I saw these new Exo Terra vivariums on sale at Petsmart so I picked one up. It is 18x18x18, and comes drilled for a bulk head on the bottom (comes with the bulkhead and tubing), and Monsoon ready. This will be my second build. My first build I learned a lot and made plenty of mistakes. My first vivarium I built I did with GS, silicone, and coco fiber. This build I silicone'd pieces of cork bark to the back wall, and will fill in the tubes and cracks under the cork bark with some GS. I have some sphagnum moss I will jam in-between the cork bark flats to better hold moisture for plants. I learned from the GS background on my first vivarium that it doesn't hold moisture well and makes the moss I'm trying to grow on the background a challenging task. I've attached a picture of the hard scape of the new build. I have not yet decided on what plants or frogs to put in it yet. I currently have a lemon button and green fantasy fern along with some wild mosses in my first vivarium. The frogs in my first build are tinc citronellas. Suggestions feedback welcome.
