first blog post

Posted 09-11-2008 at 05:25 AM by markbudde

I'm not exactly sure how this will work, but I'm going to try and write down everything about my viv here. Ad nauseum. Then I'll be able to use it as a reference in the future... I hope this doesn't muddy up everybody else's blogs/posts.

So today I found that I have 1, maybe 2 fertile eggs. They are about a week old, and wiggle when you pick up the canister. I could only see one cause the dude was sitting on the other one, so I only know that one is good.

I reapplied Sluggo today. I put it on THICK, like 1 pellet per 2 square inches. I put some in about 10 days ago and haven't seen any slugs/snails since then. Last time I did this I didn't reapply and they came back in force. Hopefully If I keep reapplying every 10 days or so for a few months it will take care of the problem. My frogs don't venture into the leaf litter anymore and iron phosphate isn't supposed to be very toxic to non-molluscs/worms.

My broms are turning yellow, which I attribute to the fact that I just switched from 4x48" T8s to 4x5 watt compact fluorescents with AH supply reflectors. I think its too much light, not too much heat, but I could be wrong. I'm going to back off the lights. Before I was doing lights A on at 7:30, lights B on at 9:30, lights A off at 7:30, lights B off at 9:30. I'm going to try lights A on at 7:30, off at 2, Lights B on at 12, off at 9:30. I dont know if I need to back off the intensity, but I guess we'll see.
