  1. Beginner Discussion
    I'm going to make a huge batch of ABG mix as I need substrate for 4 vivs. I need some clarification with the ingredients. The following are the ingredients I was able to find over here in the UK but I'm not sure if they are the same as the ones needed. Moss peat - I can't find milled peat...

    I have been looking into making my own ABG mix but I can't find tree fern anywhere online. Should I just suck it up and order the pre-made mix or does anyone know of an online distributor of tree fern?
  3. Plants
    I've seen several older articles that have made mention of very slow growth, pale green, or yellowing leaves. Recently I found an interesting study by the University of Hawaii on "Charcoal Volatile Matter Content Affects Plant Growth and Nitrogen Availability in an Infertile Tropical Soil"...

    I know there's a better area to post this, but I'm stuck here for now and might as well practice with real questions. Has anyone tried the ABG mix from BluePumilio.com? It seems like a relatively low price for ABG, and their seven-part recipe looks right to me: "28.5% Fine Tree Fern Fiber...

  7. Parts & Construction
    I am going to slowly start building a 20g viv and I am seeing many ways to do the bottom. I don't plan on having a water feature so do I need a false bottom? If so how high should it be and should I use egg crate or hydroton. For substrate I plan to just use ABG so does that influence the bottom...
  8. Dendroboard.com Feedback, Help Desk & Questions
    I'm finding it difficult to navigate/use this site. Searching for ABG gives me no results found in all the different forums.... Try to find what should be in a substrate? What to put down before the "soil" and on top of the mesh/false bottom? Good luck - I haven't felt this inept since I was...

  10. Beginner Discussion
    Ok, I'm almost ready to start my first build, just need more $$$. I have read up on just about everything I can think of for weeks now, and I have a few basic questions - 1) When put down the base layer (hydroton), then cover it with the substate divider (fiberglass screen), should water be...
