Hi Dendroboard!

I have been happily lurking for several weeks, so I figured I should introduce myself.

A little about me: Previously (~15 years ago), I had a pair of jungle carpet pythons, and one of the few captive bred scrub pythons available at the time. I think the things that drew me to Indo-Australian pythons then are the same things drawing me to darts today: the impressive number of species, and the remarkable amount of locality variation within certain species. To that end, I love that the dart frog community is so dedicated to preserving the many locality lineages encountered among various species.

A little about my plans: To start, I have picked up a 20 gallon high aquarium that I plan to use as a low-stakes practice viv to get my first exposure to creating a background, arranging plants, etc. I would like to convert it to a vert, but I'm not sure there are many entry-level frogs that would do well in that configuration. A pair of leucs, maybe? If that build goes reasonably well, I would like to build my own euro style vivariums from scratch going forward. My goal, like many of you, is to create vivariums that are ideally-suited to their occupants, naturalistic, aesthetically pleasing, and uncomplicated to maintain.

It has been fun lurking around. Right now I feel like I'm learning something invaluable practically every day. Hopefully, in time, I will have things to share that are as useful and enjoyable as everything I have read thus far!

Looking forward to all the learning still to come,

-Collin

That's the fourfold path to success.

Welcome!

Thank you both for the welcome!

Quick question: I see that I need to post here twice before certain functions are available to me. Does that mean two threads, or two posts of any sort?

My understanding is two meaningful posts but Iím sure a moderator will chime in. It has been awhile for me to know what is and isnít limited but if I recall there is 99% of the forum available except for the vendor portion. Welcome and have fun!
