Viv Question/Idea for drain

856 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Jon Mason
Hey there everyone ! first time poster, just got into frogs, dont have any yet, gtting viv set up.

i was thinking about using a pvc pipe to make a sort of cross at the bottom of the viv, with a pipe that sticks up through the false bottom, and the top of the piep is capped, and hidden under like a coconut hut or something simialar.

also i will be putting cobalt tincs in there.

or is there a better method? this seemed easiest to me. also i will probably be getting an auto mister such as the mist king

Thank you for input !

(pics of your setup would be super great if possible)

EDIT: also, recommended depth for a false bottom, it will be flat w/ no water features. Thanks again...thinking 3 inches?

Your false bottom only needs to be a couple of inches to allow the water to drain through your substrate, so 2 inches is fine. Pvc pipe is a great idea. just notch the bottom so water can get in for a syphon if your tank water level gets too high. You most definitely want a cap on it though so your frogs dont fall in. That would be bad.
