Hi David and welcome to Dart Den !

Your build does indeed sound interesting...I'll be very much looking forward to seeing such a large planted enclosure.

Please feel free to hang out here amongst the interesting denizens of 'the Den", enjoy yourself and ask any questions that you may have.

Fixed your post for you - embedded your viddy. Please don't yell at me Tongue

Looks fantastic !!....love the plumbing. Be careful of too much ultrasonic misting. Remember, these animals don't live in a cloud forest.
