I recently bought 2 D. leucomelas at the Cincinnati Reptile Show on Sunday:


(probably some of the worst pictures i have ever taken, but i zoomed in with my ipod so i wouldn't disturb them as much.)

I also bought a 44 gallon aquarium from my friend for 20 bucks, i dont have a picture of just the tank, i forgot to take one.

The tank will not have a water feature because the bottom of the tank is tempered glass. But, i put a wall in the background that i could reach behind and put a pump in to drain the tank, the fb is eggcrate and 4 inch PVC pipe for support:

Then, i added the extra wall and made sort of a small "cliff" out of eggcrate:


Then, i added GS, driftwood, and GS lids(plant pots) to make a background:


Then, i carved some of the GS(you can't see much difference in the picture, but there is a lot of difference:


I will be siliconing coco fiber onto the background soon :)

But, i have one question, i bought a S. scutellarioides at a local store and wanted to know if it was vivarium safe, the tag says it is "not cold hardy" does this mean it is tropical?

The tank is finished! :) I forgot about this thread and forgot to take pictures of siliconing the coconut fiber on it:eek:, so here it is planted with the frogs in:

Right side:

Left side:


Here is a list of plants that i have put into the viv:
Peperomia prostrata
Wandering Jew "red"
Wandering Jew "Burgundy"
Neoregelia "Zoe"
Neoregelia hybrid "LF Rainbow"
Neoregelia Hot Pink
Epipremnum aureum

I also have oak leaf litter on the bottom of the tank and have put springtails in it. I plan on getting 2 more leucomelas in the tank in the near future. Any questions, comments, or criticism are welcome!:)

I have tried to grow that plant in a viv as well with no success....they seem ok with the temperature but in my tank all 6 of my plants drowned out (although i did over water it). Though they look great :)
