A ball python needs, nor wants in most cases, a elaborate terrarium. A dark tub will work just fine. If you really want to spoil him, get him a rack system all for himself. Nearly everyone in the...

What did you use to cover up the egg crates? Is that all great stuff?

Also, I suggest some mosss for the caves. Java would look good both in and out of the water, so long as it is wet. Also, are...

Are there any larger fish that do not eat their young? I know endlers don't... Dwarf Cory's don't either.

Come to think of it, are there any easy to breed larger catfish that don't eat eggs or fry...

Nice tank. I love the branches, where did you get them?

It would look great with a few shrimp in it ;). Is there anything in it now?

Wonderful tank! Lucky fish.. I'd live in it ;)

What filter are you running? Also, what lighting do you have to sustain all of that?

Any "pond plants" would do well. Amazon swords would flourish if you wanted something fast growing, but be prepared to prune aggressively.

While I agree that darts rarely do drown, I stick with the old opinion: that darts do not like water (which they don't, imo).
Most people say that they are poor swimmers, which is not especially...

Also, I second artillery fern (not actually a fern). It grows like mad via its seeds, which it sprays everywhere, but grows great when wet. It would look interesting growing on the waterfall.

From my understanding only the "root" and waterfall would be terrestrial? That is hardly enough floorspace for a dart. Also, darts do not benefit at all from water. They can drown because they do not...

I could get twice as much as I'd need, and go over it twice; then silicone/glue it down.

This would be cheaper by far then any paint, and would be easier to work with.

I wonder if it would be possible to attach pond liner to all wooden surfaces and then make the background over it? This would be much easier, and would look better (as well as being a bit cheaper).
