    Thank you for the compliments! :)

    Ron, tillandsia's don't fare too well in dart frog vivs, it is hard to get the humidity right for both the tillandsias and frogs (frogs like it way higher than tillandsias). You have alot of options for epiphytes though. I may be getting pum's for this viv, I haven't decided.

    Joe, if you don't have time its all the more reason to set one up. :D Once established, they're maitanance free, aside from trimming, but I look forward to doing that.

    They look great, but I'm still trying to figure out why there is a bowling ball in the D. Auratus Viv. lmao

    I wish i could make something like that for my blue-tailed glider but i wouldn't know where to begin. can dart frogs make any use of all that vertical space? or is that area just for the plants?

    They look amazing Cody! You do great work. I can't wait to see pics of the frogs in there when you get them... They're going to have a good life with you!!!

    It depends which dart frogs you get, some need the height some need a more terrestrial viv.
    Yeah I know, but like Jade said I wouldn't know where to begin. I want some day gex (don't worry rach not just yet :D ) so I wouldn't mind having a go at putting a nice display viv together for them.

    Great looking vivs, specially the crested's =)
    Hope I have some new pics to share soon, I'm going out today to buy the rest of the plants I need for my big terrarium.

    Ps: almost forgot, the tall ones are 20 ga tanks like you have told us in the other thread right?

    Thank you for the compliments.

    Thumbnail species of dartfrogs almost all occupy the vertical space, no problems for me, I really wanted some thumbs :) .

    I should have included sizes. The cresty tank is a 20, the new vert is either a 25 or 30, and the dart frog is a 10.

    Joe and Jade, are you guys serious you don't know where to begin? Begin with me! :) I'll get you started.

    Ric, you too, get to work. =D
