My humble 10g vivarium.

First of all, an admission. I'm not really into frogs, I'm not a fan of them or that interested in them, but my sister bought some Fire Belly Toads some time ago, and they were in a crappy plastic container. Soon enough she wasn't that interested in them, so I decided they deserved a better place to live. Ever since them I have been taking care of them, here's my vivarium.

Without flash.


With flash, so the rocks can be seen better.


The front is pretty, the back is ugly.


Mosquito in mid air, wish I could say I did it on purpose, but it was pure luck.


I think this would make a cool album cover for a frog band.


Lovely skin.

There's three frogs in there, I haven't really named them. I figured them being nameless reaffirms my almost totalitarian control over the vivarium.

Beautiful frogs! I at least want to say that it is very admirable of you to adopt them and give them a better home. Karma points to you!

Very cool thread, not to mention, very entertaining commentary.

What kind of glue did you use for the rocks?

Is there mechanical filtration or just the waterfall?

I used GE Silicon I (100% silicone), it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than aquarium silicone which is exactly the same thing, except they get to put "aquarium" in front of it and they overcharge accordingly. I let it cure for 2 days, just to be safe.
No mechanical filtration, weekly water changes. The water isn't that important since I don't have any fish in it, but I do have some snails that somehow got in there. They had tadpoles once though, and after they reached a certain age, they would die, so next time I'll move the tadpoles to a different tank.
