I’m looking into purchasing a used 29gal (30x12x18) tank that I’m hoping to scape into something resembling tropical forests of Southeastern Asia. I’ve done a fair amount of research about...

    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...

    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 am new to this and I am looking for a little guidance on building my first viv. I have been reading up on this for a month now, and I finally feel like I am beginning to grasp what is required for a nice viv. FYI, I am still a good distance away from starting this. It will be 24x18x24. It...

    Good morning all. My husband RicknMo and I have been doing a lot of reading here and other places for the past month or so. We have experience maintaining saltwater reefs tanks and have been talking about dart frogs for a few years now. This is the year for us. We've decided on D. Tinctorius...

    Hi everyone, I've been reading this forum for months, and finally decided to build my own paludarium. I've thought of buying a 50-60 g tank, but it happened that I've found an old, rusty and hard stained aquarium in my gf's family garage. So, I guess this small 10 gallon tank would be my first...

    Hi Dendroboard, This is my first build and first post. I have been getting ideas for some time on dendroboard from countless posts. This would not have been possible without this community. I know, from many debated posts, that most frown on using foam and grout in vivarium constructions. So...

    I'm just about to start construction on my 7-year-old tank, and I'd love some member input. Planning on R. variabilis southerns. I'm going to attempt the great stuff background on the back and sides, and make "ledges" with rocks and driftwood and half-work rounds (which I think will hold up...
