i will let you know. i am concerned about one of them. the aerangis citrata is from the same locale as the frogs, but the other aerangis is from Kenya. close, but a bit different climate. i will definitely keep a close eye on it

last night i was goofing around with the camera, and i decided to take some pics of the tank from the "frog's view". actually i took a crapload of pics, which i am going to bore you guys with. i wanted to give everyone views that you normally would only see if you were looking at the tank in person. here we go:"


Ochid Aerangis Citrata is starting to bud!!

These are most excellent! What's the plant growing straight out of the deep end?

I have to admit, when you started I just couldn't see it, but now the finished product is absolutely amazing! Totally beautiful, good job!

Unreal Bill! That's just soooo cool! When it finishes filling in, it's going to look like nothing I've ever seen. I hope that you're happy with it, and it would seem as though you are, bud!! Certainly one of the best I've ever seen.
