    I had an extra 18"x18"x24" ExoTerra hanging around so I decided to build another tank, this time with vanzolinii's in mind. I didn't document the entire build but I did happen to take progress pic's as I planted it and as it matured. I have a group of 4 in here (two from Jungle Jewels and 2 from Understory) and I will try to get more and better pictures of just the frogs in the near future.

    Plant List:

    Begonia 'Iran Jaya'
    Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'
    Ficus villosa
    N. 'Punc. rubra x Tigrina'
    N. 'Couger'
    N. 'Fireball'
    N. 'Pauciflora'
    Masdevallia herradurae
    Marcgravia rectiflora
    Pelonia repens
    Peperomia emarginella
    Peperomia prostrata
    Pepromia sp. No ID
    Peperomia sp. 'Red Stem'
    Philodendron oxycardium var. micans
    Pilea glauca
    Pilea involucrata
    Tropical moss from UE
    Zootrophion griffin

    I love having all of this directly behind my desk. It doesn't take long to unwind and destress sitting in front of these.

    Looking fantastic. Empty tank syndrome is a tough one to kick

    Thanks. And it definitely is. I always seem to 'find' an extra tank around... maybe it's just coincidence lol

    I believe you're referring to Pilea involucrata

    I finally managed to get a picture of one of the vanzo's but they're still quite shy and don't hesitate to flee when I get close to their viv. Fortunately, and from a distance, I was able to see both males calling and even some courting behavior with the two females. Hopefully soon I'll have some eggs to report!

    I also got the opportunity to clean the glass on all viv's so here's another frog rack photo
