Thread: Brown Leaf Mantella (M.betsileo) Terrarium

    Default Brown Leaf Mantella (M.betsileo) Terrarium

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first thread here, so thought I would do one on a Terrarium I recently refurbished

    I was given this Terrarium a couple of years ago and it ended up not getting used so I put it into storage, until a couple of months ago I really needed a temporary Terrarium for my M.betsileo before I get my E.N.T's lol Brought the tank out and saw how poor the workmanship was on it and had to rebuild it as it was full of gaps and the like which I wasn't comfortable with.

    Here are a few photographs of what it looked like:



    Anyway, seeing as it is merely a temporary measure before I build the final Terrarium, a little refurbishment had to be done which doesn't look a lot in these Photographs but honestly it wasn't a pretty sight to see lol :P




    So after I did a little altering and moving around of Bogwood etc (Notice I added one bit) I ended up planting it up and adding all the enrichment they would need


    This photograph was taken a month or two ago but it's already grown a lot, especially that creeping Ivy! The Fittonia also has grown rapidly aswell as you can see from this photo, the group love hiding amongst it


    Anyway, sorry for the boring thread! It's not how I would like it too be as their next enclosure is going to represent their wild habitat as best as I can make it, so stay tuned as I will do a thread on each of my upcoming builds for all my Amphibia!

    Thank you all for reading
