  1. Re: Looking for a frog - recomendations, please!

    Anyone? I was poking around Josh's Frogs and looking at thumbnail darts. It seems like a pair would work.
  2. Looking for a frog - recomendations, please!

    Hi all! I'm considering getting into frogs again (had a group of bumble bee toads a few years ago, but that tank is long gone).

    I have set up a terrarium with decently high humidity for some...

    Re: Using open cell foam as planting medium

    Thanks Bill. I will probably mostly do epiphytes on it, but in the lower reaches, where plant roots will be in the water, I may try something with a little higher nutrient requirement.

    Using open cell foam as planting medium

    Hi all! Long time, no post. But I am wondering if you guys can offer some advice on something.

    I have some leftover Poret foam, which is a rigid open cell foam, from an old aquarium build. ...

    Re: Viv update - bumble bee toads

    Yeah, I had a few that got too wet and turned to mush. They just did not want to stay mounted where I wanted them, they had to self-murder in the soil. Bratty plants LOL. The remaining ones are...

    Re: Viv update - bumble bee toads

    It's not duckweed, it's azolla caroliniana that got huge, but yes, it's in water over the gravel. I have more tillies in there than you can see in the pictures. Most aren't doing as well as I'd...

    Viv update - bumble bee toads

    Time for an update on my only tank! My bumble bee toad tank :)

    After I took these shots, I removed some dead moss clumps (no idea how moss can even die :/ ) and raised the water level, also added...

    Re: How much and how often to feed

    Oh I should also note, I seeded the tank with springtails as well. But unfortunately this was at the same time as I added the toads, so I have no idea how many survived. My culture is still going...

    Re: How much and how often to feed

    They aren't baby babies... at least not according to the size charts. Supposedly males will get to be about 3/4" long, mine are almost that. They are sold as well-started juvies at Josh's Frogs...

    How much and how often to feed

    Hi all!

    I've had my little bumble bee toadlets going strong for a bit now. Everyone is doing well thus far and they really like all the moss hides in their tank now. I asked this question before...

    Bumble Bee Toad pics!!

    Because they are so incredibly adorable, here are some pictures of my bumble bee toads, and their viv which is finally 100% complete (my moss arrived - yay!). I have (I think) two young males and...

    Re: A few random questions from a newb

    Well, the philodendron was starting to get a bit melty on the wood. I went ahead and planted it in the soil next to the root. Hopefully it does better there.

    Humidity seems to have stabilized...

    Okay, pictures!

    I added the begonia, ferns, and philodendron sp. Got a nice shot of the philodendron. Curious to see how it does growing on the wood like that. If it starts to fail, I'll move...

    Re: A few random questions from a newb

    Woot update! Isos are in. I wasn't able to get springtails (don't know what that's about) but will probably just order them with the toads. I need some other stuff from Josh's Frogs anyway.

    I...

    Haha don't worry Bill, if I was to get a termite "culture" I'd just introduce them directly to the tank. Don't think I'd actually try to raise them. Doubt if I actually could lol. Okay, so where...

    Re: A few random questions from a newb

    That's odd, I had heard they were a good natural source of calcium for amphibians. :/ I will have to look into that more before I feed them lol. What is a bean beetle?

    Are there any very small land snails that won't eat my plants? Obviously that would be a bad thing lol. If not, no biggie, I have isos as a cleanup crew, just thought a single small snail would...

    A few random questions from a newb

    Hi all! I'm in the process of setting up my viv (again after a drainage layer failure). I had a few questions. I'm going to have to reorder my springtail and iso cultures - springs didn't make it...
  21. Re: Harvesting Isopods and Springtails for a tank rebuild

    Yeah, I learned the hard way that Isos drown LOL.

    I had only just seeded the tank, nothing lives in it yet. I suspect the springtails arrived DOA because of heat, so I wasn't feeding them, I...
  22. Harvesting Isopods and Springtails for a tank rebuild

    Hi All!

    So, I stupidly messed up and when rearranging some plants in my viv, got a ton of dirt into the drainage layer. It's officially time to rebuild! So, I'm wondering, how do I go about...

    That's a good idea, Amy :) I wouldn't have been so unnerved by it, but it's so unusual for SoCal and it lasted an entire week. Yikes lol! I actually now have an AC and Heater, both of which dry...

    What do you mean? The water section is just a bathing pool, no waterfall or anything fancy. Just a place for them to get wet. The tank is very low-tech, nothing electrical attached to it except...

    Re: Bumble Bee Toad tank build

    Thanks Paul :) I don't know if you replied on my other thread (I think you did) but those toads didn't make it. Consensus is a humidity issue in their QT.
