    Default Vivarium question

    Hello everyone,

    I am looking to potentially put a waterfall in a terrarium for dart frogs. I am wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to put one in as pondless or if anyone has seen one? If not, I donít want the poison dart frogs to drown or have any problems, does anyone have any ideas for other options?

    I am also wondering if anyone could share pictures of their setups for thumbnail poison dart frogs?

    Thank you for your help.

    It’s doable but think practicality. Elaborate waterfalls look great but the can be hard to maintain.
    1. Easy access to the pump: you’ll need to clean it every so often or unjamb bits of substrate and roots
    2. Plan plan plan: it takes patience and practice to get the water to flow the way you want it to
    3. Do you have adequate means of egress: I don’t trust my larger frogs with deep water but thumbnails will be fine.
    4. Plan again! It’s good to do a practice build first before you commit to a final build. Fit and test everything before you plant and add animals.
    5. Watch some tutorials: Serpa design has some great YouTube videoa

    I have a waterfall in my 12◊12◊18 Vivarium and my tincs don't seem to be troubled by it, I did have to make some adjustments seeing in all it's a table top waterfall, like cover any small openings or use mesh to make sure my frogs dont accidentally get stuck where the pump is. I have to clean the filter and pump frequently cause the fruit flies like to commit suicide and get stuck.Name:  20190905_090256.jpg
