Thanks for sharing your experience. I did wind up installing a pvc pipe through the false bottom.Having a port to access is way better than lifting a barrier. Somehow I had the foresight to do that with the first one I built and neglected to do the next several. I lost two frogs that way. One azureus burrowed down in the spot I inserted a siphon and an imitator did the same.
I did a tank tear down to remove substrate and clean it up. I didn’t have a port to insert tubing to drain it in there before so I got a bigger seed pod and drilled it out to 1/4” and fixed to the egg crate so I can stick the tubing in. You can see in the lower left hand corner. Not a large enough hole for leucomelas to squeeze into.

Got some pothos in there. If I can ever find some cork tubes I'm going to add a few. You can't tell from the picture but the background has numerous nooks, ledges, and recessed "cave" areas for them to hide. Not all the plants in there will stay I'm growing some out for a 24x18x18 for tincs. Thanks for the ideas and feedback.My leucs climb and scramble all over everything, and do hang out in huts even when not breeding. They climb the glass and hang out by the misters.
If you do add more plants, consider something large-leaved that they can both climb on and hide under. Even pathos or similar is a great plant for leucs.
They are busy guys -- give them a playpen.
