  1. Re: New hobbyist with some questions about my vivarium set up.

    My problem with them is that I posit legitimate questions and I get lousy responses. The site is also full of viruses and is not easy to use. I don’t purport to be an expert on anything in life and...
  2. Re: New hobbyist with some questions about my vivarium set up.

    I also forgot. For most species you don’t want the enclosure soaking wet. Maintaining high humidity is important but you don’t want a saturated substrate. This is particularly applicable to tincs....
  3. Re: New hobbyist with some questions about my vivarium set up.

    I live on the island too and yes it’s been hot as hell. The more climate control you can get now though the better off you will be and you’ll be thanking yourself next summer lol. Anything over 79...
  4. Re: New hobbyist with some questions about my vivarium set up.

    What species are you planning on keeping and what size vivarium are you using? Lights can throw off some heat depending on the type of bulb you are using so the fans are a good start. Also ambient...
  5. Re: 15 gallon aquarium suitable for for thumbnail pair?

    Galacs can be a bit shy and are considered more of an intermediate to advanced species. Personally I consider anything in the phylobates genus to be the best beginner darts but again they don’t...
  6. Re: 15 gallon aquarium suitable for for thumbnail pair?

    Well, they do make noise when they call but epidobates anthonyi would be a good species for you.They are hardy, small, inexpensive, colorful, do ok in groups and breed like crazy. If you can get...
  7. Re: 15 gallon aquarium suitable for for thumbnail pair?

    Are you planning on converting it to a vertical? And are you getting a sexed pair? Thumbnails can be tricky. Social dynamics can develop into problems within a group so yes bigger is better. Iíd go...
  8. Re: safe way to preserve small logs with central holes for tree frogs

    I wouldn’t add any preservatives at all. I’d also try to identify what species of tree the logs are from as well. Avoid pines and cedars.
  9. Re: new white's tree frogs not eating or moving

    Ok your setup sounds good. Iíd continue to offer live 1/4 to 1/2 inch crickets every other day or so and monitor them closely. Iím sorry the seller didnít provide you with at the very least some...
  10. Re: new white's tree frogs not eating or moving

    Welcome to the hobby. I’m going to ask a few questions and offer some suggestions to get you on track. Obviously though, I cannot get into all the care specifics but we need to begin somewhere. I’d...

    Re: Phyllomedusa Bicolor HELP!!

    I would try offering prey often. Anything you think appropriate will do. However fruitflies are poor in nutrients so you may want to dust them. If you can, get pinhead crickets. All I can say is be...

    Re: Phyllomedusa Bicolor HELP!!

    Ok your husbandry seems to be spot on. I might consider switching the substrate to plain moist paper towels as it may be easier for them to spot the prey items and it can give you an idea as to...

    Re: Phyllomedusa Bicolor HELP!!

    Can you describe the setup in detail? These guys like it a bit drier than most and will bask given the opportunity so Provide a uv/heat combo light and keep a basking spot near 80 at the top of the...
  14. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    I looked over the ruling and it’s vague. It seems to apply more to large constrictors and I couldn’t find anything relevant to salamanders in the wording. If you post a link that mentions them...
  15. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    The Lacey Act was amended by FWS in 2016 and it now lists 201 species of salamander as injurious. It essentially bans sale ownership and transport of almost all salamanders. There is a strain of...

    Re: Homemade cricket gut load

    I just use cold water. Hot water is not going to make a difference. Just give them a good wash and you should be fine

    Re: my boys seem to want to get out

    What type of furnishings do you have in the enclosure? Offering some type of cover such as plastic plants at the top of the enclosure or some cork rounds leaned up against the sides may help.

    Re: Homemade cricket gut load

    I’ve been using an alternating schedule of carrots and organic dandelion greens as my base. I’ll add a little dry dog food now and then (maybe once a month or two). Endives are good and so is kale...

    Re: Toad with red leg???

    Excellent. Give it a week or two and keep your fingers crossed.
  20. Re: I built a Bioactive Vivarium for toads... but now I want a Leopard Frog

    I agree. There isn’t a tremendous amount of care information, particularly regarding native species in the hobby. Honestly it never hurts to subscribe to some scientific journals though. They offer...
  21. Re: Separating flightless fruit flies from dust?

    I pour a little supplement into a 32 oz deli cups, add the flies and shake. It’s easy once you get the hang of it and it allows you to dust more evenly. As far as removing excess dust the best way is...
  22. Re: I built a Bioactive Vivarium for toads... but now I want a Leopard Frog

    You obviously spent a substantial amount of time on your build and it looks great. However it’s not appropriate for leopard frogs. I’d consider a different species since it would be a shame to break...

    Re: Tell me if this can work

    I’d avoid the combination entirely. Feeder guppies will in all likelihood be consumed and there is the risk them passing on pathogens including but not limited to parasites. Also the genus bombina...

    Re: cricket safety

    It’s unlikely that you’ll have problems. I just wouldn’t make a habit of it.
