Thanks Ann.

Here's what my tank looked like last week. Still working on it. Will be adding more plants and more work on the water fall.

I'd love to see other member's tanks :) ...

OOLAM8R, the moss that is hanging is the stuff you can buy from aquariums, like hair. Not sure what type of moss if on the right but it's growing on rocks.

Ann, love the fig! I can't wait to get one, going to check out bunnings end of this week for sure

The rocks sit out of the large content of water, however there's a water fall that runs over some parts of the rocks.

Hello all
i finally finished my frog tank and thought i would share it with you all
all i have done is used 2 X 3 ft tanks and put them together and put sliding glass doors on the top tank
it is all sealed and stuck together using fish tank silicon

Image

the lower left and side is used for crickets it is open enough for the crickets to get out with out the frogs getting in it makes for a good cricket breeding area

OOLAM8R what have you used in your tank is it straw

any feedback would be great
regards
Bill

Looks good.
I like the cricket idea too.
Looking at yours makes me think - would those flat plants that you nail to flat bits of wood grow in a terrarium? Cant remember what they are called.

If it is my background you mean - it is basically made out of foamafil with pieces of Malasian driftwood embedded in it and then covered in brown/black silicon with peat moss, orchid bark, dirt, coconut husk dirt & anything else I could find smashed into it while it was wet.

my new terrarium almost finished

Postby chelc » Fri Apr 25, 2008 12:50 am

Hi everyone, I just pretty much finished my 3ft Terrarium for my 4 baby Northern Green Tree frogs. 8) All that is missing now is a waterfall which I am waiting to arrive. Once it arrives its going to be put on the left corner at the back or the terrarium. So I thought I would post a picture for all of you to see. Let me know what you think. I even made the hood canopy for it, im quite proud 8) :lol: it just needs to be painted black now.
