12 gallon cube viv...

Set this tank up as a toad tank a few months back. Im looking for some opinions because it doesn't look quite right to me, i think i need some ground cover and some type of background. For lighting, Im running 2 x 9 watt 6700k bulbs.

you can use moss for a ground cover. or some emmersed carpet plant if you humidity is high enough (like glosso or HC or riccia).

For the back I would suggest either cork, or fern tree root. Fern tree root looks really good as a back drop and you can glue epiphytes to it or dead moss. My snake tank has a fern tree root background that has been taken over by an ivy plant.

You can get it at a rep specialist or at blackjungle.com. It cuts with a hacksaw really easily.
