Okay, i am about to use a large tank to set up my own population of Terribilis. I will be using the usual tank setup, i.e. leaf litter, bromeliads, water bowl(s), a Petri dish for any eggs that they lay, some tall plants for climbing on, etc.

I have also been considering taking some wet sand and putting a couple mm of water above it to simulate a riverbank. Would this work, or not? Thanks.

I would not use anything smaller than a large pea, as was mentioned before when they eat its fast and furious and small gravel could possibly be ingested. At least that is what I've noticed with my orange terribilis :D

You could roll old school on this one.

Common practise years ago was........

paint the back outside of the aquarium black

lay down a layer of pea gravel, cover the "land" area with spagnum moss and make the pea gravel higher in this area.

wash all the dirt from the roots and grow plants hydroponically in pea gravel

And use sections of cork bark tubes as planters filled with plants for a 3D effect.

A little water in the bottom over the exposed gravel is your water area.


Terribilis really stand out against the black background.
