And this is my tiny tank where I'm keeping my vents.
The size is about 20/20/20 inches. Lighting: two 14 Watt tl's (white daylight-Arcadia). For the decoration I used a layer of clay pearls :roll: (can't remember what it's called in English) covered with peat, on the bottom. The sides are covered with cork. For planting I used Ficus pumila, Ficus montana, Catopsis morreniana, Psygmorchis pusilla, a tiny fern I don't know the name of and several species of tiny ferns and mosses that just start growing spontaneous all over the peat, cork and wooddecoration. The episcia dianthiflora is replaced by another fern like the one on the left. Also placed another Catopsis (bromeliad) on the left and the right of the tank, so now there are two groups of them.

Thanx.
About the moss...I didn't touch it at all, it just started growing all over the place due to spraying and light.

Awesome. I dont know what you mean by tiny tank though, a 20" cube seems like plenty of space for vents.

Nathalie,

Great tank! Just curious, but how long did it take to grow in thick like that? How much pruning do you do to keep it looking healthy but not overgrown? You did a great job! If this is small, do you have pictures of some of your 'large tanks'? :shock:

I've got this one for almost 5 years now. I think it was within a year or so, it looked really green. To make sure it looks neat, I just have the Ficus pumila pruned every weekend, about 2 inches. I call this tank tiny, 'cos I noticed most people on the Dutch discussion board owe tanks that are 10 times the size as my own. I only keep 2 species: D. ventrimaculatus & D. tinctorius nominat. Next to that I have Phelsuma v-***** comoraegrandensis and Lygodactylus kimhowelli. I keep all of them in tanks of similar size.

These are the only pictures I have of the frogs (at the moment), the other ones are geckopics.

Nathaly,

That is the nicest little set up I have ever seen. I showed the pic to my girlfriend and she said that vivarium is huge. LOL :shock:
