    Low tech 45x28x28 Greenlands

    removed the mirror and replaced it with a black background, gives a nice contrast with the moss. moved some stones around on the right side to give the scape some more space.

    Low tech 45x28x28 Greenlands

    tnx all for the advice, i actually took some of them and changed some stuff around in the tank ;) i removed the branches and yes indeed it does look more peacefull. |I also added a few rocks to the right side to fill up the gap. The biggest change to the eye is the addidition of the mirror...

    Low tech 45x28x28 Greenlands

I wanted a simple low tech tank which still looks kinda cool, i bought the...

    rebuilding my vivarium

    i use no substrate at all, all plants are growing directly on the background or wood, except for the plant in the top left corner, there is a little substrate (normal potting earth). The bromeliads are attached with a nylon panty to the vines.

    rebuilding my vivarium

    you mean what kind of plants go at what height ? i am not someone who does things by the book, so i try all kinds of stuff with the plants. it is not so much the height that makes a difference (although some species need to stay high due to the light they need) but most of them is more about wet...

    doesn't go as fast as i hoped due to other stuff i need to do, but yesterday i had a spare hour so here is a small update i am trying to fit the slate not completely horizontal, because if i do that in the whole viv it will look to artificial, so every few layers i try to tilt the slate a bit...

    rebuilding my vivarium

    Yeah those tricolors :) Daddy Tricolor with tadpoles on his back, on his way to find a place to drop them in the water. they are not poisonous anymore, due to their diet. most of these frogs obtain their poison from the food they eat (fire ants etc) in my vivarium they get normal fruitflies.

    My vivarium (pic heavy)

    have to be honest with you, i don't mist.. at all. All i have is a background dripping system, that drips some water every 3 hours on the background. humidity is ok due to the heated waterpart in the front that evaporates all day long. as you can see, all is growing well

    Double AquaQube "Divided by zero"

    Re: [post vivarium] Double AquaQube "Divided by zero" i guess 2 independent ones would be best, i will try with easycarbo first, and in the meantime in can look for a co2 set i also added some extra moss in the left tank to give it more of a island feel, will post pics tonight.
