construct a vivarium out of fish tank?
#1

Hey guys I was in my shed and found a couple of fish tanks that I have a 5, 10 , and 15 gal tank. Can I use any of these as a dart frog set up so that I put them to good use? Please help and any ideas or tips would be great.What kind of dart frogs could I house in them if I do convert any of these tanks.

Yes you can use them. If they were mine, the 10 and 15 would be converted to a vertical tanks.

I agree with Brad, the 15 vertical would be good for a few thumbs, the 5 and 10 could be used for "grow out" or quarantine vivs.

You turn the tank on end and then purchase or fabricate your own door. A lot of folks that keep thumbs go vertical w/fish tanks. I bought some doors (way too lazy to make my own) from a vendor that had an ad and some feedback on this site. Here's a thread of somebody doing a vert conversion - viewtopic.php?f=23&t=8197&p=56800&hilit=vertical#p56800

The doors I bought were super easy to install, and very well made - http://dartden.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=7851&hilit=supe
