Hey there Krobar, thanks for the compliment. There is actually a water feature that my camera did not quite catch. On the vivarium floor, there is a shallow winding stream that will allow me to drain the excess water. I am adding some tiny, floating lily-pad-like plants called "salvinia," as well as some java moss. Unortunately the camera did not catch it, and it is a shame too as I have a nice moss-covered log "bridge" that crosses it and looks fabulous. And yes, I went out into the forest and did some heavy moss collection. With my lighting and soil mix, it should thrive. It is actually funny, because I didn't have cash for enough corkbark to cover the back, so of course I had to improvise, and I am quite happy with the result. Now as for the size of the tank, that too was a concern of mine. I was seriously considering settng up two vivariums, so I talked to Mark, and he said it should be fine provided that I place some horizontal film canisters in some of the elevated positions as this will help the males establish territory, and provide a place for egg laying other than the brom. Thanks again krobar.
