I have aquatic soil on the land side about an inch and a half deep then there is the large river rock built up and on the water side. (it's about 1/2 inch in size) The aquatic soil looks like little nuggets and is real tiny but it isn't suposed to be harmful to fish or frogs if ingested. I'm going to cover it with regular clean soil and leaf mulch once the tads morph.

The fogger is only on and in the water for a few hours at a time. When it's not in use I take it out. It's a real small little unit and is very easy to remove and clean.

:the gravel on the land side needs to go away. it will mix in with the other stuff and some day it will get swallowed. and in the water I would use river rock, not small gravel.
:put the fogger on a timer so only on at dawn/dusk. I didn't like my fogger. it rusts out easily too. they aren't really worth the money.
:that is nice though. some cork bark half buried in the substrate makes a good cave for them to hide in.
