Re: What are the best broms for Darts??
I had a 29 H I just tore it down to house my Neurergus kaiseri larvae.
A little background the Viv was 10 years old. I had crushed limestone as a "drainage layer". I did not have a barrier in place. My substrate consisted of dirt, sticks, bark and leaves. The substrate was always saturated to the point that I even had a "vernal pool" in a low spot that I would sometimes suck the water out with a turkey baster.
The Broms I would buy at Lowes or home depot and they would always be potted so I would plant them in the substrate. I used a shoplite for light which was raised to also act as a light source for the area. Needless to say when I dumped the viv, it was stone soup. Springtails and auratus actually did well in it isopods and broms not so well.
Im currently doing a new build with a 40 breeder. Im using home made ABG, currently waiting for the tree fern bark to arrive. . Using hydroton for drainage and a double layer of fiber glass screen for a barrier. I will try to attach the broms to wood instead of planting. Thanks David
