ExoTerra 24x18x18 “Manoa”

This was started back in February.

The background & hardscape is made up of cork tile, cork flat & rounds along with a few leftover driftwood pieces from other planted tank projects. Substrate is composed of coconut fiber, orchid bark & carbon pellets.

This is then layered w/ monkeypod leaves. The plants are all locally sourced with Neoregelia bromeliads from Olomana Tropicals Nursery & Pleurothallid orchids from Tropical Orchid Farm on Maui. There are also a couple of creeping plants & moss patches that were found on hikes in Manoa Valley.

The tank is lighted using Spectral Designs LED panel, misted using ExoTerra Monsoon Multi & ventilated with a DIY 3x3 axial muffin fan/plenum.
The 1st inhabitant was a auratus tadpole found in Manoa. This individual was allowed to develop into a froglet.

The 2nd inhabitant was a rescued auratus adult that was found in a dry industrial area of the island.

The last inhabitant is a female that was grown out in my other smaller vivarium.

Things are looking good.

Glad to see another viv on the forum.

I'm 100% envious of your mini orchids!

Total forgot that there was a vivarium section here. Have been posting PDF related stuff on DB & FB groups.

Am really lucky to have a local mini orchid grower & bromeliad nursery here in the islands. Our State Ag Dept is really stringent with interstate regs.
