Started a vivarium...another addiction.

So I am in the process of setting up a vivarium to keep poison dart frogs. I don't know why I do this to myself but so far it seems like it is going to be a really cool hobby to spend what is left of my money on. Here are a couple pictures of the viv so far, no frogs, still in the setup/growout phase...

Very cool. I almost set up a vivarium but at the time I was trying to get away from reef tanks and find something a bit easier/cheaper... viviariums arent either of those things!

BTW, your "walk around" pics on n-r are amazing. Great shots!

Thanks. Your a member there? What name do you go by?

***nevermind...I found you on there, same name. Just never noticed or at least never connected the two places together. At least now I can look for ya over there. ***
Yeah, the vivarium was not cheap but not as much as setting up a SW tank. But then again, it would have been if I had to buy the tank. I am setting up a 75g tank but I had that on hand already so that saved my $150+. I think that I am in about $300 on the viv so far with no frogs. I think that I am about done though other than some tweaking. The frogs I want are about $50 each x 5 so another $250-300 and I should be done. I think that other than the initial startup costs the maintenance is pretty low cost if you culture your own food which I am.
