Default Project External Prolapse

Finally got to moving this huge vivarium.
I had to move the vivarium itself with the 2 front glass openings out to help lighten the load a bit.
Up in Edmonton it's already below zero, was worried that some of the frogs would freeze. After having the viv set and and running for a few hours I'm happy to announce that frogs are appearing
Couldn't have done it without the help of my 2 grunts!
Keech & Jr, thank youse so very much!!!

Wow, what a big job! Glad it went smoothly. So did the frogs ride in-tank, sans doors?

The doors were on for the actual drive to the new place, only during the process of physically moving the tank did the doors come off.

Well done. Hopefully, no internal prolapses manifested either.

The wheel is a wonderful thing. Reduces grunting.

cheers

It was definitely a challenge and no prolapses ever manifested*from the move.
A taller dolly would have made it easier to load onto and off but I had height restrictions, and didn't feel comfortable just lifting the frameless tank to many times.

The tank has been going for just over 1 year now, I forgot to do the 1 year update on this site.
It's been a challenge mainly because of the choosing moss, mini xmas moss.
If I want the deep green coloured moss I have to turn down the evo quad to about 1/4 power, at the cost of brightly coloured bromeliads. If I turn the evo quad full power it burns the moss which in my experience is very light sensitive.
Now that I have a designated frog room I'm gonna experiment with different types of lighting.
I think I'm gonna start with suspended spot lighting at different elevations and hopefully I'll be able to find the sweet spot where both the bromeliads will brighten up and the moss will keep its deep greenery.
Promise to update once I see positive results.
Other then that, the take is doing wonderful, frogs seem to really enjoy it, they breed like crazy.
