    Yup aquarium mosses usually work well in a dart frog vivarium, especially on the substrate, because you should be misting about twice daily and keeping the humidity at 80-100%. Other people have done it and it looks really good.

    You should do a half land half water. What is it pauladarium? Something like that. That would be pretty cool, you don't really need an eco terra though.

    May use riccia or java. Not sure which one.

    Yeah, I know. Though most like some air flow, so I may see about doing something to have some air flow in the tank. The terrarium will almost be completely sealed, as dart frogs are better off with that since you need to feed usually 3-7 times a week, depending on how much natural food you have. So it would get fresh air from opening for feeding. Not sure if I should use an aquarium or an Exo Terra. I like the benefit of having the front doors.

    I think that is the plant on land that I see...I'm sticking to baby tears that have been submersed, but if I do a terrarium for dart frogs that may be a plant I choose to grow on the floor.

    Are you sure? They look exactly the same and resemble the same leaf structure. I don't have any in my tank anyways. I was just curious.

    Well I have dirt in the tank. So if I have to rip it out, that means it will be a complete mess. So I will have to get a fertile substrate for good growth. Which means stratum. Not sure if I will get ADA or Azoo. Both are good products and do mostly the same thing. Just Azoo doesn't leach ammonia and the pellet shape lasts longer. They are both made in the same factory supposedly as well. Probably going with Azoo

    oh LAND baby tears? lke the ones they sell in pots at the local market? those are entirely different species...
    your tank, if it's not deep... I wouldn't worry about it too much for now... especially if it's closer to the top than the bottom.
    wht happened with the fertile substrate...?

    Yeah HC, well I'm not sure if the baby tears I have seen on dry land is baby tears or HC as in dwarf.

    My tank is scratched/cracked, not deep, but it worries me. No one knows what happened, yet someone hit it and won't fess. Now I'm out money to buy new items since I won't have a fertile substrate.

    I was wondering why I couldn't go on...

    So you know that baby tears is a terrestrial plant that likes shade? But if I goes in the aquarium, it needs more CO2 than light. Kind of interesting. Before my redo of the tank I want to make sure I have pressurized CO2.

    Ripariums are awesome! There are some really awesome ones on TPT. I want to do a vivarium for dart frogs. May do that sometime next year, who knows... I know a breeder that I can get cheap frogs.

    If I do get a tank upgrade it would be the Mr. Aqua 17.4 gallon, same dimensions as my 15 gallon, just a few inches taller and rimless.

    Your welcome? Lol
