After rebuilding my old tank (80x40x50) it still had some issue's.
And i wanted to expand the tank so that was a great excuse to get a new one.

My new tank is 100x50x70 and has special drilled holes for the misting system.
I've put all of my old plants in the new tank and added some new plants aswel.
Unfortunately lost a whole collection of photo's of the tank/setup.
But i still got a few for you guys.

First up the styrofoam

I've used a layer of great stuff and elastopur on top (two component adhesive)
And coated it with a firm layer of peat and moss.

I've also used the same setup as in the last tank.
An aquarium heater on the bottom and a pump for circulation.
Those are housed in a simple plastic container (just for protection).
Bottom of the tank is filled with Hydropellets (rougly translated... just the clay balls... you guys probably know the word for it :) )
On top of that the abg substrate and moss.

Tank is (on the photo) probably 3/4 month running.

Everything is finally growing well.
Frogs are completely happy in the new tank and eating/doing very well.
I'm thinking of expanding the leuco trio with some more frogs, or adding an thumbnail to the tank.
(but not sure yet... still need to do some research)

Some more pics:

Thanks for the reply's

@Gibbs to be honest i don't know if its the mini


I gave my biggest brom (on the right) to somebody with an much larger tank.
And decided to get multiple small broms instead.
i've also added some new plants to the tank.

I'll post an update with pictures within a couple of days

Like i said i got some new plants.
I waited with the pictures to see if the plants didn't die and were growing... and they were :)
I don't have their names right now, but i can look them up if people want to know them.

What a couple of months can do for a tank :)

APRIL

JULY
Full tank shot July 2016 by Vincent Pardoel, on Flickr

Most of the colorful flowers are gone, but at least the tank is starting to look like a nice green jungle.
I rarely trim it to keep it a natural look, only the ficus on the background needs some trimming now and then.

Feeding time (im using an apple to lure in the fruitflies)
Doesn't look very great in the total shot.. but it works.
