And a pixi isnt going to use any of the height. Treefrogs would be a much
Better choice if you want to walk into it.

shower stall is a great idea! they make shower kits for bigger stalls also I just want the green tropical landscape for my 2 pixie frogs, I'll have a serpation for them And I'd love to have a waterfall that is built into the filtration system. Going to look into the shower stall. Thanks for the idea!

No problem. Thought about it myself a few times. If you wanted a waterfall you could elevate it a foot or so off the floor and its allready got abuilt in drain.

I think I will make it a walk in area, but only about knee high, that way it interacts with the room, and people can feed it from the media room

I would love to see some pics of the progress. It may just fule the fire to get me to act on one. just for ideas if you know someone that does trashouts of abandoned houses. You may be able to pull one out from one of those houses for nothing. Thats where iv been looking to aquire one. I know people that do that so its a possability. Glad I could help.

My email is crypticbynature@live.com if you would pass that on to whoever is atempting it. Maby they can send some project pics and I would be more then willing to offer up any input or further ideas

I'll post them as soon as I get finished I've decided to build a plexiglass hill into the water feature half the size of the tank. that way, Ican build his land feature with a ramp to it, but undernieth the hill would be a bunch of filter media, and there would be holes drilled in the under water part, so the water could flow into the "sump area" the filtration would have the same area as the usable water feature, But it wouldn't take anymore space up. With the built in drain, I can pipe it out to the drain for the septic system. So if I do have to drain all of it, would be very easy.... need to autocad it next. I'll post the autocad image as soon as that parts done

ok, materials are going to cost 405 bucks, so I'll have to wait a few months before doing it its going to be 3' by 4 or 4x4 if I decide to half it for both with a divider. cut sheets x 6 if for one frog, x 7 if seperating it out. need 12 feet of plexiglass 1" thick rod. this is for support of the plexiglass hill with sump built in underneath. overall, not to expensive, something like this would cost a lot more to have built Going to build in waterfall also, wont cost to much for that though.
