Thought I would share my first viv build attempt.

Since this is my first build I decided to not do a waterfeature, eventhough my wife really wanted a waterfall. The lighting will be a T5HO fixture which should arrive next week sometime. The substrate Is going to be ABG mix which I ordered way to much off, good thing I have some Iso/springtail cultures to get going on. I plan on adding a mistking mister system after it has been planted so I can get a better idea where to but the nozzels.

I have had a plant growout tank going since about October, I will post a pic of that later.

Hopefully I will get around to setting up the tank in a few weeks, but I do not plan on getting any frog until after the summer as I will be gone for 3 weeks in July and would rather not have to deal with teaching someone to make FF cultures and feed the frogs. I would just worry to much plus it will give the plants and bugs time to establish themselves before the frogs are introduced.

As for the frogs I plan on getting a group of 4-5 Leucs. which I will QT for the proper time.

If you look in the bottom right corner of the top pic. there is the small whiteish flower from the Anoectochilus albolineatus. When I originally recieved the plant the stem and roots had broken off in shipping. But with alittle rooting hormone it started growing and even flowered after about 2 months in the growout tank.
