I finally had a chance to add a few more plants to the newest build. I hope to pick up some mini broms and orchids to finish this one off.

Not a froggie pic but I have been working on a new viv. I wanted to try out not using any wood and mounting everything to the tree fern. I am going to add a few more small plants and a couple of mini broms. I am planning to leave the floor open with a nice layer of leaf litter and a few seed pods. So far I think its working out pretty well.

Nice. Love the 'sided' or 'shadow box' hardscaping design. Always a fan of the enclosed tanks.

Thanks Phil, appreciate it. This is my first attempt using no wood and I like the way it has worked out. I don't think that if I hadn't done both side walls in tree fern it would have worked out so well. A bit of time to grow in, leaf litter and seed pods should make it look pretty decent in the end.

Been working on a couple of new tanks and I've got a few new pictures to share.
This is my new banded leuc viv, replaced an Exo 18x18x24 with a V-Scape 15.5x23x24

Finished this one up today for a group of red galacts. V-Scape 34x17x22

And last, caught my Capira transporting a tad as well today.

I'm pretty sure it is Justin but the tag actually says Rex Waif.

Yesterday was a good day, I acquired an unrelated F1 pair of Boca del Drago Colon's, a frog that has been on my wish list for a while! I am very excited to have received these guys and really look forward to working with them.

These went into one of the 34" tanks in the hall. I think it fits them well.

Here is most of the collection with all of the new tanks. I think I have used every inch of wall space my wife will allow. I keep pressing her that an island would be awesome but she doesn't agree. There are two more racks not pictured but the tanks are mostly empty and not built at this point.

I would like to cover the gap between the tops of the tanks and the lights so there is no glare but I haven't come up with a really good way to do it yet.

Wow! It looks great!

As far as the light covers go, could you know sew up some heavy black cloth and use magnets to attach them to the shelves?

Glenn that is actually a good idea, I just might give that a try. My original thought was to use wood, but it didn't really work out how I wanted it to. But a nice thick black cloth would hide the lights, and be easily accessible for maintenance and cleaning wise they could just go right in the wash.


Thank you Jim! I think once I get the lights covered it will be where I want it. Until I have to move that is, then I am likely going to go with the square tube shelving system.

Contact a local sign company Dustin.

They can cut strips of black plastic (forget exact name) that can be fixed to the racks. Can't find the thread where someone used this technique, but it looked nice and clean. If I remember correctly, it was affordable as well because they will likely use several scrap pieces.

I thought about something like coroplast but that has the lines through it and wouldn't look very nice. What your talking about, does it have a smooth finish or maybe even semi rough? Is it flat or glossy?
