My first Vivarium was built using an old 50 gal aquarium with a separate land area but it proved not to be tall enough for my Red eyes and I had some problems with the drainage and other things so I decided to build one from scratch. It is a 100 x 100 x 40 cm custom built enclosure which also works as a rainchamber with 2 sliding front doors. It is all glass with false bottom.<p> <b>Technical data</b><br> - False bottom ( egg crate covered with fiberglass sheet for drainage)<br> - Humus and large gravel substrate<br> - Custom built cork back wallp - 2 Waterfalls( 1 custom built from PVC and one section of the cork panel as the second waterfall)<br> - 2 PC fans blowing warm air down from light source<br> - Daytime temp - 24C<br> Nightime temp - 19C<br> Water temp - 28C<br> Humidity - 70%<p> <b>Water Section</b><br> - filtration is custom built from tupperware boxes and 1 1000 l/h maxijet pump ( Filter the water and runs it directly to the 2 waterfalls,each with a valve for adjusting the water circulation in each waterfall<br> - Driftwood as land area edge<p> <b>Land Area</b><br> - Liana vines<br> - Ficus plant<br> - Pothos<br> - orchid?<br> - mosses (two tropical species and some java moss)<br> - bromelaid<p> <b>Inhabitants</b><br> - Neon tetras<br> - Pristelas<br> - Carnigellas<br> - Buenos Aires Tetras<br> - Tanichtys<br> - Corydoras Shwarzi<br> - Golden nugget<br> - 2 Red eyed tree Frogs</td></table> <HR> <A HREF="http://www.wildsky.net/index.htm" target="_top">back to Wild Sky Home</A><BR> <A HREF="mailto:webmaster@wildsky.net">mail to wild sky</A></CENTER> <HR></BODY></HTML>
