Keep us up to date with pics and make sure the bottom is made of something strong enough to hold expanding tree roots. i imagine they could break glass over time

Ficus in general don't like their roots to be soaking constantly. They like to be able to dry out a little between waterings, which makes them good for mounting in pockets or on a wall, but not good in the floor of a wet vivarium.
I have had a ficus in a Whites Tree frog viv for 7 years now but it is in the back planted way up high in a terraced shelf that has soil 10 inches deep, so there is a ton of drainage. Plus they tank is fairly well ventilated so it is not as moist as a PDF viv.
