    Re: Selecting a Clean-up Crew

    Not sure about the mud chimneys, but they are sold in most fish stores as feeders.

    Re: Selecting a Clean-up Crew

    You can use ghost shrimp (also called grass shrimp) they are native to the southern US.

  3. My 75 gallon SE Asian ‘crypt garden’

    I know, this isn’t a vivarium or paludarium build. (Being a mod has advantages, nobody will move this on me lol) It ‘almost’ was. I was going to recreate my Madagascar tank in a taller, 60g tank, but...
  4. Re: The Rainforest Exhibit VLOG: Follow our BIG VIVARIUM BUILD!

    You humble me, my friend. I did nothing but see a guy who had some cool, outside the box ideas, but lacked direction. I just held the street sign, you did everything. You asked the right questions,...
  5. Re: The Rainforest Exhibit VLOG: Follow our BIG VIVARIUM BUILD!

    You brought up something when you mentioned the orchids and people having issues with them, the mat is near and dear to my heart. Planning! A LOT of people don’t get exactly how important it is to...

    Re: Driftwood Question

    Yeah, the oven is an option. I have even used a propane grill to heat up some larger pieces.

    Spouses sometimes just don’t get it. It took my wife a few years of boiling pieces to actually trust...
  7. Re: Looking for advice navigating my first paludarium project.

    I think a lot has to do with their different natures. That’s the exact reason that I always recommend building for the particular animal being kept in the tank. My terrestrial species always had 90%...
  8. Re: The Rainforest Exhibit VLOG: Follow our BIG VIVARIUM BUILD!

    Oh, and as far as fish, if you want a true SA/CA species that is small and interesting looking, loom no further than Endler’s Live bearers. While almost extinct in nature, they are becoming even more...
  9. The Rainforest Exhibit VLOG: Follow our BIG VIVARIUM BUILD!

    Definitely a very cool build. A couple notes, although I may have missed points since I read through the thread rather quickly.

    A) Terribilis and RETF have quite different requirements since one...

    Re: Boston fern + unkown moss

    Excellent advice, my friend. Indeed a Boston fern will get monstrous. Regular trimming can keep it in check as well as snipping any runners that the plant will send out. A lemon fern or maybe a...
  11. Re: Looking for advice navigating my first paludarium project.

    I believe wholeheartedly in being ‘somewhat’ over cautious. It’s not a bad thing. For instance, I never recommend using smaller floating plants (I.e. duckweed, azolla sp) due to froglets can become...
  12. Re: Light for vivarium for Red Eyed tree frogs...

    I’m a little late to the party here, but A) plants do not require UV lighting, and B) 12 hours on/12 hours off is a decent light cycle for the plants.

    As far as wattage goes, that is not as...
  13. Re: Looking for advice navigating my first paludarium project.

    I have built paludariums ranging from 8 gallons to 125 gallons and the best piece of advice I can offer is this: decide on what inhabitants you want to stock it with, then build to suit that species....

    Re: Driftwood Question

    Boiling it for about 30 minutes wouldn’t hurt and is a nice little insurance policy against microscopic organisms that may be living in or on it.

    Best amphibian for small enclosure

    I agree 100%. That is way too small of an enclosure for any kind of amphibian, especially with no support equipment. A tarantula, walking stick, millipede or some other invert would be the best...

    Re: Best Hygrometer?

    I’ve been good. Had a catastrophe a few years back and lost my collection. I’m just now returning to building tanks. Aquatics and palus, no frogs. So I figured I would pop in and see what’s new. From...

    Re: Water cleaning in Paludarium

    I always ran submersible filters for my paludariums. If you design the tank well, you can easily access them for maintenance. One thing to keep in mind when building and sticking a Palu is to...

    Re: Best Hygrometer?

    Stick your head in the tank, if it gets wet, it’s too humid ;-)

    Re: Miracle Grow?

    Remember that water (and vapor) get everywhere, even in places you couldn't imagine. So, if that water were 'contaminated' and it's dripping from leaves, it's feasible that the animals could interact...
  22. Re: Ever use Glow in the dark mushrooms?

    They are safe for the frogs. Someone on the forum grew them years ago. They weren't very viable though.

    Re: Miracle Grow?

    Use fertilizers that are designed to be used for planted tanks. Seachem flourish or brightwell florin. Miracle grow is great for a garden and has the same chemical compounds with the exception of...

    Busy busy busy. Not really involved in the hobby at the present time. And I'll have even less time due to starting a new job in a couple weeks.
