    Re: Red Eye Tree Frog Build

    Honestly, if you balance out your misting properly, you almost never have to siphon. I wouldn’t risk drilling post build, especially on a tank this large. The surface area if the false bottom is so...

    Re: What can I stock in a 36x18x18 terrarium?

    You definitely have to go with more terrestrial species. Preferably, Phyllobates terribilis. You could go with Dendrobates Tinctorius, but P. terribilis are definitely the most terrestrial of frogs,...

    Re: American Green Tree Frog Turned Dark Green

    Usually, at least from what I've seen, variation in color is completely normal. In fact, AGTFs will change their skin coloration depending upon their environment. Sometimes, my frog is a bright...

    Re: Red Eye Tree Frog Build

    This is a really awesome set-up. The wood placement and background look fantastic, and I love how you're giving the frogs so much room. I love the ledge you created. Don't get frustrated, though,...

    Re: Lighting in Dart Frog Terrarium

    Since LEDs tend to not be very warm, many keepers will use heat mats (sometimes more than one on a tank) in order to get the tank up to the proper temperature. 15/16 degrees celsius is at the very...

    Re: Temp issues

    Are you able to get another heat mat? On other tanks, I've placed two or three heat mats in order to get it up to a certain temp.

    Re: Lighting in Dart Frog Terrarium

    Is there any reason for the heat lamp? Does it get very cold in the room where the tank is being kept? The best lighting right now is LED lighting, and there are several brands out there. If you're...

    Hey everybody. I just finished my newest build last week, and I thought that I would share some pictures. I plan to house a group of 4 or 5 Denrobates leucomelas in there.

    Re: new build

    First time seeing this, sorry. I assume your entire top is glass, judging from the humidity? It's usually best to have either a vent that covers around 20% of the top of the tank, or large holes...

    Re: Three frogs, one tank?

    I agree, I would recommend you get an 18x18x24 zoo med or exo terra, they can sometimes be found cheap on craigslist, or regular price at most pet stores. White's tree frogs are for one, pretty...

    Re: Compact lighting

    Maybe check out some of the hardware stores near you. I've gotten some cheap CFL bulbs that were rated for "daylight" (around 5000-6500K temperature) this way. They aren't the brightest or most...

    Re: Robertus? Maybe something else?

    The genus is Dendrobates, the species tinctorius, and the 'robertus' refers to the locale of the frog. Sometimes this locale is named after a location, sometimes it may even be given a vernacular...

    Re: How well do frogs travel?

    I'm in uni also, but I also have the luxury of parents who can feed my frogs I have at home. I don't worry about lighting or misting, as that's all set up with timers. Also, my home town is only...

    That skull looks awesome, it goes perfectly with the theme. Some of those branches may be too thin, but I'm not entirely sure, as many people do use manzanita branches (which I assume those are?) for...

    Re: Vivarium lighting question

    I'm so glad I found this post. I'm setting up a 24x18x36 exo terra right now, and have already obtained the lights for the tank. You most certainly do not need to drop $700 on lights. For the bulk of...

    I love it, it's like a Halloween-themed tank. If you are only using those few plants, then having more horizontal pieces of wood to increase usable surface area shouldn't be a problem because it...

    It's usually best to just place them on a tree or a nice large green leaf where they can blend in. I agree that some amphibians can be very hardy when it comes to environmental conditions around...

    You should be perfectly fine to release him at the time that you have stated. Five days is not nearly long enough a time for a frog to permanently (in a relative sense) acclimate to new temperatures....

    Do you know how tall it is exactly in inches or centimeters? Generally speaking, tree frogs like to have taller tanks due to their arboreal habitat, hence their name. A tank should be a minimum of 18...

    The most difficult aspect of temperate plants is that they often require a wet/dry cycling as well as a cold and warm season to do well. Ferns and mosses tend to be better acclimated to terrarium...

    It shouldn't be toxic, but it might be best to give it a bleach bath before placing it in any sort of terrarium with a frog. For any live plants in my tanks, I usually soak them in a 10% bleach...
