Here are some pictures of my tank set up for four my barred tiger salamanders, Eugoogley, tilly, tom, and tiny. The moss is on its very last legs-my next delivery is coming tommorrow so all shall be new and lush once more! The tank is four foot long, one foot wide and 18 inches tall, and consists of pretty much equal land and water halves. The land is planted with ferns, and is 4-8 inches of compost, topped with moss (on a gravel bed for drainage) The gravel is topped with a muslin membrane to prevent pica. There are three caves to allow access to the compost for digging-this stops them messing up the moss! The use of caves also lets me put substrate on top of the caves-increasing available surface area for them. The largest cave actually goes under the water area-and there is compost underneath the water areas to allow further exploring and burrowing!
The water section starts with a paint roller tray-providing a good gradient for getting into and out of the water. This empties into a tilted storage box at the end-which gives a deep lagoon with a fun overhang which i have planted with ivy and ferns. the lid of the storage box provides a stepped ladder to let them get out once they are done playing crocodile. At first i had only a small water area, but when all four fancy a swim at the same time there isnt much space! also, i have noticed they prefered the deeper end of the roller tray-so i made a further deeper lagoon. Hope you like the pics!

thankyou! I have made it a bit better with new fresh moss, a mossy log background and a fogger. the fogger is mainly whimsicle, but it does cool down and humidify well!
