Thanks marshie

yeah pretty much the same way. I decided not to put a glass seperater in though. Instead I have just piles some river stones ontop of finer gravel. I hope they will be sufficient.

I only run the water fall for a little each day. Only because it increases humidity a lot. The upper plants dont seem to be doing well, I think it might be too humid for them. Any suggestions on other plants?

yeh you could try using some ferns and bromeliads which work really well.
if u are close to south east melbourne u could try garden wotld which has a huge variety of bromeliads and ferns. and u could try fern world which is pretty close to there (both near springvale)
i just have 2 q's
1. What is the piece of bark or wood you have in there or is it artificial??
2. What light canopy brand do u use??? (also where did u get it from thx)

thanks mate, I think Im going to try some different fern species. I did notice that while the foliage on the fern is dying, there are lots of new shoots comming up from the soil.

The piece of wood I used was a lucky find. I have actually just moved from Melbourne to Albury. I decided to find a piece of suitable driftwood for my enclosure because the pet stores wanted an arm and a leg for even the little pieces. So I had a look at Lake Hume up here and there was heaps of drift wood on the shore which is where I found it.

Secondly, the light fitting is one of the exo terra glow lamp fittings. When you turn it off, it actually glows to simulate a night light for frogs. Is really cool feature. I got it second hand from ebay or gumtree and it was in mint condition. The globe I use is a UVB exo terra 2.0. I have the light on a timer, and it only comes on for 2 hours a day at the moment. I may increase this once I get some frogs.

Hi All, this is my first post. So seeing as i've just finished my new viv i figured this would be the best place to start.

Everything in this viv is natural. Cork bark backgrounds, bush granite rocks, living substrate and all living plants.

The pond is circulated by a canister filter and houses zebra danios.

Hope you like.

This is the artifical tank :P I aim on making it very unartifical when I have the money but for now it is home to my female Tasmanian froglet/ or maybe shes a comon Eastern Froglet. She has a black and white belly just like the patterning on that of a tusked frogs belly.

I plan on getting a filter and I will in the next decade or so when I have money xD

Marsh frog enclosure

Postby Mamuka » Sat Mar 26, 2011 10:27 am

Hello all,

I have just built a very simple enclose for my Marsh metamorph. Any feedback welcome, I got loads of great advice from this website and decided to keep it simple i.e. some plants, a shallow dish, rocks and some beach wood to hide under. I enclose is a bit small but I will buy a new one once the metamorph is larger and the other ones are turning into frogs. Any feedback I welcome.

that looks really great mate, like the layout of it with the water bowl in the middle and that wood with the plants.

Keep out the good work.

I have posted these elsewhere, but I'll add them here as it seems like the right place. Was great to get ideas from this forum so I'll show what I have done to return the favour.. Hope you like!

This is my green tree froglets enclosure until they grow up and move into a bigger one. Their names are Fergus and Norbert :) They were feeding while I took this so that is why you cant see them. I will put up some photos of them on the weekend sometime.
Feel free to comment,
Phil
