this is my first vivarium.i built it from old windows i found in the garbage.features 3 species of moss,several tropical plants and ferns,2 species of palm tree and a single bromeliad.its built in the dartfrog style(false bottom)but does not house frogs.im currently keeping a high blue sorong green tree python.i have a waterfall and fogger and the air is circulated with computer fans.while i was building this i came to your site every day for ideas and insperation and i was hoping that if it turned out well it may be shown on your site.i hope you think it deserves to be shown here and i now am hooked on vivariums and am currently on my second(larger one)thanks
