Additional Information This is a tri-level "Mini Jungle". The right side water depth is 36", center 24" and left side 7" deep. The 7" side is designed for mudskippers. They have been in the display for over 1 year. This is first and foremost a animal display. mollusks, crustaceans, fish, amphibians, and reptiles are all included. Both diurnal and nocturnal animals are to be placed. Several species have yet to arrive. The display contains dozens of species of terrestrial and epiphytic plants most have in more than 1 1/2 years. The Philodendron bipinnatifidum has been intentionally placed. It provides basking and feeding sites for Phelsumas and needed shade for orchids as well as nutrient transport. I remove one 24" leaf every 3 weeks. I would like to thank the distinguished judges for their time, and point out that "It's a Jungle in There." Look for our female anablep in side photo, she's in the center on the right and 24" below to left is a skipper (see close up photo). Turtle display has separate filter system to prevent quarantining problems with feeders.
