My 180 gallon Vivarium

I did some spring cleaning this week, so I figured now would be a good time to make a thread about my big ass vivarium. The dimensions are 36x24x48. It currently houses 2 Ranitomeya imitator "Baja Huallaga." They've successfully raised at least one froglet, but I haven't seen him for a couple of months (not surprising given the size). The tank has been set up since June 2011.

I'm doing a 365 day photo project, so I'll be taking lots of pictures of it and hopefully a freshwater riparium soon

Is that a mister up top? Would you mind sharing some info on that. That whole setup looks amazing.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

Sure It's a Mist King setup. There's a reservoir and a pump connected to a timer below the tank. I've been using them for 6 years or so and they work amazingly well. The pumps can even run bone dry without getting damaged now, which is a huge plus.

I run it at at 2 one minute intervals each day. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon.

That is amazing. The frogs are soooo cute.

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.
