Nice vivys! I have 3 myself, 2 have poison frogs in them, the other has Tree Frogs / a juvenile Terrapin / Guppies in it. If I had your giant 480, I would breed some serious amounts of my Ranitomeya imitator tarapoto poison frogs in there! You could house multiple species of Ranitomeya in there I bet, with out them inner breeding.

Where did you see that I have a 480-gallon tank. Boy I wish I had an enclosure that big--I can think of a few things I would put in it--but I would need to move into a more spacious home. I already have way too many setups in our little house.

I'm sure I would get thoroughly reamed out by the dart frog people if I were to mix species. Mixing frogs is generally regarded as for "experts only", or for zoos, or fools.

The little epiphytic ferns are growing in nicely.



I'll try to get a shot of the whole enclosure tonight. I need to tidy it up a bit.

Here's a shot of the whole thing...



I monkeyed with the terrestrial area a bit more and I'm happy with it now. I added bright red fallen maple leaves and they make an excellent contrast with the green foliage and black background...

That's sick Bro. Absolutely, 100%, mind-boggingly sick, Devin.

I know that you said that you have mini-orchids and you had mentioned the name of the fern in a previous post.....can you show the names of these species on the Manzy in the photo, please?

Standing ovation worthy!!

Thanks Don. I will try to make a picture with the plant names Photoshopped on top.

This setup is very easy to take care of. I just turn the lights on and mist it once per day. The mantis gets one small dubia roach nymph every night.
