|Taari||flightless fruit flies, Drosophilla melanogaster. I bought a culture and some fly food and make up a few new cultures every couple weeks, seeding the new culture with flies from the old on right after it blooms (bloom = the larvae pupate and turn into flies). I dust them with vitamin powder and drop them into the tank and the frogs nom them up. I also have the substrate seeded with springtails, which keep it clean and the frogs eat the adults.|

Now that it's been a little while and I just introduced lil' Rahzek to the 40 gallon tank, I thought I would update the journal. All the plants are doing fabulously. Some of the ferns died back, but are growing in nicely now. I had to remove one orchid because it was losing lots of leaves, but the 3 left in the tank are doing very well.
To note, there is some foam at the bottoms of both waterfalls. IT IS NOT SOAP IN THE WATER. I've been keeping fish for years, I know better than to let things get contaminated with soap. I believe there is some protein in the water from the organic compounds that is foaming because my waterfalls splash. They bubbles dissapear when I shut off the pump and when I touch them, unlike soap bubbles.
The newest leaf on one fern coming in slightly orange, indicating that my light is pretty high.
My aquatic cryptocoreynes converting to emmersed very happily
New leaves on one of the broms. They are all growing new leaves.
Hygrometer showing 90% humidity in the back corner even with the 2.5" wide screen door going across the front of the tank.
Phal. equestris working on opening up.
A new growth on my Masednellia cuspidata jewel orchid
And finally lil' Rahzek checking out his new home.
Also, here is a decent shot of his front toes to show how large they are getting and heart shaped.

|Taari||My friend got in a shipment of 10 different types of mini bromeliads, and like 100 assorted small terrarium/house plants, and I happened to be in the store when the box came, so I helped her unpack it and got first dibs on plants, lol.|

|MGap||wow this looks amazing!! Excellent choice with the bromeleads, they always have such a tropical feel to them. I love how you have them in several colors.|

OK! Photobucket was being uncooperative the past couple days, but it seems to be functional again, so here are some more pics.
Just have to figure out how to block of the 1" gap in the glass on one side of the tank so the frogs don't escape and I can add the female to the tank. The male will stay in QT for about a month before I introduce him.
