I recently aquired two fire-bellied toads from my sister-in-law's sister with almost all the equipment. But I had to put it all together and make it look good. I decided on siliconing some pieces of plaxiglass I had sitting around to the inside of the 10g tank to make a little less than half the tank a land area. As you can see by the pictures I then filled it with potting soil while making a gravel wall against the glass so you can't see the the dirt well. I planted it with Scotch moss and a polkadot plant from Home Depot. Then I layed down a plastic liner for the stream out of a gallon size freezer Ziplock and covered it all with gravel. (Note: Make sure you lay the water line BEFORE you finish perfecting your landscape...It would have been easier that way). I used a 60gph pump from Harbor Freight, regular airline tubing with a 90* fitting on the end, and held the end in the right place with small rocks. I am very happy with the way it turned out, but the only thing is that, for some reason, the land area keeps getting totally flooded. I siphoned it all out (picture 5) and adjusted the plastic stream lining but it flooded again the next time I turned on the stream. I think it's just flowing off the end of the steam and getting sucked under the plastic there. Not sure what I'm gonna do about that yet, but I'll figure it out.
The frogs love it though!
Anyway, just sharing my project. Let me know what you guys think!
Always with love,
