    Hi all! I’m starting a thread to document the construction of my 10g vert vivarium. I love the idea of making a small and ecosystem in my room. The design isn’t perfect, and nor is my construction, but I had fun making it. I’m hoping the viv will fit a pair of Ranitomeya, either imitator...

    Since I finally got to work on my 24 x 18 x 18 ExoTerra I picked up off Craigslist, I decided it would be appropriate to start a build log, mainly for my own documentation. I plan to update this periodically as I get components finished, so fair warning it might be a couple months before...

    Hey everyone, I have been working on an enclosure which is a tv cabinet turned into a display vivarium. It is a corner cabinet (not a perfect triangle but similar to it) and is between 135-150 gallons. I would love to keep 5 mint terribilis when the time comes, do you all think that will be a...

    I apologize ahead of time for the presence of links instead of images. I've tried numerous times in different threads to get the images to work. After reviewing the rules of the site, I think I have not posted enough times to be allowed to insert direct images. I hope you still enjoy the thread...
  6. New Members Introductions
    I posted a couple of weeks ago as a new member. I thought I'd use my second post in the new members forum to give a small update on whats going on with my tank and ask a few questions about the build and future inhabitants. I'll try to post the pictures using the function within the message...

    Good Morning Everyone, I was fairly active on the forum a little over a year ago when researching how to build a vivarium for my two P. terribilis. Everyone was very helpful and the project turned out well. I wanted to share how the enclosure looks after 18 months of plant growth! Thanks...

    Hi, all! I have been lurking here on dendroboard for years and made an account a few months ago as I prepared to get back into the hobby. A few years back I started out with a group of 5 R. variabilis in an 18x18x24 exo terra. Being my first build, I was never happy with the tank. Pair...

    Hello, I am new to frog keeping and don't currently own any frogs. I have been keeping fish for several years, and have done research and so know the basics of keeping frogs. I was going to start setting up a tank rather soon and I have some questions. First, would you consider Dendrobates...

    So this particular tank/build isn't for dart frogs; it's for hatchling mourning geckos. General husbandry for hatchlings is keeping them in pairs in a deli cup, but I wanted to see if I could push this any further. :) -------------------------- Build #1 Initially the build used the original...
  15. General Discussion
    I recently saw a comment that said a moss layer between ABG and leaf litter is no longer the preferred method. I tried a search and couldn't find more about this. Is this the general consensus now?

    Well, I'm going to take the plunge and get a vivarium started. I've had orchids and reef tanks for years and years but never a big vivarium. I have a little cube terrarium that's been up for 4 years or so now which houses some bulbophyllums, ferns, moss, and tiny begonias. Everything is getting...

It's a 24x18x24 Exo Terra with the mesh lid replaced with a solid piece of 5mm clear Acrylic (which I plan to put some small ventilation holes in). Background consists of black silicone on the glass, covered in expanding...

    Been a while since I have done a build and shared :) Picked up this EXO a while back and had my Sonoran Desert Toad in it until I traded it off. Been sitting in the garage since then. I brought it in, built a stand, and cleaned it up. So far have stripped the screen tops out and built the...

    Greetings all. So I seem to have jumped right off the deep end. After acquiring a juvi Frilled Dragon I repurposed a 35g tall aquarium for him. Although it came out pretty decent for a first time builder I really started to feel like he needed his permanent and much larger home sooner rather...
