I have been keeping my pair of Almirante in a small quarintine tank for awhile and dont have all the supplies on hand that I would like to build the tank I invision for them in my head. So today I got a really good deal on a huge brom that will take up my entire 30g cube. I plan on just putting them in with that. Im not sure of the species of the brom. Its has a large bright pink floweing clump that looks like a club and is spikey. I plan on cutting out the whole floweing stalk. It also has white bands on the leaves that is almost waxy and comes off if you rub it. This doesnt seem to be a very common practice to use one very large brom per tank. One problem I could see is a lack of variation for tad disposition sites but other then that I think it could be a good home for them. How do you think a tank like that would work for a pair of pums.

bbrock I think you are right about it being an Aechmea. I also figured that the coating on the leaves were there to hold on to extra moisture. But I think that this plant will hold up in a viv. With the tilandsias the plants that have the similar coatings on them are the ones that need a little more moisture then the other types. That being said they are still have a very good potential to rot so mabey this brom is more likely to rot them some other species. I still may give this a try and see how the frogs do with it. At least untill I can buy some more wood and plants I like.
