It's not that bad, I set this up in the middle of 2nd semester, and the bulk of the work was getting everything and putting it together. It's honestly like 4 minutes a week plus the 2-3 hours of setup. Just follow the rules of K.I.S.S. and you should be alright.

In our dart frog vivs we used the cat litter method for a back wall, but trying to do that in yours would be walking backwards. I have seen folks use a variety of things for the back wall, but some things can catch on your darts small toes and cause injury (they are surprisingly great climbers, but terrible swimmers and will hurt themselves on anything possible). Maybe silicone some precut corkboard in place? I'd certainly suggest a glass top (silicone it in place) to maintain humidity and keep in the fruit flies. They even escape our silicone lids somehow and we had a single tank that was not done and it drove us insane. Darts can eat quite a few so there are always errant flies making their way out. Viv looks great and I really like the layout and design. maybe try some Tillandsia mounted on that wood.

Thanks for the suggestions! Right now with the summer weather, I keep the light off, so the plant in the back is actually weaving along the back wall! It looks so cool; I'll have to take some pictures soon with my new tripod and camera!

Nevermind. I just got some Manzy Wood and I realized I have an extra tank so I'm gonna turn this into a 10 gallon planted tank/6 gallon Vivarium thread. If anyone can, please move this tho the Tank Journals thread.
