Since Petco is having their $1 per gallon sale, you might wanna consider 20Gs.... only $5 more per tank over the usual price of a 10G, and the frogs will definitely use the extra room. Nice start!

Nice work. What light is that you have running? I like how you plumbed the tanks for drainage - siphoning is a pain in the butt to me.

running a lithonia lighting t8 with 6500k GE natural light bulbs. love it so far, runs alot cooler than most lights ive had, and it was $40 at home depot with a nice black finish. and ya I wanted all my vivs to have good drainage in mind so water wouldnt build up with heavy misting. so with the Diy ABG mix, large Hydrotron layer,and the drain the soil stays perfect.

Would you mind providing more details on how you set up those drains? In particular what type of bulkhead you used, the size and where you found them? It looks very, very clean.

yes of course, super easy to do. I bought these http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/store/1-4-push-connect-bulkhead-tank-adaptor.html

drill a 3/4" hole where you want your water level to be.

apply silicone around the hole to create a gasket.

assemble the bulkhead let it cure

take some 1/4" irrigation tubing, you can get it anywhere. and then just push it in the bulkhead, then run the tube into a container, just make sure the tube is always lower than the bulkhead.

and thats pretty much it. I just have a thick later of hydrotron in the back and slowly slopes down towords the front till theres no hydrotron so it creates alittle "bog" area. The moss is taking off so it should look good!
