this is a tank i just built to house 3 Dendrobates tinctorius 'dwarf french guiana', i figured i would share it with you guys.
the plants include tropical sheet moss from black jungle, java moss, selaginella kraussiana 'aurea', another upright growing selaginella that i dont know the name of, maidenhair fern, dwarf african violet, creeping fig, 2 dwarf vriesia species, and one neoregelia, and a marginal grass-like plant that i forget the name of. the large peice of driftwood in the middle is ghost wood and acts as a waterfall, with java moss growing on it.

RE: dart frog tank

VERY nice! I like the strong slope you gave it, gives it more presence and interest. Your marginal grass is probably sagittarius sp. or acorus sp. grass. And I like how it already has that established look, with the moss everywhere. Those purple AVs are real gems, too! I bet your frogs will LOVE it! Post pics of them when you can! BTW, what size is that? Looks like a 20 gal. to me.

Very nice, I think the only thing I would do would be add some more epiphytic plants to the cork bark wall.

RE: dart frog tank

Yeah, more epiphytes, and you don't need to start a new thread to post more pics. You'll notice when you type a response that there are two lines below the main message box. You just put the URL to the location of your photos in the first line, and then give it a name in the second line, just like you did when you first posted you pic above. It ends up looking like this:

RE: dart frog tank

Wow! looks good. I can't believe that Blackjungle sent you live moss. Mine was brown, very very brown. What is your lighting system? It looks like LEDS to me.
