Hi, The viv is 36 inches high, 32 inches long, and 20 inches wide. The viv has two water features, a waterfall over bog-wood and a back panel circulation system made with cocos panels. The temperature is sustained by under floor heating, and a heat-strip on the side. Humidity is high, but with good ventilation to keep the front glass front getting steamed up so I can see inside the 'jungle' at all times. I will be adding a misting system later when I decide on a model. Frogs are currently 2 D.Leucomelas and 1 D.Azureus. I love Orchids, so have added some to the viv and intend to add some more over time. The frogs are very active all day in the achieved environment.
It is always good to see what other people are doing throughout the world, which inspires me to make the best of my vivarium. Keep up the good work.

Building house for a frog named Pirupiru Yamamoto

My name is Ben Eiben and I sent in some vivarium photos a while ago, and I thought that you would enjoy seeing some pictures of my smaller tropical vivarium. It is a 29 gallon tank that is set up with a false bottom, with a mix of coconut mulch, orchid bark, and leaf debris. I tried to make it as close to a neo-tropical biotope as possible, and added the tree roots as a light refuge. The lighting is 2 X 55 watt 5600K powercompact lights. There are 7 species of orchids, club mosses, true mosses, and earth star bromeliads. The tank has been established for 1 year now, and it was the 1st place winner at the 2000 International Amphibian Day terrarium contest. It was set up for small neotropical amphibians but it is currently uninhabited because i cant have animals in my college dormatory. I hope you enjoy the photos. Also look for new photos this summer on my new project! A 75 gallon coldwater salamander encloure with a chiller loop, and insitu food supplies as well as insitu larva rearing. Oh so here are the pictures!
PS.

Construction of the vivaruim:

Then I put Air Conditioning filter over that.
Then I put around 1" of a special soil on top of the filter.
I buried pots of pothos and assorted bromeliads on the soil.
Then I put in live moss. In the moss I placed pups of bromeliand and cuttings of other plants.
This vivarium has been working for about a month now.
Everything is growing great.
