Here is photo of my new (and first) vivarium.
Size is 49.21" x 19.69" x 19.69" (125cm x 50 cm x 50cm).

Don't know what to tell about it, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask Smile

Very nice ! Any ideas on frogs yet ? A huge, low tank like that screams phyllobates terribilis to me at least.

Do you have access to an automatic misting system in Finland ?

I think so. At first (before there is any animals) I think I'll try how this works with sprayer but if there is problems to keep moisture, I'll definitely buy misting system! Smile

Sorry if I don't spell correct. It's almost 5 am here Big Grin

And about frogs. Is this too low tank for d. auratus or r. amazonicus? :S

Very nice. Yeah, I agree w Phil, If I had a viv that large, Id be all over a herd of Mint Terribilis. By the way, ferns can be tricky. You might mount them on fern bark so they can dry out.

WIth a viv that size, your choice of ground dwelling frogs is pretty wide!!

I think you can get mistking in Poland,fairly near i suppose, here you are http://vivariumland.com/index.php?cPath=135.

if you go for auratus then maybe a bit more cover for them to hide under near the front,they'll use it and you'll see more of them.
apart from that great first attempt well done you!!!!!!! buddy I'm in England,if supplies are difficult please shout,i might be able to help

It seems that moisture is quite stable, 80-85% and only used sprayer two times a day. Smile

That's gorgeous, particularly that thicket of ferns...

That's a very nice looking viv!!! Just be careful you don't keep those ferns too moist or they'll rot quickly.

Very dramatic lighting change. Was it simply the planting changes, or did you alter the bulb placement as well?

Thanks Phil. I finally found breeder in Finland who has Auratus babies, so Auratus group is what I'll get Smile Few more weeks until I can get them home.
