Yeah, its a staghorn fern. What you see in the pic are only the shield fronds, not the antler fronds. Way way way too big for a viv

it will fit just fine if you get a big enough viv. last large staghorn i saw was about 36x36x24 inches in size. i bet with judicious frond removal you could keep one under 18 inches for a long time.

plus trimming the fronds isnt a great idea. By the time the larger fronds are formed, the smaller ones will be long gone. And as you can see from that pic, the shield fronds get massive. I wish people wouldnt give advice if they dont know the plant
