hygrolon

  1. Beginner Discussion
    Currently finishing up carving my great stuff background. Should I stop it just above the substrate line or let it go under the substrate line when lining it with hygrolon? I plan on siliconing all the edges exposed to glass as well.

    Hi everyone, I am hoping to get an insight into the general timeline for the dusk moss mix in your experience. When should people expect to see the first bit of green and also when should moss clearly be visible? Timeline pics of the growth would be most appreciated! Currently, I have dusk moss...

    This is my first post so sorry if it's in the incorrect section(I didn't see much regarding this using the search results) . I'm wondering if just regular Polyester fabric / poly-blend would be sufficient as a growth medium? Hygrolons website states it's just Polyetylentereftalat...

    I'm slowly working on creating my newest build. I bought a 18x18x36 ZooMed Skyscraper tank, Mistking starter setup, and Spectral Designs LED fixture. I want to make bromeliads and misc tropicals the focus of this setup. My biggest challenge is that I really don't want a 3D background into this...

    Hey All, Just wanted to start a construction journal so I could have everything in one place. Also to help others who may be planning a vivarium. I guess I am attempting combine various construction methods I've seen on dendroboard and the idea is to make a relatively low maintenance tank. I...

    Hello all! I'm not totally finished with this tank but I think it's close enough to post. This will eventually house my R. imitator 'Chazuta' pair after it grows in for awhile. The initial mockup. I wanted to do something with this leftover piece of driftwood from an older build of mine...

    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...

    Well I have had this Exo terra sitting around for almost 2 years since being in school prohibited me from building but couldn't pass it up when petsmart had them for $100. I planning this build for either some Oyapoks or Lorenzo tincs. Im looking at building the background with epiweb and some...

    Hello all, I have a small side project, non-tank wise. I have always enjoyed someone else's project (Mika) with making a 'Hygrolog Fake Log' that was located on the orchidsforum.com with a quick tutorial as well. I didn't use the exact same method but rigged up my own that was much smaller than...

    This will be the photo thread for my orchid tank. I'm still not sure if I'm going to put any frogs in, but if anyone has suggestions I'd be willing to entertain the idea. Here's the build log: future office distraction (pics as I go) And on to the good stuff. Full tank shot: pleurothallis...

    Hello Everyone, I am looking to build a new 29 gallon vert and am exploring the possibility of doing a tree fern build. My past verts have all been corkbark mosaic but I am looking to try something different. If you have any pictures of treefern tanks please post away or if you think going...

    I don't think I've shown this before. It's a 12x12x18" exo tank that I put together quite recently, the interior is all left over scrap pieces from previous builds and all but one of the ferns are hitchhikers. I think it turned out pretty good for 15 minutes or so of work:p I don't think I'll...

    So I'm thinking of redoing or perhaps getting rid of my paludarium, but before I do so I would like to show it to you guys:) It's ~66 gallons (250l) with Epiweb (and some Hygrolon here and there) background. The pictures kinda sucks, but they will have to do for now. As for inhabitants I...

    When I first got my frogs I had some of the people there tell me they wont be my last and I guess their right cause I'm making another viv. My first one was a 15 gallon tall that houses two green imitators, and 2 tadpoles :D. So for my 2nd viv I decided to something more terrestrial with an...

    I am testing out the new Hygrolon material that Folius has provided us that are interested in the US. I am hoping to update once a month in terms of growth. These will be in a grow out tank layered in sphagnum moss which is on top of a false bottom over water. I have: -small liana vine -small...
