you are going to use a waterfall we suggest at this time you place
the waterfall in your aquarium and hookup all of the water lines.
Some waterfalls come with a kind of Tupperware looking container
that is used to hold the water that is constantly re-circulated. At
this time if you feel handy what you can do is, take an extra 2 feet
or so of clear vinyl tubing and hook one end into the part of the
waterfall that returns the water to the Tupperware container or
tank, punch small holes in the vinyl tubing about every 4 inches
making sure that they are on the top when you lay the vinyl tubing
down. Now route
the vinyl tubing around your plants in a kind of circular shape,
this will return the water from the waterfall across the whole area
of your tank allowing for greater circulation and better filtering
without using the Tupperware container. The large aquarium gavel
will act as a kind of biological filter. The illustration on the
left is shown without the plants so that you can see exactly where
the vinyl tubing is.
to pour in the large gravel. On the side of your tank that will be
water make it about 1 inch deep sloping up to your land area that
will be about 4 inches deep covering your potted plants. The reason
for using large gravel is that your frogs will not be able to eat
it. If you have
owned frogs before you will know how clumsy they are when eating,
they will swallow any thing that is near or attached to there food .
What is an
ultra sonic fogger? It is a small device that creates mist or fog.
If you purchased an Ultra Sonic fogger place this on the side of
your tank that will be water. Run the wire underneath the gravel and
behind your waterfall, coming out of your tank the same place as the
wire for your pump this will make things look a lot more natural and
