Default D. reticulatus viv

A few months ago, I started this viv as an experiment and then decided to put some D. reticulatus in it later on (thanks Brian!). Its been a while since I posted a viv so I thought you all might like to see this one.

Oct. 08


Dec. 08






And one of its inhabitants. There are 2 but the other is quite shy. This one pictured here hops around like nothings going on even when my hands are in the viv. Lil' bastard!

I beleive it was to see if those "moss panels" would work in a viv. So does this mean you are going to start selling them Antone?

You said that moss panel viv looked good and you were right! That brom is awesome too. Is that one that you sell on your site? I don't think I've seen it on there. The frogs are sweet as well. All around awesome!

Yeah, the experiment was to see if the background "stuff" would survive in the viv. The plants on it have acclimated quite well, especially the java moss.

Its a 20 gal viv. The brom is some no name hybrid that I grow. Its nice but I don't sell it b/c I only have a few.

Now that the panels have survived, I will start to make and sell them.

Thanks for the nice comments!

I can't remember what all was on that panel. Is it mainly java moss and looks like saginella? It's a pretty cool look and should probably be a good seller.

These 2 have Java Moss, Medinilla sessifolia, Selaginella kraussiana, S. uncinata, Ficus pumila var. quercifolia, some random opportunistic ferns, Oxalis (weeds!!) and I think thats it.

Thanks. The lights are just 2 spiral fluorescent daylight bulbs that GE makes. These are the 26W(100W) ones and are suspended over the viv.
