I’m not sure how he does it but on instagram studiofiftyfrogs creates really cool looking backgrounds. Id like to figure that out for my second tank.Yes, our designs both look nice! I wish I had gone with the black panel after looking at Socratic Monologue's InSitu build, but alas, too late! I like the way they turned out so far. It will be nice to get some frogs in them in February or so. I have two different types of imitators going in these.
I tried a different substrate approach this time around. It is primarily just a layer of tiny LECA (used for bonsai), topped with Flourite, then leaf litter. I've started to add in some ABG against the back and some other areas I intend on planting with some Philodendrons (from Peru to try and make a biotope sort of tank). I think the lack of ABG is probably contributing to the dryness, and certainly the lack of plants as well. I have only the back vent partially open at this time...but this varies on the day...and I am continually adjusting misting. I don't usually check humidity, but I check daily with a handheld one just to try and get a feel until I can get more stability in these tanks. Trying to see if I can get it to stabilize around 60% or so between misting, but not too worried!
