So, I started this project a few months ago to keep a thumbnail species (aka extremely small) of poison dart frogs. However, money got tight so for right now the only inhabitants are springtails (little white bugs that eat mold and thrive in high humidity environments).
Anyhow, here is how it looked in the beginning:
It then progressed into this:
And finally, here we are today:
The driftwood waterfall is covered in riccia, as well as some of the soil, along with frogmoss to the right.
Here's a view up the waterfall:
Bromeliads sprouting pups:
My favorite bromeliad (It was ugly and half dead when I got it, now it has this awesome blood red color)
Masdevallia pyxis orchid sprouting new leaves:
Another favorite brom, this one holds a ton of water and would be great for the frogs to raise tadpoles in:
View of the whole vivarium, looking up from the small pond section:
Who says dead moss won't come back to life?
And now, for the best part.... the fog machine.
After several minutes the misty fog begins to settle and gives the vivarium this really awesome evening effect:
Well, that's my little vivarium (And the reason I'm coming back to freshwater after a long hiatus into the reefing world.)
