I am really new to this hobby. I've been researching for about a month now and this really helped me with identifying species as well as the over all way of going about building my viv and what to do BEFORE purchasing my PDF. Just wanted to say thank you for the great advice.

Awesome post! I can never get enough of this site. I go to look up one thing, and three hours later I am still on here researching my 5th subject. I really liked the favorite husbandry tool, I think it was started by philsuma

these two threads should be added into that list..

this section was completely left out and is crucial to beginners
Food & Feeding - Dendroboard

I'm not trying to say this info isn't helpful to some but a lot of people don't see it a very helpful.
I had one person just say this...

gather supplies as you research and it won't put such a huge dent in your wallet as it would if you was to get everything at once.
I saved up everything and wound up only spending like $50 to complete the build but it all it costed me like about $100 or more.
most was bought using gift cards so if you have a bday coming up ask for Lowes and JoshsFrogs (Josh's Frogs - Largest online herps feeders and reptile supplies store) gift cards lol

this is gonna be your best friend and you can find everything you need here:
yup the search feature
search for:
GS backgrounds
False bottom
ABG Mix (the truth about ABG mix is the best thread on this)
How to culture Springtails
How to culture Fruit Flies
Search for your local state group on here and get you some frogging buddies who can help you obtain supplies locally or you can purchase frogs, cultures, and supplies off them.

search 'poison dart frogs' on Google and find out which one stands out to you but you need to find out if they are for beginners or not.
there are care sheets on here for a lot of PDFs and you can find care sheets elsewhere.
these little guys are pretty expensive and just the shipping can cost $50 or more.
I'm looking at $120 for the ones I'm thinking about getting and they are some of the cheapest.
be prepared to have spent at least $250 or more by time you're done

good luck and welcome to the community!
good luck and I hope to see a build thread from you soon

and they are right about the water feature. I did a build when I had only been on here for a few months with a water feature and it didn't turn out to well.
best to wait till you get experience.

here is the thread where I got this

those threads are helpful but there is parts missing.
not trying to rub you the wrong way or anything lol that is not my intentions.
there is so many threads about people asking what they need and i think we need a good solid thread that points them all in the right direction and will not leave anything untouched.

thanks for your time and I hope you consider this
