Looking good!

What are you using for the false bottom?

What species are you planning on adding? Mixing is generally frowned on but if you aren't breeding you can get away with it. I'd suggest looking at species that occupy different area's of the vivarium.

Also one note: Darts can't really swim. Make sure you add in a way for them to get out of the pond if they fall in otherwise they can drown.

Keep at it this is awesome! I've got four vivs and want to some day to a large one.

For the false bottom I'm using the clay stuff that Tropical Eco's recommended and like using. EccoTerra or something like that.  They say its similar to repasthatch or something like that.  In my experiments with it it seems like once its wet, it just lets the water run past it. In my setup it, it will then drain to the corners of the tank where there are the old overflow holes.

As for species, on the ground side, I'm thinking red galacs and maybe a type of tinc, which those two shouldn't cross breed. For the "tree" side, I'm trying to find a way to afford some Fantastica reticulated or fantasica nominal.  Only one species of thumbnail since they can all interbreed.

For them to get out of the pond, I will have some driftwood in the back corner that breaks the surface and touches the corner.

Got the lights on it and am currently printing my fan holders.  The first fan holder I printed works perfectly!

Its done.  I'll need to add in the leaf litter but its out of stock from where I already paid for it :(

But other than that, its done. Now to let the plants grow in before I add the frogs.

Very impressive. Too bad there's not a frog aquarium society for you to share this with. Tongue

Its true, but I was a couple of feet away and the had the protection of glass! Haha. I think one day I will have some...there seems to be a very natural segway from saltwater to frogs and vice versa.

Great work with your build. Looks fantastic. Where did you get your plants?

Also have you thought about being on Reef Tour? That's an amazing tank and unique. Would be great to see!

That would be pretty cool, the bad thing is that I live in Idaho Falls :(.  But if there is ever one that comes all the way over here I'd be open for it haha.
