It's so bright and colorful - lots of foliage and branches at the top of the tank. Your gecko, when you get it, is going to be very happy!

I have planned this out for a while. I made the logs with torched pvc and cut grooves in it to make it look realistic. I used the great stuff foam for ponds which is black for the back and sides. Covered the foam with aquarium silicone then covered with eco earth. Measured the temp of the logs before I secured them in place for basking spots of 90 to 95 degrees and cool spots of 75 to 80 degrees. I placed hydroballs in the bottom with a screen layer then added ABG substrate which drains nicely. I purchased a reptizoo misting system that works really well. I also created a fogger from a cool mist humidifier that works really well. While waiting on warmer temps that will give the plants a chance to grow in. Will give updates in the future.

[MENTION=28346]ranger519[/MENTION] This looks absolutely amazing! I am sure your gecko is happy as could be.

I'm looking into building a decked out viv for my day gecko and would love to know (if you are willing to share) more details on DIY PVC logs. I have not come across something like that and would really like to know in a little more detail how you made them.
