    Carlos, a few weeks ago I posted asking if anyone wanted to order from lightyourreptiles.com with me. You missed the boat!

    I would be interested in ordering a few more jungle dawns though. Perhaps in a month or two.

    Me too! Since adding the jungle dawns all moss growth has gone nuts in my imitator tank.

    You're welcome to come by to measure. Then you can see that my dogs do the exact same thing as yours when a guest comes!

    Well I've done a little work.
    I siliconed and added coco fiber/coco bark/spagnum moss to the background and around the pond.
    Siliconed some rocks together for the "pond" edge.
    Added some small pebbles to cover the false bottom.
    I made a new small screen for the top. Going to order the glass in the next day or two.
    Here's a few pictures.

    Well this is where I'm up too now. Just waiting on leaf litter and moss spread to get here.
    Glass top should be ready tomorrow
    The fogger is all plumbed in.
    And looking to get a few plants and vines. Don't want to over plant this one as I'm thinking of putting either bicolors or terribs in there.

    Added a few things some leaf litter, a few vines, some moss.
    I'm picking up my glass top tomorrow then I'll be added a few more plant and a bunch of moss spread.
    Then add more leaf litter as I see fit. It's looking ok so far.

    Here's a few updated pictures.
    I'm still looking for a few more plants. Maybe a few orchids and a bunch of broms to finish this off.
    Hope to make up to Bernies place soon to pick up 5 yellow terribs.
