Heres how I made the stump. I wanted to create sort of an old tree stump look to fill in the middle space more. I made it out of two pieces of Ghostwood (which Vivarium Concepts was very helpful with picking out) by just using some more GS and silicone/coco to hold them together. Then I mounted the piece on a little granite slate with silicone to attach it.

NICE !....like the process...simple - joining the 2 peices, but effective. Keep runnin' with it and lets see the finished product. Some broms directly on that would look insane.

Ok I had to put some color in this baby so I ordered some more broms. The Galaxy is the pinkish one in the back and looks much better than anticipated! I plan on putting some more pups on the tree in the middle when they get a little bigger. Now I am just waiting to see if I can culture frut flies before I get some froggies. I'm set on 4 D. Leucomelas. I want the orange ones, and am wondering if they just look orange in the pictures because I've seen yellow ones as well? Criticism is appreciated! (Red brom look ok behind the tree slightly?)

Looking good. A little tip, the higher up in the viv you get that nice pink brom...the greater the chances are you won't end up with a nice green brom. :wink:

Here's a really good build thread. Great stuff aside. Very nice hardscaping with ledges and 'sides'.
