Welcome back! I love the red broms, where did you get em? Any idea what will be housed in there? I'd toss some leaf litter in there but I really like the assortment of plants!

In addition to needing leaf litter, i think some of those plants are going to outgrow the space... Staghorn ferns get huge and the alocasia will start reaching for light.

Welcome back! The tank looks really nice, I like all of the nice brom colors. My only suggestion would be to put leaf litter over the dirt/coco-fiber section because the frogs can get stressed when the dirt sticks to them.

Thank you all for making me feel at home again. I’m def going to take your advice on the leaf litter.

Laylow- The broms came from a local nursery that specializes with assortments of broms and air plants, even some orchids as well.

Uniceros- Your right about the plants overgrowing the area. I got so excited shopping for plants that I forgot about the space I was working with. I guess ill adjust the tank as it grows.

Reef_Haven- The substrate is a brick of coco, I did boarder the outside with sphagnum so the substrate doesn’t fall into the pond area. I also removed the soil from all the plants prior to transplanting them in the new substrate I created.


As for frogs, I will be housing a pair of tincs so if anyone has a pair for sale please message me with some info. I would like to purchase within the next 2 weeks.

Also, make sure you have fruit fly proofed the vivarium, like no-see-um netting over the vents and sealing the top of the enclosure by putting a piece of glass over it to keep up the humidity. (Didn't know if you did this, couldn't quite tell from the pictures) Good luck and welcome back into the hobby!
