Hi, I set up my tank a few weeks ago. It is a 20 gallon high tank and I set it up for a pair/trio of D. Auratus dart frogs. It has LECA clay balls in the bottom offset by weed block, then ABG mix and coco fiber.

The problem is that I think that the whole bottom and half way though the substrate is underwater!:eek::confused: I have been misting the tank to make sure my humidity stayed stable before I got the frogs and so that the plants didn't run out of water.

I also have a running water feature through the middle of my tank with a pond that holds the water. The pond is blocked from the substrate by a piece of plexiglass so I don't think that that is the problem. Also I have a small pump in the water pond that pumps water through a small plastic tube to the "river" in the middle of the tank.

Are the clay balls being under water a problem? Or can I just leave it that way?


Thanks for the help,
Frogilla

You will need to drain out some of your false bottom. I'd recommend leaving an inch or more space between the water and your weed block.

I would also recommend turning off the pump to your water feature when you drain the false bottom and leave it off for a day after you drain the false bottom and check to make sure your water feature isn't leaking.
