Making a new tank for my hourglass tree frogs, thought some of you might be interested in seeing the process. By the way if people are interested in setups like this or even just the kits itself let me know I can hook you up or set up one for you.

Anyways here you go

Starting out with just a 10 gallon and vertical kit


Bottom pane with hinge attached


Now upper screen in place


The fun part
Mixing clay (cat litter)


My blend of soil


Mixed small amount soil in with clay (no more than 25%) and begin covering the back


Covering the clay with soil


Sticking a piece of wood into the background


And initial planting


Little bit of moss added to bottom


Side view


Tree Frogs will be added tomorrow.

Are those tops with the hinges made or did you buy them? I have a ton of 10 gallons lying around and thought this would be cool to try.

You mentioned kits in your post. I am interested in the cost of the kits.
