I do. When I get home I will post it....I do think it said hymph net though.

And yes everything gets thourally cleaned my procedure is....


Soak overnight in declornaited fresh water....to loosen dirt. Scrup amd clean.

Next if it can fit in a pot it gets boiled with salt water. If not it is soaked in salt water over night.

Last I let dry then wipe down with vinegar to kill anything else before adding to the tank

It does not say on the tag. It just lists the name. I found it with all their floral stuff

I put up my climbing wall. And my cave. Eventually going to add the other side probably tomorrow. I am going to weave some fake vines through the netring and secure it in place. Also plan on foguring out some sort of canopy.

Alright, so I am adding the other half of the climbing wall today and buy plants to weave throughout the net this weekend.

I have been brainstorming how to do a canopy and still be able to reach the bottom for maintenance easily I had just thought of attaching it to the lid, but I am afraid of damage with me constantly removing the lid to add food top of water ect.... So I am thinking of doing something similar to a shower curtain. If I attach two rods to the front and back of the tank, I could put plastic rings on it, and attach the net that way. If I did this I can just slide it left or right when needed. Or maybe I am complicating things to much. This is what I am mulling over this week
