    I realized the longer I put this off the bigger of a job it would be to start this thread so I better get to it asap ;) I've had an interest in dart frogs for 10 years +/-, and loved the idea of natural spaces "indoors" since I was a little girl (although my younger daydreams involved massive...

    So basically i'm looking for a good lighting option for my future 18 by 18 by 36 viv. I've heard good things about the Aqua Illumination Fresh Water, has anyone worked with it?

    Hey All, So like many of you I purchased and built an exo terra vivarium only to find out that once frogs were brought home and fruit flies introduced I suddenly had more flies running around my house than in the tank. That being said, I did purchase some SiFly silicone strips off...

    Hi all, I guess this is the only forum I can post in. I’ve been pursuing this board foe a couple of months learning all I can. I just finished or almost finished my first tank. Still waiting for more plants next week. Right now I’m just doing plants but I built it with frogs in mind. Not sure...

    Hello, I have been working on a new exo terra tank for my dart frogs and managed to mangle the piece of the vent under the doors that is removable. I contacted exo-terra and they don't sell that piece. I am wondering if anyone on here has a 24 inch wide model that they are now longer using or...

    Figured I should start a build thread since my tank finally has some traction to it. I was in the hobby about 4-5 years ago. Since then a lot has happened... graduated college, got a big boy job, bought a house, got married, and FINALLY got approval from the wife (ok... the tank just showed up...

    I own and use zoomeds. I know for a fact that ff's escape through the cracks of the door. I am doing 2 builds, 1 for a family member and one for a friend. Their tanks are exos. My questions are; 1. Can the ff's escape thru the top screen? (Glass cover doesn't cover it all) so if they can...

    Hi, first post here! Hopefully more to come as I build this thing! I want to create a vivarium with a decent amount of water in the bottom for some shrimp and small fish. I've been looking at the 18x18x24 Exo Terra, however I haven't been able to find the depth of the water proof bottom. It...

    Hello, guys. I bought a used Large Wide Exo Terra Terrarium - 90 x 45 x 45 cm / 36” x 18” x 18” (WxDxH), but all the sillicon was messed up, the glass was all stained with minerals, and a door was broken... so I decided to rebuild this baby from scratch. This is the Terrarium, and even it...

    Hello Dendroboard! I'm Spdybee and this is my first post here. Been lurking for a couple of years now, reading and learning. Since I've started my first real viv I thought I would document the process to share my experiences like so many of you have. First a little history. I say...

    Hello everyone, I would like to share a build I am currently in the process of working on. It is an Exo Terra 24x18x36. For the centerpiece, I have tied several large ghostwood pieces together to form the bulk of the tree, and then placed that over a piece of 3" PVC pipe for a little extra...

    I started constructing an 18x18x24 Exo Terra for a 2.1 trio of Southern Variabilis that I will be getting in about 2 weeks. This will be a build log on how I did what I did. This build is heavily inspired by the Twisted Root build (although I did not have a twisted root), but in reality I have...

    Hey everyone, It's been a long while since I posted on here, but I've decided to give this another shot. This is my second attempt at building a vivarium. The first one I built, I used the "kitty litter clay" method, and it did not turn out so well :(. I was satisfied initially with the...

    Hi guys! I've been lurking around the forums for a couple of years and doing research and I'm finally taking the dive in! I've been collecting supplies the past couple of weeks and have gotten a little done. I've completed the false bottom and have siliconed the back and a third of the sides...

    I'm looking into LED lighting options for my 36W"x18"Dx24H" Exo and I could use some suggestions... I've heard great things about the jungle dawns but am not a fan of the bulky hoods. I've also looked into the current USA satellite LED and it looked like a great sleek option but is apparently...

    Hi All, I've been reading thru the forums and visiting facebook - I'm glad to see all the new stuff in the hobby. I've been collecting dart frogs for almost 20 years but had to take a two year break from the hobby for several reasons. A few months ago my hobby buddy Walter, who had also taken...
