    An update on what is going on.
    For at least this year, the
    PA Woods Vivarium will stay in the 75 Gallon. I have been getting the animals looked at individually which has taken some time. I have not been looking for a female to replace Toto yet, but once the tank is up again, I will. It will be between 4-6 inhabitants this year. 3 of each species. Dot the young Leopard Frog and a female American Toad will be making their appearance on this thread when the tank is up. I know many want to see him.

    The plants this year are going to be Perriwinkle, Pakasandra, Dragon's Tail Ferns, Autum Fern, a grass idk name of yet, duckweed, and wild moss. I am restarting completely due to the animals having parasites before and I don't want a relapse.

    I will be getting more Woodlice and Earthworms from the place I work and introducing them to this new habitat. 3 of the 5 evasive fish survived so they will be returning to the new enclosure. I'm hopeful with a new strategy I can eliminate slugs, centipedes, and millipedes this year.

    I'll release more info soon.

    I have started making the build. The plants will be:
    1 Autumn Fern
    1 Japanese Dwarf Fern
    Perriwinkle
    Pakasandra
    1 Lirope (a small variegated grass)
    Wild Moss

    I have decided not to include the Pond Fish, they will go in another setup. For the big news. I am thinking of possibly not including Dot in the enclosure as well as another possible Toad. I am considering having another enclosure (my 30 gallon) as an extended part. This means that i would have paired species in the 75 Gallon and Dot along with another Toad in the 30 Gallon with the same setup with some of the plants. My reasoning is Spot. He is an adult male Leopard Frog and Dot is afraid of him. I would be concerned of bullying so instead of that, I could have another tank on a smaller scale. If I am to lose a plant or animal through the winter assuming all the Amphibs are treated by then, I can replace it in the 75 Gallon. King II and Spot will be the first to enter the 2.0 PA Woods Vivarium. I will be adding Earthworms and Woodlice to the soil. I will include updates of the 30 Gallon as well on this thread. I am going to make a video of the making of this enclosure. Full speed ahead!

    I got a new phone so now the videos will be better! Updates to come. Working on the build. Have half plants and half the hides in. Need the rest, Woodlice, Earthworms and to finish the video. I would love to post pictures again also.

    Default 75 Gallon Vivarium build

    Video coming in the next post! Spot and King II love the tank, they seem to stay together now where they didn't last year. It's cool because Spot will go in the water and King will watch him from a large rock near the water. I have found a female Toad and have yet to name her. She will be joining the guys after a vet visit. I will be getting a Female Leopard Frog for this tank. I really want the pairs of these animals, it would be really cool to have sexed pairs, it's just so hard to get each sex and healthy for that matter. Dot the other male Leopard Frog will be on the waiting list to get in. He has a vet visit and then I have to decide. He doesn't seem to get along with the male I have in there now. Both males are territorial so I may have to put Dot in the 30 Gallon for a few years possibly. I will give updates with that as well in a few updates. I'm considering adding a male Eastern Spade Foot Toad captive bread. They are not very active and the environment would be ideal for them. I'm considering so it's not a done deal, but I'm liking them. I have studied them for a few years so I'm very comfortable with them. I was. Considering them from the beginning actually! I will be adding more Woodlice and Earthworms soon. Updates coming very soon. If you have a name for the female Toad or a comment on the possibility of adding a Spade foot please share! This tank will be home to 2-5 Amphibs max!

    Some excellent pics of the Vivarium! I'm making a "how it's made" video on this and will be looking to make a video including the mister and lighting. It will be on the artificial weather in the tank.

    Busy busy busy. Not really involved in the hobby at the present time. And I'll have even less time due to starting a new job in a couple weeks.
