Default Hey all, here's my viv

About 3 years old, sorry for the crappy pic 60x24x24 inches





Contains 2 D. azureus


And a breeding population of P. aurotaena, several of which have grown to maturity with any intervention by me.

Well, there are probably 30 plant species in there, but it's mostly ficus and bromeliads. The pond drains to a sump which is pumped bac up to 2 streams that flow from left to right across the substrate.

Lighting is 2 250 watt halides.

Very nice viv. I didn't realize that there were branches in it until I looked at your site. Very cool. Are the tomopterna still in there? I have a few Phyllomedusa myself.

Very nice viv Dan. That has to be great letting the auros breed on their own.That sure tell you that your viv has everything going for them.
Hvae you caught a male carrying tads yet?

Nope, haven't caught any males. Just noticed tads a couple of time, then frogletts!

That is really slick.

Are the P. aurotaena and the D. azureus together in that viv or are they separate (sorry if I'm asking a dumb question) ops:

What are you using for substrate? And how deep is it? When I see streams and ponds and something like a paph in there as well I'd be worried I'd rot out the roots. I assume that the water is contained well enough so that ground doesn't get too soggy. But on that note, it makes me think that phragmipediums would do well in a setup like that since they do seem to appreciate the ground being constantly moist.

Yep, they are both in there together. The treefrogs were in there too, but I gave them away. I just don't like raising/buying crickets!

The substrate is some mix of bark chunks, sphagnum etc. It was a few years ago, I forgot the exact proportions etc. One creek is in a fiberglass trough; the other runs down the inside of a big hollow log. But even so, the substrate is a bit on the damp side. The paph is about 3 years, so I guess its not that bad. It hasn't flowered yet, although many of the epiphytic ones have. A phrag, oddly enough has been barely lingering...
