That is really quite stunning. Frogparty, you seem to keep lots of orchids in your vivs, do you have a problem with the frogs trampling them at all?

Angry Re: Rhyncopera(Pleurothallis) fastidiosa

How did you get rid of the slugs? Alot of my lepanthes would grow and then the leaf tips would mysteriously fall off. I realized that slugs were getting to them so I bleached the most valuable plants and put them in a separate tank. They are all kicking back now but the viv still has some slugs!! I hate them sooo much. Just now I found a dresslerella with 5 new growths chewed off!!

remove your frogs and tads. Get some dry ice and a deli cup 1/2" of water. drop the dry ice in the water, seal the tank for 36-48 hours. remove. All should be dead.

replace frogs.
