Default Red Eye Tree frog terrarium build

Hi All,

My Red Eye Tree Frog build. Pretty much a Zoomed 30 x 30 x 45 in an Oak cabinet. Good few pics to follow. Few months away from getting the inhabitants but gives me plenty of time to add plants and get humidity and temps correct and generally get the setup matured

Hopefully my pics work ok as I set a photobucket account up for this. First time I have done this so any advice or comments welcomed. I have a 50W komodo ceramic. Habistat dimming day/night thermostat, mistking system, Arcadia Jungle LED plus UV tube, combi meter for temp/humidity.

Thanks for looking,

Marc.

Thanks

The fun bit can now begin!

Water is being delivered tomorrow for the mistking and then I need to read the instructions for the thermostat to get everything running ok. Then I get to order my plants

Hopefully this makes the pics easier to view if I have done it correctly

I have had a bit of a move around inside since this. The LED was so bright I couldn't sit near the tank. I swapped it with the ceramic and angled it away and it gives an amazing light. Sorry some well out of focus but was using my phone!

Thank you. It is a Habistat day/night dimming thermostat. Just routered a aperture big enough to slot it in, wish I did one for my humidity panel as well but didn't, easily observed though.

Ordered plants from Dartfrog yesterday so hopefully they will arrive soon and I can get planting

A few with it planted. Can decide if I have gone too busy towards the base. Any comments welcomed. All plants from Dartfrog, very good quality IMO.

Also have added tropical woodlice and springtails who seem to be making themselves at home. Temps and Humidity are a challenge but I am slowly getting there!
