Well, the thing thats holding the gravel up is like a cliff sort of thing lol i got it from petsmart for $17 but i had to have it because it was perfect and before i bought the wall i just had a little gravel slope, but i figured the wall would look much better.
And the filtation is just a $20 filter that spits out the water like a fountain from the side (kinda cool, sounds like a waterfall), ill get the name of it later, gotta find the box, i wanted to build some type of water fall where the filter spits out the water, but i wasnt sure how to make it so i just let it be, but it filters up to 12 gallons, and theres only about 3 in there so the water is always clear, and i havent had to change it yet as it hasnt got oily from the toads skin yet, and its been about 3 weeks already, in a water bowl, i change the water at least 3 days a week because it gets so oily, and the toads actually do get sick if the water is to toxic! i went on vacation for 3 days and when i came back one of them was hiding and resting his head, and when i changed the water i actually had to pick him up and put him in the bowl because he wouldnt even move, so clean water is a must!!
it wasnt that much to put together, $60 for the screen lid, filter, and wall and i already had the plants and gravel so i think its great entertainment for $60! lol these guys crack me up! and im hoping to get some eggs in here soon, since i moved them to the new tank they have been tring to mate and they sing like crazy! and now i know wich ones are boys and girls im 100% of their sex's now! but i never would have new it keeping them in the land and water bowl set up!
