Here is my 18x18x24 vivarium. I just set it up today. Getting some leucs for it August 6th. Sorry about the quality.

Very good start Cer. Make sure you have a covered top - preferably glass.

Also, make sure you have an inch or so of standing water in the bottom of the tank. That way, you can look into the side of the tank and see the water in amongst the clay leca and know that there is good humidity that way.

Sorry about that. The pictures don't show it, but I got some glass cut and placed it over the original screen lid. The drainage layer isn't leca it is actually a product Josh's frogs sells called Hydroton. I'll definitely put some more water in the bottom.

No worries.

Hydroton is Leca - they are they same, I believe.

Your mystery plant is Fittonia verschaffeltii, a very good terrarium / vivarium choice.

Nice looking tank Cer. Leucs are great frogs, you will enjoy them!
I would recommend different gauges, go with digital.
FYI Hydroton is a brand name of LECA (Light Expanded Clay Aggregate).

Oh, I didn't know that about leca. What brand digital gauges do you use for your tank? By the way thanks for the plant name Philsuma.

Cer, there are a lot of good quality digital gauges that can be found at some of the Big Box stores, usually cheaper than the ones at pet shops.
Be sure to get your gauges and check your temps/humidity before you get your frogs. Check it through the day with the lights on to get your temp range.
Do you have any plans to add any plants that might grow up and cover the back wall?

I'm thinking of adding some wood to the back and then getting a viney plant to grow on it in addition to maybe another bromeliad. Any suggestions for a viney plant?
