I've mostly been out of the hobby the last year, so my tanks all need work...I'm in the midst of a major remodel, and a new build of a 35-42 gal hex, not sure of its exact size. The Hex will be my best yet I think, its coming together nicely incoporating everything I've learned to this point...My most complicated build yet. (Though if I ever get around to installing everything I want to maintain the right environment in the desert viv, I may have to retract that statement)...Enjoy

More pics of other vivs, construction and other crap here....

Sincerely,
Dave

P.S. Great vivs everybody!!!

Also here are some cool nature shots i've stumbled upon and saved...








Notice the 2 full sized helicoptors parked next to the pool inside!!!!





My guess is this one is "enhanced"...but there really are Biolumenecent bays and such where you can see this.
This one probably isnt photoshoped

Dave, that 46g bow at the top of your post with all the water, did you keep darts in there? Or is that too much of a drowning risk?

There were never any frogs in it after that remodel, but the tank has always had a similar water setup...I only ever had adult darts of the larger species like Auratus or azuerus in there...i think it was always auratus in that tank actually but not sure its been almost a couple years since that tank saw a dart frog. I never had any problems with them and the water. But I took measures to make sure there were mutiple points where the frog could climb out easily especially in the back corners. I wouldnt be comfortable leaving froglets in that tank...but as I dont think i had a pair i never worried about it. Never saw eggs, tads, froglets...nothin. If i had, i would have pulled them.

The only time I really remember one getting in the water other then a couple times when I scared em into it while messing with the tank, is one day I was just watching one of the frogs from across the room sitting on a large fake bonsai tree that used to be the center piece in there and he just all of a sudden did a dive into the water from about a foot above. Climbed out and went about his buisness...was kinda funny.

Usually if a frog drowns its because of 1 of 3 reasons...its been scared into the water and somehow got trapped in a spot or stressed to the point it drowns itself rather then leave (though I've actually never seen this, but worried it would happen when a frog got scared into the water a time or two.) 2. its held down by another frog. (...and I have seen frogs attempt to do this, and one advantage of that tank was that while there were shorter gradual enough slopes for the frogs to get out of the water, they dropped off to steeply to quickly in most spots for one frog to ever easily trap and hold another under the water without it being able to drop into deeper water and swim away. Only saw that one time) 3. Sick animals will sometimes fall into water and drown(i've had this happen with geckos, as for darts/mantella while I've never experienced it I've heard of several people having sick frogs go off and soak in the water then they either die there, or are to weak to climb out and drown.

The closest thing i've experienced to that is a black bassleri that disappeared for like 6 months finally reemerged a couple months after i gave up hope and stopped feeding (I of course dug through the tank several times to try and see if it was still there with no luck) But finally it popped out and I started trying to feed it but it was to far gone and only lasted 48 hours. The last day it was alive i found it soaking in the nearly empty pond section (water was barely over the gravel bottom) and am fairly certain if that pond would have been full it would have drowned probably. Not sure if was attempting to soak, fell down there and was too weak to get out without my help, or was there for no real reason...tank was very humid and well misted.
