Hi guys. This is my first post, but I have read the forum for years. I finally got a 29 gallon tank and have made the false bottom from egg crate, and covered it in window screen. I bought some drift wood pieces on ebay yesterday and already have Great Stuff, black silicon, and coco fiber. I'm going to be buying everything else I need as I go along building it.

I'm going to do a drip wall over a piece of really cool drift wood I found into the pond.

I'm not sure which darts I want to get yet. I'm split between azureus and leucomelas. I really like the bold, two toned color patterns, and they are both good beginner frogs. I would only get a pair of azureus, but could I comfortably put 3 leucs in there?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I got my driftwood in and bought some cork. Here are pics of the final layout I have decided on.







from the top, down


All I have to do is clean the wood, and apply silicone where I don't want to see the Great Stuff on the glass.

I've decided that I will eventually be getting leucs. They are more active, will use the vertical space more, and if I buy 3 unsexed,I have an 87.5% chance of getting at least a pair and a 50% chance of a trio.

So what does everyone think so far?

Looking great so far, I like the drift woods that you used. For my first frogs I had originally planned on getting D. azureus, but got two D. tinctorius, they are extremely easy and are always hopping around. I believe that they are pretty similar so I say go with either one. Keep it up!

It looks like your new habi is coming along quite well!!! I love how you outlined your water/land separation with corkbark/log. I can imagine the moss growing down to the water now! Can't wait for some more updates as I've already starting spinning some inspirations thru my mind.

I want to put some emersed plants in, but haven't really thought about what kind, anubias nana does look good though, and I already have some java moss that I plan on putting in there.

I plan to put some cherry shrimp in there when I have the plants added.

Thanks for all the compliments and suggestions guys! I ordered some anubias eyes, it's supposed to be a smaller variety. And no pics of the water feature. I haven't gotten my filter in the mail yet. but here are some updated pics.
