That looks amazing, what size is the tank, and what exactly did you have in it?

well first off... thank you!!!! an why i let him tear it down... lol....i figured it was his money that paid for it to be build when he asked me to build it so when he wanted it down.. it was his call i guess lol
its a 125 gallon tank which is mine. it was heartbreaking cus i put so much work into it. the fog is a simple fogger we got for like 20-30 bucks at our LFS. Im new here so im assuming LFS means local fish store lol
but we had a tree frog in there.. a black n red frog, 4 different lil turtles, silver dollars, albino shark, catfish thingy, 2 other silver fish, 2 angel fish and guppies. i was lookin for a lizard to put in there since the orchids and tropical plants were loving it in there. ive always had bad luck with orchids till this tank deal.
we had a lil ich issue in the tank which i cleared up. i was about to get some cichlids in there but we moved the animals into a 20 gallon tank which i made a beach mounted on pebbles. i feel bad cus i built them a whole world and took it away from them. but the 20 gallon isnt that bad. we lost many of the fish to ich so they are happy now since there arent to many fish in the smal area. the frogs catch the crickets alot easier now also and i have 2 prego guppies so its will be easier to check that out.. if the shark doesnt eat the eggs first.

yea i have them in the 20 gallon now.. they are tiny lil ones and all they doo is chill out on the floating island until its time to eat. they ofcourse were more active in the big tank with a whole world to explore but they are happy i think. they each have their special spots where they hang out with a leg up in the air :)

That was a beautiful set up, i love the variety of creatures sharing the same terrarium. Very impressive. I do feel i should warn you though that a shark and stingray combination will outgrow a 125 fairly quickly, I would choose one or the other. Anyway, great video and let me know if I can help you out at all during your tanks transition : )

yea ive been hearingthe same thing about the sharks. were actually waiting on 2 lps's for a ready to hatch shark egg. i figure this way we have more time to enjoy it in our tank! theres also a big fish store here in florida called Big Al's where the place is like a giant aquarium. Ive never seen a fish store like it. kinda like a fish museum. pretty awesome. and they do their shark feeding for the public on tues nights. Im thinkin that when these guys outgrow us.. we can hand them over to Big Al's and they can be taken care of pretty good there while we can continue to visit them.
as for the terrarium.. i miss it here but im glad i have the video of it. it was pretty fascinating. it was my first time ever doing anything like it. people tell me to go into biz doing it. its something im thinkin about.
