Default 75 Gallon Vivarium withToads and Skinks

Hello, I am new to the forum but I wanted to share a project that I have already created and shared with other forums. I have a local type of enclosure containing American Toads and Southeastern Five Lined Skinks. These are both a sexed pair one male and female. I have a 4ft Odyssey Light Fixture that can simulate morning afternoon evening and night. I have a Mistking and a large UTH for this enclosure. I have local plants such as an Autumn Brilliance Fern and a Japanese Pictum Fern, Pachysandra, Daylilly and an Iris. I will be getting some Spleenwort Ferns and English Ivy in the spring. I have local insects inside the vivarium as well. Woodlice and Earthworms are local and I will introduce the Banded Crickets as well as local Crickets found in the pet shops back here in the states. I have a lot of care guides for both animals in videos I post on my YouTube channel and I just posted a video not to long ago. You can check out my video of the Toads and Skinks here.

Thank you for the support on here! So the next video will feature the male Skink Pharaoh and female American Toad Ace the Apex predators being they will be the largest one of their species which will come out near early February. I will have another video idk when it will be out but following this one on the male toad Pious the female Skink and Ruby the offspring. It will show how the smaller inhabitants coexist inside the vivarium and highlight Rubies experience being introduced to the vivarium. I am dedicating a week in May for Amphibian Week focused on the American Toads and possibly a new inhabitant pair to the enclosure as well. It will be mimicking shark week but focused on the amphibian in the tank. July I will dedicate a week to the Skinks. More updates coming soon! Checkout the YouTube channel to see the inhabitants and don't forget to like and subscribe!

Excellent, well done on providing a nice slice of habitat. Do you have a build log of this project and what are the dimensions of the enclosure?

I have a thread on the Frog Forum and I think the beginning of the thread explains what I have. If it isn't explained well enough I can go into more detail.

Here are some of the videos in order of the enclosure.
