Default New floating dock

I bought a floating dock today with an eco terra hollow rock hide the rock hide is massive but the floating dock is big and quite good. I had to arrange the tank out to fit it in. A lot better than the one I made. Lol.

Default Re: New floating dock

I also use plastic (turtle) docks in my aquatic set ups rather than the usual floating cork bark. Their profile above the water line is much lower than the cork so I can fill the tanks almost to the top and take advantage of the full volume while still having enough room above the surface for the newts to emerge if they want.
I normally grow some terrestrial moss up there to make them look more natural and once it gets hold it looks quite nice.
What species do you keep in there?

There are two aquatic chinese firebelly newts and the eater of the two I got from you. The JFB comes out for a swim and climbs on all the plants. I will be putting the non eater in when it starts to eat too. I have two types of terrestrial moss on the dock. As the smaller one starts to swim more and goes aquatic, I will be putting more water in. I think I will finally have the dock about 3 inches below the top of the tank so there will be a lot of swimming room for them. Then see about getting a larger tank.
