Very nice.

Custom made 36" tanks ?

Love the black contact paper.

Thanks!

I'm in the uk so had these made in cm. 80cm long so that's maybe 32 inches, more or less.

It's actually acrylic paint! Prefer it as I can just peal it off cleanly if I decide I fancy a change.

There's 2 Azureus in the bottom viv and 2 leucomelas in the middle, top viv currently empty.

Black contact paper not only peels nicely, but you can even re-apply it !

It's "paper" that comes in rolls, sold at Kitchen stores - for lining the inside of kitchen drawers. In case you guys don't have it, or the equivalent over there.

It goes by the name Fablon here in the UK and is readily available

It's also great for the sides of vivs too and gives a professional finish to any project.

Nice to see you over here Paul (Morgan!)

Marcus & Graham

Thanks all! Very happy with how these have turned out. Just need to find some frogs to fill the top two vivs. Will have to be Tincs as I need to keep the noise to a minimum. Probably going for some Oyapocks and.....Well I'll see what else takes my fancy.

Ello mate good to see you here kiddo,vivs as always looking supercool,congrats!!! Paul just a thought my auratus male is very quiet,might be another potential option,for you to consider,we have just got the panamas in their viv out of their QT tub,wonderful to see them where they should be...i have a feeling they will be quite visable...time will tell.
best always mate

Lots of frogs have very quite calls that would love either of those vivs, reticulata and uakarii for example have barely audible buzzing calls.

Never considered the smaller dart species, assumed they would need more vertical space.

Difficult for me to qualify mate my ears are shot as you know ...but i'd be amazed if you could here them outside the room,i can hear the luecs down here ...but no way auratus,unfortunately our citrons are to young for me to give you a comaprison...someone here will know though for sure if a tinc call is louder than an auratus,i'll find out if none else gets there first.
