I've been wanting to set up something like this for long time now and finally got around to doing it.
It's supposed to be a "cool climate rainforest setup" and is being kept moist at all times. It's been setup for a month now and things have started to grow in.
Substrate consists of:
- 2 layers of unused UGF filter plates
- layer of pebbles
- bit of charcoal
- spaghnum moss as drainage divider
- planting medium is a mixture of topsoil, peat, sand and potting mix.
Everything is draining and growing well and i'm planning to add some epypheptic plants in a week or 2 to add some kind of colour or contrast.
My only question is .... What to stock it with!
I'm leaning towards lizards or something similar but most that i've seen at petshops are from dry habitats.
I've considered frogs, but i think their call would annoy me quiet a bit..
It should be a small animal so it'll fit the scape and not outgrow the 3ft tank..
So, whats your opinion? advice?
Here are some pics.:
