here's my middle sized viv finished, there are 4 auratus hiding in the brom... they are a little shell shocked from the move i think, but they eat really good...

tell me what you think?
i just got a 24 inch 55 watt light from coralife today and man is that
bright i just hope with the heat wave we are having here
the temps won't skyrocket...

wow, that turned out really better than i thought it would (no offense)!

I really like the flat area with rocks, hopefully the frogs will hang out there so you can watch. Maybe if you get a creeper or a vine it will take in the cracks on the rocks, that would be really wicked!

Great job!

its always a possibility that anything we use can leach bad things into our tanks...
i've used it with turtles before, never seemed to have a problem
the real things that worry me more in the tank are pesticides in the plants
(you can wash 'em, but did u really get all of it?) and things like
liquid nails(which i used extensively) i ran hot water through the waterfall for a few days, and did about 4 water changes before adding the dirt and
plants...

it is a fairly porus stone, so i wouln't doubt that it will leach something into the water, but i have also seen plants grow up and through these flagstones and crack them in half and grow over them.

Might want to test the water at a pet store for the first several months just to be sure and do water changes just to be super sure.

i'll check it out, get my water tested and stuff,
at my parents house they have moss growing all over it,
so i have a gut feeling its pretty much a nuetral rock,
but with anything its composition varies region to region...

It looked cool before but now with it planted it is even better. I hope mine ends up that nice!

P.s:
they are a little shell shocked from the move i think, but they eat really good...
I don't mean to be a prick but "they eat really" well, not good. I just couldn't help but notice, but hey I can't spel. :D

20 gallons of space and they choose to spend 85% of their time
