    I get excited when you guys post on the thread and your excited, I love that. I love questions because I don't get very many lol. I have the Myrtle and will get some ferns before the update. I have already figured out how things will look and how I will be able to do it. I honestly think if I can pull from my head and make it look exact in the tank, it will look like a nano woods lol. I'm excited for an attempt at a stream.

    The insects native to this tank have been very active now that the temps are in the 60-70's range. I saw tons of Wrigglers and Earthworms. The Woodlice are also active. I have seen a lot of positives from everything in the tank with cooler temps.

    December 15th will be the first day in changing this enclosure. As December marks 6 months, it is also a welcomed challenge now that there is no going and buying new or going in the woods to find something. This will be the first winter the 75 Gallon will face. 17 days until the remodel.

    Just 2 days until the update. My hallway is going to be a mess for a week haha. I am looking forward to this, I am really hoping everything will go as expected. I found out I have more Myrtle to add. So I might not need to get more in the spring. Some plants will be missing and the mosquito fish will be as well, but the plants animals and insects will be in. Looking to breakdown the tank on YouTube possibly.

    Default 75 Gallon Vivarium build

    The update is finished. I am surprised as to what I found. There was some weird type of big in the wooden hide. They are gone now. From what I saw one slug is left, he will be eliminated. I put a wild wood cricket in my Vivarium a while back and it seems that it mated with a cb cricket to create offspring. There were 4, 2 survived. Tons of Woodlice, probably in around 200, I found 6-7 worms and 5 SuperWorm offspring. All the evasive fish are alive and the plants are all in the tank now. More misters are in and the waterfall works and the leopard frog loves it. I am excited for spring. More animals and plants.

    Today is Spots birthday! He has made it a whole year with me. I am so very happy that I chose Northern Leopard Frogs to be in this "experiment", although he is the only frog (until spring) I can say that observing him has been a privilege. I love his call that he makes, even though it has been a challenge keeping a semi aquatic frog with terrestrial toads, it is worth it. I cannot get a picture because he is hiding but, when he comes out I will. I couldn't think of a better birthday present than giving him a flowing stream.

    It doesn't look like what it will when fully planted. It stinks the plants all died but the Myrtle just before the winter. I never should have done that drought. However, I will be buying those plants and taking care of them. I am excited for this spring, very big changes! The plants, the animals, and more. I am adjusting the waterfall also and when that is finished, it will look great

    I have some great news. I will be getting a 150 Gallon late this summer and these guys will be going in it. The 75 Gallon PA Woods Vivarium is going to become the 150 Gallon PA Woods Vivarium. I have decided I will not be getting Mosquito fish to put in it and the stream will not be in the 150 Gallon I am going back to the original look. I will upgrade the Whites Tree Frogs enclosure to the 75 Gallon and they will get the stream flowing as well as a mister. Lots of big updates to come, I look forward to a bigger Woods Enclosure and a bigger Tropical enclosure.

    Some sad news and some updates. So I will be getting a 125 gallon tank for the animals, plants, and insects of the 75 Gallon Vivarium. Sadly Toto passed and it was a sad story. The bright side is the next female American Toad and Northern Leopard Frog will have things and tests these guys did not. As I am sad and not really interested now, I can say that yes I will be restocking and the 125 Gallon PA Woods Vivarium will happen. American Toads and Northern Leopard Frogs will be the Amphibs of choice. I'm going back to the original look with no waterfall. I feel it was interesting but, the leopard frog actually seemed to want more land. I will have a small piece of liner that will hopefully act as a puddle which will feel more natural and could mean mating. The show goes on.

    Default 75 Gallon Vivarium build

    Now that I have some time and I'm not as sad I can share the updated here.
    I am considering 3-4 of the species. I have a guy talking to me now about a juvenile Captive from tadpole leopard frog. I still plan on getting another Leopard Frog as well. I am considering having 2 females to 1 male. I will be looking for a female this spring for King II (Toad) as well as searching for the toad I caught last year Riva. I enjoyed her and because I had her before I will not think twice about keeping her. So I may have 6. I will balance it out with each species so it will not be unbalanced in terms of who has more. The new leopard frog is going to be named "Dot" I believe it's a female. As for the plants,
    I will use Perriwinkle the same in the tank, Pakasandra, Dragon's Tail Ferns, wild Daisies, an Iris (will be tall enough tank), a small grass I believe will work, and duckweed. The insects will remain Woodlice, Earthworms, and Crickets. I'm using medium Crickets for these guys because of Toto. They will each be corinteened and examined by a doctor. I plan on hibernating them in a 30 gallon next winter for a few months. I will get into that later. The tank will be
    5'x1.5'x2.5' with the 4' T5 and 60W ceramic heat emitter. I will use an UTH as well. It will have 2 fans and 6 misters from the Exo Terra Monsoon RS400. I'm going back to the woods look so no waterfall. I want it to look like a semi dense woods. Around 5 hides and 2 will be bigger than an XL hide. I will try to have 2-3 biomes. A dry one with rocks, a bin as the water which is 2.5 gallons, and the lush plants together. I am very excited to do this. I will eventually get a camera and use it for documentaries on the animals here and soon to be the WTF 75 Gallon. I hope to get the Amphibs to mate so I can help repopulate more Leopard Frogs for an area and Toads in my woods. The frogs are not local to my town so I would most likely need a contact to send them where they would be needed. Lots to think about with this. 4-5 months from the build.

    New Leopard Frog! I believe it's a female, but I will find out soon. Her name is Dot and she was at a Petco in Nashville. Her previous owner raised her so I know where this frog has been. A young frog; It's so far the most tame leopard frog I have seen or handled. I'm going to try to tame her and hopeful hand feed as well. I'm hoping this is a female for Spots sake haha. Dot is in for a treat, Crickets, Waxworms, Mealworms, Waxmoths await her. Photos and video coming soon.
