Default 18x18x24 Exo Terra

I decided to make move my trio of Varaderos from there 12x12x18 to a 18x18x24 exo terra. I wanted to have an all cork background with cork rounds going across. I made a few mistakes here and there. I should of known of these mistakes since its my third build. Overall pretty content with my build. Things i would do different. Lowering the drainage hole( its starts and 2 inches from the bottom and the hole ends at 3 inches or so. Its pretty high, therefore; its makes my false bottom pretty high.

18x18x24 contains:
False bottom: plastic light diffusers surrounded by hydroton balls.
ABG Mix from NeHerp
Cork flats and cork rounds from Joshs frogs
Drainage system. 1/2"bulkhead with 1/2"ball valve
Live Oak Leave

Exo terra hood w/ Led Lights

Bromeliads: Tropicalplantz.com
Neo Fireball
Neo Chiquita Linda
Neo Olens 696xCopper penny
Neo Flare Up
Neo Olens

I waiting for the moss so i can smother it on the cork flats as well as the put some on the cork rounds. Waiting for some ferns.

I finish taking apart my 12x12x18 that was housing my trio of varaderos. I took the moss and added it to this tank. After i added the trio. When i went to open the door, one of them actually came out at me and landed on the floor. I couldnt believe how fast it moved. Overall, they arent exploring as much. They just stay at one spot. I guess it takes time for them to get comfortable. Im just letting them be.

I will add updated pic as soon as possible.

I like the moss on the log - makes it look like a tree fell in the forest Made any more changes or additions?

Looks great!
