Ron, how are you liking the Geosesearma crabs? I've been tempted for a LONG time now and haven't bit the bullet yet. Thinking I might do a mixed mantis/ crab viv

Yeah, all my standard lamasi.......wahahaha!!!
No honestly, the orchid mantis only show interest in flying prey, so a terrestrial crab wouldn't ever even get a second look.
I'd love to do crabs and Deroplatys truncata, but those mantids are ruthless, and would likely destroy the crabs. Either way, both mantids are from Malaysia and I could do a pseudo biotope with Bulbophyllums and Nepenthes

I really like the crabs and they are a nice addition to the frog room. The type I have are formally undescribed: they aren't the red-faced "vampire" type, but what I believe people are referring to as "sp. Bicolor." They have an all-purple carapace with a colored splotch on their back that ranges from yellow to pink to orange.

They are pretty cryptic as well, so may not be for people who like to have things always out and visible all the time, but I catch glimpses of them here and there and observe them with a flashlight at night just to see how they're doing. I feed them Omega One flakes, bits of fruit and occasionally put some fruit flies in the tank. I just have them in a tank by themselves. Here is a shed from a couple weeks ago:

I have a vague memory of your thread on "disbiotopic" tanks. Do you have any other pictures of your wonderful frogroom?

I received more hate mail and angry PM's over that thread than anything else I've posted on here. Very few tanks contain garbage in them, but that was more because I had an infestation of tiny little spiders, and the insides of cans and rusty junk were perfect for them to not be predated upon and lay countless little egg sacks...so I removed much of it.

Most of these tanks are in their 2nd or 3rd year of growth--I prefer longevity in my systems and not having to redo a bunch of tanks every year or two. What this means is that sometimes a tank will become overgrown with a certain species of plant and it either overcrowds everything else and crashes, or I just start ripping handfuls of it out to allow room for other things to fill in, creating a sort of mini ecological succession.

Some of my tanks started out as growout tanks or a place for clippings...and ended up becoming permanent enclosures.

Problems aside, I think it is more natural a tank with garbage (like yours) than a tank with statues, skulls, little buddha, Roman or Mayan ruins, psychedelic lights, and so on. This is my opinion of course. Congratulations on your lush vivs!

Prepare to marvel at the lack of design...the utilitarian use of painter's tape...the feral growth of vegetation...the 'tape hinge' that tore when I lifted the lid to take a picture.

My recipe for getting a difficult-to-breed species to actually breed? Take an overgrown glass box, add frogs and mix in a healthy dose of benign neglect.
