So I have been out of the dart frog hobby for close to 7 years now and i was wondering if you have any advice on building a vivarium. For the past 2 years i have been focusing on my salt water hobby but the ich has been there. So here is my idea. 40gal breeder (36"x18"x16") now what I want to do is incorperate come of my ideas from keeping SW and run basically a sump. So under the tank in the stand i want to have a 10 gal strickly for flow of the water in the false bottom and another 10gal for a misting system. On the return side back into the "sump" i will use a filter sock to filter out the water and keep it as clean as possiable. I mostly want a small pond. now here is where the questions start: what is the best way to keep the tank at the proper temp? I used to use heat pads under all my tanks but i have seen people using aquarium heats (which i have a few to spare). What is the best background??? I liked sNapples idea with using the epiweb. Where is the best source for plants these days??? For lighting i am going to run a 2x24watt sunlight supply new wave t5 fixture which should be more than enough. and to keep this thread interesting, here is what has kept me busy for the past few years. I want to get back into the dart frog game but fist is getting an establish tank.
