    I have a calathea I'd like to use in a tank. In the past, I've used bleach and water to clean my plants (followed by a rinse in water with dechlorinator + allowing them to sit for a week or so.)...

    Re: Use of ceramics or bisqueware in vivarium

    Thanks - I'll head to the clay shop in town and ask about suitable clays there. I assume anything safe for an aquarium, clay-wise, would be safe for frogs? I'll definitely stay away from any...

    I can definitely completely sterilize it (soak + bleach + bake/boil, in that order? removing all bleach residue of course)

    Re: Canned Crickets + Woodlice

    I did read about the nutritional thing - would dusting the pieces offset that at all? I've been using Repashy Calcium Plus to dust all their food (flies/fruit flies for the most part before now.)...

    I'm setting up an enclosure for tree frogs and was looking for potential woods and plants to use as climbing items. I noticed an already-dead branch on a fatsia japonica in my garden and broke it...

    Thank you for the reply :)
    When it happens, I've been nudging them towards their water with a leaf to wash it off (they're pretty tame.) Of course that means a tiny bit of vitamin goes in the water...

    Can I plant a hosta in a terrarium for green and gold bell frogs? They aren't being fed anything that would eat it, just house flies at the moment. I can't find it on any toxic or nontoxic plant...
