I started with this custom 58 gallon tank. I couldnt find a lid for it so i custom build one. After numerous times of watching videos and going on forums, this is what it came out to be. I waited about a month until i got my first three Leucs. Three months after i decided to get another 3 leucs, but this time i pick up "chocolates".

Awesome tank. I like the way you created levels with the wood and still left open space in the front of the tank. Can't wait to see it grown in a bit. Leuc heaven for sure!

Great looking tank. Just one word of caution: be careful when you trim the Diffenbachia, it has irritating sap. I've never used one in a dart viv, but I had some in a Polypedates dennysi tank and whenever they would break a leaf it would get on them and they were clearly uncomfortable. It took me a while to figure out what the problem was. They would rub themselves furiously, at first I thought they were shedding, then I got some of the sap on my hands when I was doing a little trimming and it all became clear. The leucs shouldn't be heavy enough to snap the leaves, but if yours are like mine then they will be crawling all in it, so just be aware when you trim. Good luck.

Very nice tank. I love the levels you created using the wood as an edge. Nicely done. I hope it works out for you. Again...nice job and look forward to more pics

The picture is a bit small so I can't tell, but are you only using gravel for substrate?
Lol, Nope. What i basically did was a false bottom and put gravel around the edges and a little on top. I forgot to put a divider so my substrate doesnt mix in with gravel, o well. But i put another two inches of substrate. I will post of my recent fixes.

Looks really good!!! Just curious (sorry if you said this somewhere) but is the whole bottom layer gravel or do you have a false bottom behind it? Just wondering cause if its all gravel that has to weigh A TON!! Lol

Beautiful tank regardless!! :D
