This will be my 5th build but the first build thread on this site, It is a exoterra 24x18x18 that will hold three Dendrobates tinctorius (Citronella).
This build actually started with the stand for the tank. A family friend and I built a stand that will hold a 24x18x18 on top and a 18x18x24 underneath.
It will be a GreatStuff background, a false bottom, a water feature, cork, wood, and then some...
Here goes-
The stand

The frogs- I am currently putting food directly in front of the smallest due to a slight concern with its size.
It isn't as bad as the picture appears, his blue sides make him look skinnier then the larger ones with yellow sides. (Must be female :p)

The tank so far. Front left will be a small gravel area with very little water above gravel.
Front right will be a removable cover to access the pump.
Back right is a false wall for electrical and tubing.

finished the rough spray foam with wood and cork, still need to shape some areas and run the tubing.
With so much white space pictures are horrible, tried a small video instead.

Anyone know how to post the video in the thread if it is from photobucket?
(I know it can be done through youtube)

One step closer....
I have the substrate in along with some mosses and ferns. I still have to put in the broms/crypto and probably one other plant that I haven't decided on.

My favorite part of this one is that it is completely viewable from two sides.

The first plant is a form of baby tears.
The moss on the right actually had to be removed, it was found at a Home depot but couldn't handle the moisture. The back wall is actually a tag along that I found growing on the soil of a plant at a local nursery.

I will post another video soon, I removed that moss and added some more broms, can't decide when to put in the frogs though. The frogs are smaller and would look lost in the bigger tank, I might let them stay in the growout tank for a little while where I can keep a better eye on them.
