I actually got this a couple weeks ago, but havent had much time on my hands to get a post up.

It holds 3 Sipawilini Tinc's and 5 Vents right now. The dimensions are 30x28x30 (~110g's). Misting system, Fogger (I will get some pics up of it in the near future... absolutely awesome when the fog rolls down the back and waterfall in 4 different spots), fairly large shallow pond area, and as you can see from the pics Plant Heaven!

To anyone considering getting a vivarium put together soon, definately consider Cindy Dickens from Vivarium Concepts! My wife and I stare at this tank hours a day in awe!



Here is the pics of my entire setup. The tank on the right is In Process. Will be a planted Paludarium when it is finalized.



And of course the Tincs!

It is drilled towards the bottom in the back for a Fluval hook up to pull the water in and out. There is still egg-crating across the bottom (except over the pond obviously) raising the substrate above the water level, so it is "sort-of" a false bottom.

As for the Vents and Tincs together, so far they are completely peaceful. The Tincs are full adults (3-yrs old) and the Vents are Juv's. With that configuration I expected to see hostility in the very beginning if ever at all, so I am confident now that they will not mind each other. A couple of the Vents even eat right next to the Tincs in the mornings, within inches of eachother and neiter mind the company. The Vents mainly climb up the glass sides and hang out up in the higher Brom's toward the back, while the Tincs stay up close to the front and around the logs. There is actually an entire side of the tank (the right side) that I very rarely see a frog go to.

I will take some pics pretty soon of all the other features, like the fogger and mister going!

I had the tank custom made (acrylic) from a local aquarium manufacturer. All 3 of those tanks were built by them. I was limited on how wide to make it because of the entrance way to the kitchen to the right of all the tanks. that is why it isnt a perfect cube 30".

As for the wood, you would have to contact Cindy at Vivarium Concepts. She did all the planting, and decorations. There is a really cool piece of wood to the right that stands up like a plateau (sp?), and almost looks like a Termite mound in its shape and texture.

No frogs in that one :)

Just Discus and small cardinals or neons in the bottom half, and I will have some Broms, Ivey, and Pothos hanging and crawling up the background. It was originally meant for turtles, but the background piece ended up taking up too much space and the aquatic plants suffered because of it from too little light, making me start all over.
