Default My room, and finished projects for the week

Here are a few pics of things I just wrapped up last weekend. I still need to build two more 10 verts, which are underway . Let me know what you think.


Exo Terra front opening 18x18x18 cube for a pair of pumilio almirante



Another of it


My rack for 4 - 10 verts, 2 - 10 flats, and 1 - exo terra vivarium


One corner of my room and my closet


While we are on the topic, what are good temperatures for D. pumilio almirante??? Is 80 degrees F too hot? 70degrees too cold??? THanks,

Ed Parker

78-80 is good for man creeks, same thing for bastis, mine quit calling if it gets close to 70.

That's interesting that you say that because my bastis have stopped calling ever since I get a window AC unit!

That is probably what happend Dave, I had to put two sets of shoplights above my pumilio tanks to keep them warmer, without heating up the rest of my frogs.

In response to all the inquiries of what is filling these tanks, here you are:

Left: two 29 gallons: top has nothing yet, bottom has a group of 5 mantella laevigata and loads of tads, eggs, etc.

Rack in closet: top left- two M. madagascariensis, right - A group of D. ventrimaculatus
Bottom of rack - exo terra viv - soon pumilio (tomorrow actually), M. milotympanum in the first 10 flat from the left, and the far right ten flat has 2 D. Auratus g/b

The smaller containers on the top shelf have: Pumilio Almirante, then D. ventrimaculatus "sean stewart Line", and M. Laevigata froglets.

Far right of room, the two bigger vivs. The top one is a 75 gallon, 48"x13"x22" - Soon will house my group of Adult ventrimaculatus as well as some additions I will be getting soon to make a large colony of vents, all the same blood line. The bottom viv is a 55 gallon, and it houses a group of 8 Mantella viridis.

The tupper ware containers on the right, under the big vivs house 1 waxy tree frog, 2 australian velvet geckos, 2 unidentified geckos, and a crested for now.

Thanks for all the replies

Ed

I really like all of your setups. If you don't mind, I have a question. What kind of light fixtures are you using. I need to find a cheap light that I can place directly on the tank like you have.

Thanks,
Amanda

oops, missed the lights question. Everything except for the two 29 gallons, the 55 gallon, and the d. auratus 10gallon flat have screw in compact bulbs. I went with 2 - 20 watt bulbs for the pumilio viv, 4 - 20 watt bulbs for the 75 gallon, and all the others have a single 10 watt. They come from walmart, have a 6500k rating, and I custom made all of the fixtures for them. THe 10 watts are in the fish tank section of walmart, and the 20 watts are called "sunlight" by bulbsofamerica. They are incredible lights, and I am very glad I went with the 20 watts over the pumilio now, as they increase the temp right up to about 80 degrees.

My wife would kill me if our room had that many tanks. Nice setups.

That mister in the last picture is the best mister I have found. It holds a decent amount of water and it also puts out a small mist. And it is pressurized so you don't get hand cramps or anything. Highly recommend.

Ryan, the bulbs are $5 each, for either the 10 watt or the 20 watt, so they really aren't that expensive. My plants love them too. I have a Fireball that was mostly green, that has been under a 20watt for the last 3 weeks, and it is almost bright red. Very cool,

Ed Parker

Derek, still need to take a pic for you

Ed, you said you custom made your light fixtures. Could you explain how that was done?
Thanks.
