10 gallon vivarium.

Hello there.

I set up a 10 gallon vivarium this weekend. Right now there is nothing really in it, just some pill bugs and some crickets. Hoping to get some type of terrestrial frog such as dart frogs or solomon island leaf frog. We'll see how it goes.

Well thanks for reading! I will update it when anything happens to it.

Looks good! What are you using for lighting and such?

Should of cleaned it up a bit before taking pics haha.

On the blueish side its a 27 watt desk lamp, and the orangey side is a 50 watt basking spot lamp. Keeps it nice and toasty at 78*F

Nice to see you again Jake

Do you have a filter or under gravel area for the water? How do you keep the water looking so good and not being stagnant?

I change it every day. I used to have a small powerhead in there but the light broke so I had to take it out cuz it might shock someone/something.

Nice looking setup! Its gonna look awesome with some animals in there. If you could get the water/land ratio up a bit more, fire bellied toads would love it! 40% water and up and the toads will be happy. They are cheap too! Only like 6-10 bucks a piece.
