  1. Tree frogs
    I'm getting my first WTFs from Josh's Frogs in a couple of weeks. I'm ordering 3 and can't wait! I do have some concerns over whether or not they need to be quarantined before being introduced to their enclosure. I'm setting the tank up soon (18 x 18 x 24) so that I can make sure the conditions...

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of setting up my first viv and I am planning on keeping Phyllobates vittatus once it has had time to establish. I am using a 20 long for this build, and I am currently in the final steps of making sure everything is where I want it. I purchased a piece of...

    Hello friends, I'm a new member and wow! What a resource you have here. I have been captivated by paludariums & vivariums on Instagram and Pinterest for months and am preparing to build my own for the first time. I've been doing my research via YouTube and this forum and feel like I have it...

    Hi All, This is my first post as I am new to your community. I have read tons of posts and spent hours going down the internet rabbit hole that is vivarium lighting. I am currently working on a new pallarium build in an old 29 gallon high tank (24 "x 12" x 16") I had lying around the garage...

    Hi everyone, this is my first time making a vivarium and my frog (i am a father to be) arrives in two weeks. My plants have been growing in the terrarium for about a week and a half now - I planted them originally and then realized I hadn't cleaned them, so I pulled them out, rinsed the roots...

    Hey! I have been reading everything I can find for a week and unlikely to stop any time soon, but there's been a few topics I haven't seen a consensus or enough detail on, so figured I'd ask some questions. (also, a lot of what I've been reading is 10+ years old.... I'm sure the knowledge has...

    I am new to the hobby and am setting up my first tank (20 gal high for a pair of leucs). I finished planting everything this week and set up an Exo-Terra Monsoon Solo misting system. I only have one nozzle set up in the upper right corner. Will that be enough to water all the plants in the tank...

  10. Beginner Discussion
    Hi! I'm a beginner in the hobby, or maybe not even that, as I don't yet have frogs. I have been planning a vivarium for years and just now got around to building it. It's not completely finished and definitely needs time to settle before I add frogs anyway, but I'm very excited to do so in maybe...

    I made a terrarium out of a big vas that has a seal, but i didnt use charcoal in it i made a false bottom with a netting over it and then the substrate then i added moss watered it and then closed it. My question is what chances of surviving does it have since i didnt use charcoal. I live in...

    So i've kept some basic geckos and tree frogs for about two-three years. And I wanted to start keeping and (if all goes well) breeding dartfrogs. I have a 20 gallon long that i've put aside to start this endeavour. I had my heart on setting it up vertically. But with further research, Ive...

    My mom and I have just planted our first viv. We're debating about what we want to put in it.. fond of p. terribilis but none are available in Calgary. It's a medium wide exo terra (18x24x18) with some sloping terrain and a variety of plants. We do intend on adding leaf litter before frogs. So...

    I have two male azureus dart frogs, and would like to add a different species with them. Do azureus get along with different types in captivity? My choice of preference would be either Dendrobates tinctorius, Oophaga pumilio, or Phyllobates terribilis. Although, I not sure if this is a good...

    Just purchased all of my plants/JoshFrogs essentials for my dart frogs. Any advice for getting design inspiration for the terrarium? Thanks!

    Hi all, I'm so glad I found this forum, it's been really great so far. I'd love some feedback on the hardscape I'm considering at the moment. The bare right side is going to have a little pond and I plan to run the water out of the right arm of the wood (there's naturally a hole at the center...

  20. General Health & Disease Treatment
    I just set up my terrarium 2 days ago and today a piece of driftwood was covered in mold. (Pic attached). What did I do wrong? I see mold in terrariums as algae in a fish tank. How can I get rid of it? Is it going to cover the plants and moss?
