    Hello again, friends! The vivarium is COMPLETE! Decided to make this a separate thread from my old one since this is the final product (for now). I named it "Visions of a Cloud Forest" because every single plant comes from South America, with emphasis on those that come from the cloud forests...

    So i've kept some basic geckos and tree frogs for about two-three years. And I wanted to start keeping and (if all goes well) breeding dartfrogs. I have a 20 gallon long that i've put aside to start this endeavour. I had my heart on setting it up vertically. But with further research, Ive...
