to trim the plants more carefully and frequently so it should look even better in the future.

Looks cool, really a jungle. All the vines... Wonderful.

I see less moss than before, is it right?

The moss is growing again now that the bottom gets more light.
A dense jungle-like terrarium doesn't have much moss at the bottom.

I think the answer is "yes". A similar additive it's what I used and it seems to have worked well. But I would also wait confirmation from others.

After some research on here, yes its just a different brand. Most people use ACE or Quikcrete brand. Thanks for the reply!

After searching the forum, it seems like most people skip the step of covering with silicone and coco fiber after coating with the binder like RAF did.

It seems to be the same thing. But after 5 years I strongly suggest not to use this kind of product because it just isn't strong enough to last in our wet vivarium. You can better use some sort of epoxy if you don't wanna redo your viv in a couple of years.
I plan to redo my viv and I'll be using epoxy.
