I've had my Vivarium in operation for over 5 years now.
Does anyone know a way to remove the white, mineral deposits from the inside glass? I've tried some commercial cleaners (Python, Jungle) with no real success. I've also tried a razorblade, but that didn't work either.
60 Gal Tank (drilled holes in bottom for filter plumbing and soil drainage
Front to back 2/3 water, 1/3 land. Land mass is 11 inches high separated by plexiglass with shale glued front.
Fluval 303 filter
Heater for water
Home made canopy with Power compact lighting (incandescent bulb for sunup & sundown effect)
Power misting system
PC controlled environment (using X-10)
(sorry, I don't have the names - all came from local home depot)
palm type fern
philodendron (really fast growing...almost a mistake)
varius others (I can provide descriptions if anyone is interested)
Fire belly Newt
Stays on land:
Tiger-leg Tree frog
Up in the leaves:
Big Eyed Tree frog
Red Eyed Tree frogs.
It is amazingly self sufficient...I change water every 2-3 weeks and add crickets. Occasionally drain the soil and once in a while change the filter. That's about it.
