Hey Brock,
I read your reply with a great deal of interest...it sounds like
you have already been down the path that I am following, that is
emphasis on the "lower" life forms (plants) and substrate, and
minimizing the higher life forms (in this case Red-Eyes). I'm
in the process of converting what used to be a 75 gallon reef
aquarium to a vivarium, so I hope you don't mind me asking a few
questions:-
1) Obviously you know your plants, but I would really like to
have a vivarium where the plants grow "wild" and have to be
trimmed back....you mentioned redesigning every few months, and
I would really rather avoid doing that. I am planning on doing
a "false bottom", which I assume would take care of most of the
hygiene problems, so if I am right (if!), would it be
necessary to redesign every couple of months?
2) I also love insectivorous plants, and would love to have a
part of the tank dedicated to them - you mentioned Venus Fly
Traps, so I will ask - I was thinking of using a plastic basin
with spagnum moss (hopefully live if I can get it, although I
have heard that insectivores are just as happy in the dead kind),
to keep fly traps and with any luck some Sarracenias and maybe
Darlingtonia californica. Do you plant your Venus Fly Traps
into the substrate, or do you have a special setup?

Thanks,
-Robert
