This is my new tank that I got from a friend who was getting rid of it. No cracks and dimensions are: 36" long 20" tall and 12.5" deep. I know it's not very deep, but I just got some new driftwood, and drew out a plan.




















Here is one plan layout I made (It is on it's side, the wood would be sticking out from the left side of the tank across) Sorry for any confusion, but here it is:





Thanks,

Will

I am thinking of doing a build inspired by The Peninsula. The left side will be foamed, and there will be a big driftwood centerpiece.

Yes, a bit small, but that's why I decided to foam the side.

Haha that's what I said. That could come in handy numerous times.

Yes. I was thinking about making a kind of hill, seeing as though if I have all this space, why not do something creative?

I live an hour away from Josh's Frogs and 30 mins away from their plant supplier, LittleFrog Farm, so I am holding off on plants and moss until I get the whole tank set up.

Here is the last of my supplies needed:
-Black Silicone
-Eco Earth (coco shaving stuff)
-ABG (how much should I buy? I have one gallon already, so should I get one more gallon or two, or what?_
-Weed Block\other terrarium liner

Update!!!

I don't know if it will hold, but I just foamed. The tank is just on it's side for foaming, and I'll turn it back once the foam had dried. I forgot to take pics of the siliconing, but here's the foam.







All of my supplies:

Wow, that's a lot of room. If you folllow the thumb rule of 1 dart for every 10 gallons, you could fit just about 4 darts in that thing. Or you could just have one dart in the cage, and it would have alot of room to itself, which depending on the species,(leucomelas, Auratus) it would get kind of lonely, because they like to hang around in groups.

Nice tank, though. What kind of dart are you planning on putting in it?

Leucs and auratus don't get "lonely". Frogs don't have emotions like us, and besides breeding, don't really care being alone. Leucs and auratus are usually put into groups because people like to see more frogs in their viv, and frogs like leucs and auratus tend do better in groups than say tincs.

I'm not sure what I am going to put in it, but for now, It'll be my growout tank. Eventually, I'm gonna want some tincs or auratus, since I already have some leucs.

Added the substrate in. Here are the layers in order:
Hydroton
Odd Substrate Barriers
ABG
Leaves
Some Moss

im still new to this, but i think it would be easier to silicone and cover the foam without the substrate as you can tip it on its side..... just a thought, i love the idea of the background being on the small side!
