Hey, this was my tank few days ago. Right now it's completely gutted as we're moving to a new place. There is a bunch of improvements the next tank will have, like adjustable misting nozzles, CF lights and I will change the background from tree fern to a mix with Weldbond with some tree fern embedded.

Hi Marty,


Glad to see another Canadian on the form. I used your original version of this tank as a reference when designing my first tank. The improvements look great.

Hey Will, glad to hear that you liked it and used it as a reference. The improvements will be done in new version of this tank, the one pictured is still the same one with a bit more growth perhaps. I'm going all out on the new one. I'll post some pics in months to come.

flies in the cup

I believe there is a slice of banana (or other fruit) in the cup or some ff medium in there. I have heard of people doing this in large tanks, so that there is at least one spot where the frogs know they can find flies.

Hey Marty, i was just wondering where you get your broms and other tropicals from. As i understand it, its not legal to ship live animals and plants past the border without some type of permit. Is there a supplier?

Thanks,
M.N

Re: web site

No idea. I posted some pics before on Kingsnake. Someone might have taken them from there.

The cup is for fruit flies. Tank is large and ff go all over the place, plus there are a few small gaps at the top where they can get out and walk on the walls :evil: with the ff medium in the cup they tend to stick near the cup, makes it a bit easier and keeps the escapees in check. It's not really for the frogs to have a hunting spot, they get rediculously overfed by me :lol:, nevertheless they eat from the cup too.

Marty,

I know I have seen your tank on another site, possibly with some additional info, can you put a link up to that site. I think a lot of people would find it helpful.

Sorry to hear you had to tear that down, it looked awesome.

btw...what is the cup on the left hand side of the tank for?

Melissa

You don't work for fish and wildlife services do you, homeland security???? :wink: Aaaaah... you're a fellow Canuck! Nevermind :lol:

I got most of the plants locally at a Canadian version of home depot, called Building Box. They have a ton of various broms year round. I ordered a few plants from Black Jungle too. There are no permits required for plants as long as they're not in soil.

No, I can't complain about tree fern panels, they work great and don't deteriorate that fast. I want to try out some other techniques. Most of the europeans use flevpol or some concrete mixes. Weldbond works great in my other tanks so I'll try it in this larger one next.
