Default Video - My Tank Build!

After using all of this great information on the forum, I wanted to give some information back to any interested. I just finished another tank for my 1.1.1 A. callidryas tree frogs and took a series of photos and cobbled together a video with narration. I hope this helps some folks get an idea of what goes into a tank.

Some information that could benefit the video...
- I chose a false floor so I could "rain on" the frogs all I wanted without having to siphon off the tank. I'll never do anything else again.
- T5 lighting is becoming readily available and it massively helps little plants trying to thrive. Stick with slower growing plants here, aggressive vines will quickly take over with this lighting.
- The "great stuff" method can be found in detail on the forum, I didn't want to bore with details.
- I am thinking of adding a few leucs to the mix in this tank. Just figured I'd be honest, you can chastise me all you would like.

Check out the video on YouTube.com

Happy frogging!

Thanks guys, I've already added some leaf litter and a few extra hides. So far, so good.
