    So I recently got a 36x18x18 vivarium and I looking to make it a nice Leucomela display tank. Its a front opening viv, but it doesnt have that front vent exo terras and zoo meds do. Previous owner used it for a bearded dragon, and I think its from the Petsmart "Thrive" brand desert terrarium kit...

    I am scaping a tank thats 2' long x 1' wide x 8" tall. It's an open air tank that has a water section. Looking for ground cover plants that I can use? Would like not to use moss if possible. Was looking into hydrocotyle sibthorpioides and hemianthus callitrichoides but although this soil is very...

    I am new to this site and have had 2 Dendrobates tinctorius for about a year. They seem happy and healthy, but they keep going in the water for a day or so at a time. The tank is in the 70's and I mist it every day. From what I have read, it is not normal for dart frogs to spend much time in the...

    Just finished and planted some stuff. Peperomia Orba on the bottom and Bromeliad Felix and Wild Tiger. Moss up top that is half dead, I think it will come back. I think I may take away the bromeliad on the ghost wood, just not sure where to place it. I am also worried about the bromeliad in...

    Hello all. I've been scouring the internet in hopes of finding an answer, but can't find anything! I'm trying to figure out how to modify one of the basic black metal mesh tank lids to include a door or other access panel type thing. I HATE having to take off the security brackets and then...

    Been a while since I have done a build and shared :) Picked up this EXO a while back and had my Sonoran Desert Toad in it until I traded it off. Been sitting in the garage since then. I brought it in, built a stand, and cleaned it up. So far have stripped the screen tops out and built the...

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what is going on with one of my tanks. It's an empty tank, that I was going to use for a build soon. But I have run into problems getting it clean! There is what looks like water-spots and water line buildup all over this thing... and nothing I...

    Hi, After being on and off (mostly reading) on this forum, I wanted to share my custom built tank. I kept many frogs and lizards years ago back in Belgium and now (after moving to the US), I picked up the hobby again. My favorites were always iguanas and dart frogs and I'm a bit of a nature...

    Hello everybody, A few months ago I started building a vivarium for a Thumbnail PDF After finishing the foam background I decided that I should get an easier PDF to take care of. I built the tank and everything was finished today. My tank looks like it could house many different species of frogs...

    Hi folks, I am currently building a 24x24x48 inch (length, width, height) glass tank made of quarter inch (6 mm) glass. I don't plan on putting much water in it, I want it to be part land part water, with maybe 10 gallons of water maximum in the bottom. I am unsure what to do when it comes to...

    I am debating about getting a 150 gallon tall tank. The ones that are 4ft by 2ft by 31 in. If I get one I was curious if anyone has done a DIY and made one vertical or if it is unheard of to cut off the front glass piece and make a sliding door. I have thought about making a tank from scratch...

    So essentially I am trying to create a half land half water vivarium/paludarium with live plants for my Crested Geckos as I am wanting to put fish into the water. Basically I am trying to make it seem as natural as possible as well as aiming to include a small water feature. The tank that I have...

    I just recently got another dart frog! :D A new auratus, but was wondering if they prefer to be in groups? They only had one at the time when I purchased him, but I don't want him to feel lonely! Does he need a buddy?:confused:

    :) I'm looking at some leucomelas, and found a great deal for three of them. One male, two females. Would a 12 x 12 x 18 be too small for them? What if there is lots of hiding places? :confused::confused::confused: Thanks, Chris :D

    So next weekened I plan on picking up a trio of thumbnails for my new tank. The only problem is that the tank isn't finished yet :( I do have a 20g tall tank that is planted and I could keep them in there, but i would prefer not to. Where could I keep them for a week-ish while their permanent...
