What sized tank is that?

Beautiful frogs, and fantastic vivarium. That is one crazy looking vine you've got in there.

Now this may seem like a rude question and it isn't intended to be but...

What is the hump looking protrusion on the back of the frog in the picture? I've never seen that before.

The viv aint bad. I'm not liking the leggy reddish plant on the right but your background is fantastic. Nice work.

That is a good question. I have no clue. I have had them for about a month and it was like that when I got them. I had another that just died unfortunately from what seemed like a calcium deficiency. It also had the same thing in the same spot. I knew it didnt seem right but they were young and I figured that it was something they might grow out of and I was probably just getting worried over nothing. But now im not as sure. But one person thinks that he might have seen the similar thing on a darklands froglet and it might just be from the frog being young.

Thanks man. Thats weird cause I like that plant alot. It definetaly looks alot better in person that it does in the photo. Its a monochaetum sp I think from Ecuador. . I was also thinkign about replanting it being the large vine. and sticking another lower grwing plant in the front there. [/quote]

That looks really nice!

Do you plan on adding any ground cover? It looks so lush up top, but so barren down below!

Looks great! Good Lcuk with the darklands.

Now heres just my two cents.
More leaf litter and possibly a brom or two with large deep "pockety" axles, but its hard to tell from the picture.

You dont need much groundcover i think darklands prefer leaf litter.

Nice looking viv!
Is that a phragmipedium or a paph. 1/2 way up on the right?
Your Mediocalcar spp. may need to be relocated to a location that gets less water. New growths dying off is a good indicator that the plant is staying too wet. My $0.02.

Greg,

Thanks for the answer and for not getting angry. I was purely curious and didn't mean to point out a flaw if there is one. The frog is gorgeous.

The leggy plant is pretty neat looking though. How did you do the background?

Shawn,

Go suck an egg. :lol:

Same old way we all do great stuff and bedding ect...... And when I was ready for planting I just stuck the sheets of tropical moss over it that black jungle sells. The stuff just forms right over it. Instant moss coverage.

You wont be sorry. I waited a while before I got into orchids and was really happy when I started useing them. I really like them just as much when they arent im bloom as in whehn they arent. With a little knowledge you should be able to keep them alive.
