    Re: Viv/palu size dilemma

    Thankyou Larry for the response!

    Ugh. It breaks my heart that frogs are kept in less than fair enclosure sizes. [emoji45]

    Re: Glass and silicon question

    OK. It was suggested elsewhere that I just cut away the silicon to prevent the failure of bonding silicon on silicon! I didn't like that idea, I do not want to compromise the original seal of the...

    Re: Coco fibre background

    Thanks privet01,

    I've read good and bad about coco fibre matting now, it seems it may not stand the test of time very well, and will rot or break away. Reinforcing it would help with breaking...

    Glass and silicon question

    So I'm putting a glass divider in my tank and in my tank already there is silicon along the inside edges. I've read that silicon doesn't really stick to silicon, so is there something I can...

    Using it instead of the lava rock/clay balls. Pure hardwood charcoal is how it was described to me. Maybe its not the activated stuff?

    Drainage layer question

    I'm planning on building a viv and I've come across scoria (lava rock?) being used as a drainage layer instead of, say, leca/clay balls.
