Nice frogs and vivs, natural and lush! Congrats. I would add leaf litters in cobalt's tank, peat is ugly, IMO.

P.S.: Where are you from?

Is it sassifraga in your leuc's tank? How do you keep this plant so low?

I think its 'saxifraga stolonifera'. I don't do anything to keep it that low. It doesn't grow any higher than shown on the pictures

nice tanks.
I have till yet to get the hang of having my ferns stay alive in my tanks. I also like the breeding cups with half a lid cut off. I guess to keep the water in.

Its to keep the water in and also it is easier to take out eggs. You just take out half the lid and replace it with another

Thats a very neat looking cristo. I always hope for an odd ball froglet with every tad, but so far all the froglets I've brought up have been very ordinary.

How 'drowned'? This is the reason I am against ponds, pools, waterfalls and the like. They - if not well kept - are a receptacle for bacteria and they also steal room to the frogs.

Sorry for your loss! She was really nice and particular... Yesterday I emptied the cup of a neo Fuego Ancho: there was more water than a film canister full of water.

Frogs go to water when ill. This is why we hear about "drownings" They also don't "steal" room from the frogs. My frogs use water all the time when breeding and also deposit tads...

MyFrogs, very nice tanks and frogs!!

Points of view. I think water in a 18-inch Exo Terra is wasted space. Maybe it is not in large vivs. My first two vivs had ponds in a corner, I soon filled with clay and leaf litter.
But I must say that technique of construction and setting up of terrariums here is different: no false bottom, eggcrate and the like. Therefore it is more difficult filtering and cleaning water.

I'd like to hear more about your construction methods. Would you consider starting a new thread?

I have no pics to start a thread, and a thread without pictures is not very interesting, in my opinion.
It is not my intention to hijack this thread (I apologize for this), but I can answer briefly here.
We use a first layer of expanded clay (Leca), then "tessuto-non tessuto" (non-woven fabric, I don't know if this name is correct in English: this stuff is similar to Hydrofleeche but much thinner) and sphagnum peat. I also add dried sphagnum moss and charcoal (a little). Very simple, as you can see.
Probably MyFrogs uses 'Dendrobaten Terrariums': these have an inclined bottom which allows to collect water on the front. If not drained, the water can be a receptacle of bacteria and other.
Of course, nothing against viv or paludarium with ponds or pools if they have an efficient water filtration system. On the forum there are many fine examples, where I clicked "Like". But all these are great sized tanks.

P.S.: I ask again apologize to MyFrogs.

I indeed drain the water from the tanks. I normally use a misting system but went back to misting by hand. This gives me more control on howmuch water that gets in the tanks.

I have no doubt about it. I know your tank have a drain hole. My friends who use similar tanks have a drainage system that connects all the tanks.
But I use Exo Terra, so: manual drainage.

Beautiful setups! I especially like the leuc tank. I spend too much time daydreaming about traveling to Belgium for the beer -- now I can add frogs to the fantasy.
