    Yeah I agree, it's absolutely fantastic! Great job! If we had more time and space we would love some enclosures like that, I've invited chronicfatigue over many times to do me some custom designs, do you want to come too?? :D

    Bet your frogs are having a ball in there, looks wonderful, and welcome to the forum! :)

    Looks great! What is the ground cover you have on the land portion? Looks like riccia. Also what did you use to build up your land portion? heck you just want to tell me everything you did :) .

    Thanks for all the feedback guys well to answer all your questions.

    -Toadie78: Well I didnt use too much foilage since whats in there are some pretty hearty and fast growing plants Ill send you a pic in a few months and you guys will be able to see how the plants just take over. I used two common phililodendrons on each side which are very fast growing vine like plants also i used a 35 gallon glass aquarium for this project.
    -chronicfatigue: actually the ground cover is a personal mixture of coco bedding, potting soil, dried green moss and irish moss seed. I soaked it overnight then laid it out I didnt think i would get such great results though! It has a great natural smell and keep my enclosures humidity high.

    Im going to be posting an article on how I built this one for you guys to look through. Building Custom Terrariums is really my passion Im a spounge of knowledge when it comes to tropical plants and the interaction they have with our herps so please if you ever need any tips or want to ask a question thats why im here! Thanks to all for the great welcome! :D

    We need to talk! :) Im a vivatic. I only have two at the moment but am in the works for a a 20 vert and possibly a 100 gallon *fingers crossed* . I have some pics floating around in the PDF forum and the crested gecko forum.

    Where'd you get the Irish moss seed?
