    Sharing my new albino bullfrog tank that I've setup yesterday. A bare empty tank with only water dish and HOB filter. This will be a temporary setup for now till I find time to gather materials and convert it to a half land and half water vivarium setup.

    Development work on this tank has been slow due to CNY etc.
    Finally started to build something today.



    Bought 2 blocks of brown styrofoam from Daiso and have them cut out to form a divider for the dry/wet land.

    Added the lecca pallets and realised that I didn't have enough.



    The shape of the leftover branch that I had didn't match the setup that I wanted so I took a quick walk around the neighbourhood to find some nice thick branches.

    Not far down the street I felt that I had struck gold.



    I patiently waited for them to cut a nice piece and asked one of the puzzled worker if I could have it. Much to the amazement and curiosity of his colleagues.

    Dragged the branch back to my house, on the way getting the usual stares (not the first time I did this) and looks from passerbys.
    Cut out the excess branches.

    Re: Albino Bullfrog Setup

    Here is how it looks in my tank. Still have no idea how to shape it and how the final look will be like.



    Time to break for lunch as suddenly CO wanted to go out for some last minute shopping.

    Just spent the last few hours setting up the tank.



    Filling up the dry land portion.

    Re: Albino Bullfrog Setup

    Started filling up the wet half with water. At this point I realised that I had made my'noobest' mistake ever.
    After being away from fully aquatic setups for so long, it slipped my mind that stryofoam does float on water, and the partition started to float up a little.



    I ended up solving the problem by cutting up large cavity inside the stryofoam blocks which were filled with sand from the dry half that helped to anchor the blocks down.

    After the water settled, I added the frogs back into their tank.

    Next would be to add more types of plants, increase the water level and add a few red and orange mollies/platies.

    Re: Albino Bullfrog Setup

    Surprised to see today some shoots sprouting out from the tree branch. I guessed the branch managed to keep itself alive as it was freshly cut off from the tree.
    It would be nice to see leaves growing out, making it a mini live tree in this tank. Will update again.

    Re: Albino Bullfrog Setup

    nice setup and interesting to see the branch grow...
    btw, you submerged the OHF in water or you elevate it out of water?

    The branches grew and sprouted leaves but I didn't managed to take a picture of it before it went 'botak' again. The species of the branch was the kind that had tiny leaves that would drop easily in a strong wind (the ones that when you park your car in an open spaced carpark and find your car covered with tiny leaves after a heavy rain).

    THE OHF is submerged in water. Its a little raised but its body is still in contact with the water. Any concerns on that?

    No idea if its a rain tree though.
    But I guess mating season has started?

    Re: Albino Bullfrog Setup

    Some revamp of their tank as they seem to have destroyed all the plants in the original setup. The leaves on the branches have all fallen off and waiting for new ones to sprout again.
    Cable tied some money plants to the branch to let them attach onto it.

    I've place some feeders fishes in the water area too which the frogs love to feast.
