::Hi, I am a complete newbie at keeping treefrogs etc. etc
:
:We all know what a false bottom is basically, so just say that, don't need to go in depth. Tank sounds good, but it doesn't take 6 months for plants to look natural. Once you put them in, it looks natural. They will start groeing in a month or so, then you may have to trim them every year or so.

Derek, thx for the response - I haven't read all the messages
here (yet), so I didn't know that false bottoms were used - I
thought I was being clever and original! As for the plants, I'm
just extrapolating from my reef tank experience, where it does
take about a year for things look "natural", but of course you
are right, plants grow much faster.

So thanks for the advice ... and hope I don't annoy anyone with
too many question in the future!
Thx,
-Robert
