Default Re: Virtual Frog Owner No More! Dendrobates Tinc Tree Frog???

John: Thanks for the advice. There is, however, a thin piece of plexiglass separating the hood from the tank, so the frog is never able to make contact. I am using two smaller fluorescent bulbs which seem to be keeping the tank a nice 72 degrees during the day; 68 degrees at night.

I bought a large .220" piece of plexiglass at the hardware store that will replace the flimsy piece there now. I plan to install a vent with computer case circulating fan to keep the front glass condensation free (and an air exchange for the plants) and another access vent will connect to a humidifier. It is all being done in a small 10-gallon perspective so that I can learn from my mistakes. By the spring, I should know for certain the sex of my Patricia and be ready to complete my full-scale 65-gallon project and add a mate.

The neatest thing about all this is (1) my little frog is doing very well thanks to all I have learned here and in the DartFrogz site (thanks everybody) and (2) my wife has taken an unexpected interest in the frog, the plants and the whole care process. She is into photography and has taken numerous pics of the tank already and its just something I threw together! If I can now only get her to culture fruit flies, it would be a marriage made in froggy heaven!!

Just a heads up. I have a similar top for my fish and there might be little areas under the lid where your new PDF can get stuck. And if you have a light bulb in it, your viv might end up too hot for a PDF.
