70 Gallon Leucomelas VivariumFalse bottom and water features
This 70-gallon vivarium is constructed with a false bottom floor that rests against the rear wall and leaves about a 2-inch gap on each side and an inch in the front. The false bottom is raised 2 inches using PVC pipe and has hinged (with plastic ties) walls and is covered with screen mesh to keep debris and herps from getting under the eggcrate. Under the eggcrate, I positioned a single aquarium heater and a pump on either side of it for separate water features. On both sides, I used beach stones to fill the gap between the eggcrate and glass to hide the pumps. On the left side of the land portion of the tank, I ran a tube from the pump into a hollow log and put java moss on the log. I also put a couple of air stones under the beach stones to circulate the water and provide increased humidity. On the right side, I ran a tube from the pump onto the white rock in front of the beach stone for a gspring-likeh look. In the front I used aquarium gravel to fill the gap between eggcrate and glass, because beach stones wouldnft fit. I think I like the contrasted look anyway. I plan to put an ultrasonic fogger in the front left corner to further maintain humidity and to help induce breeding when the time comes.
Ifm experimenting regarding a misting and ventilation pattern that will give me a consistent 80% to 100% humidity range.
