this is 3 pictures

both views, front and back view of the tank, and then a picture of it with the wallpaper I used for decoration.

I am ordering 13 C. gracilis (florida species) as soon as my paypal account clears. in a week or two.

I was just wondering if this setup is okay.

They'll love it. They also like hides close to the substrate, like under rocks and stuff.

They like the moist substrate, it does look like there are some dry areas, nowadays I just dump a cup of water in the enclosure and then let thee substrate soak it up. Obviously, I wouldn't do this to burrowers. Just the gracilis. Smile

Excellent setup, they'll enjoy that.

Get the substrate moistened completely an it will be perfect.

Btw, if you want to make the tank look really nice, you could add some live Pothos plants to make it look more natural.

Excellent idea, that would make a nice contrast.
I like your background poster, also a cork backdrop would look nice in there.

what are pothos plants ??

the dirt isn't that deep its like 1 and a half inches.

and if they need light to survive the plant will probably die right ?

I would like some plants tho that will give the tank some oxygen

Well, just add some substrate if you wish.

When I say "Pothos", I'm referring to Epipremnum aureum, commonly sold as "golden pothos" as they were previously in that genus.

The need very little light to survive, and can actually tolerate a complete drying of the soil for a brief period of time; they're very hardy plants.

You can buy them at places like Lowe's and Home Depot.

You may have to split the plants apart, as they're sold with several plants crammed together in a pot.

I usually separate them into plants (or clusters of plants) with anywhere from 2-10 leaves.
