  2. Member's Frogs & Vivariums
    Hello all, I've recently just joined but have been lurking for quite a few months while doing my first viv build. I just got 3x blackfoot froglets a couple weeks ago and they are fantastic! Super bold and funny, and don't care about me being around at all. I've learnt quite a bit, and while...

    Hello all! Somewhat new to the form here but want to thank everyone for being so kind and helpful so far. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with mounting ceramic heat fixtures inside of PVC enclosures? Would this eventually cause any potential issues due to 60%-70% humidity? When...

    Hello All, We have picked up a Fluval Plant 3.0 for our 36x18x24. Just wondering what others who have this light have set the colour intensity’s at, or if they just left them at default levels under auto? I have auto set as 6am to 8am sunrise, 8am to 6pm daytime, 6pm to 8pm sunset, 8pm to 11pm...

    In a recent post someone mentioned that my lights look very bright and I was wondering which lights other people use. For plant growth I've read that a light temperature >6000 K is optimal. At the moment I use a 45 cm Exo Terra Compact top with 2 8 watt forest canopy LEDs with 6500 K. I also...

    I have been reading lots of posts about issues with not seeing frogs and one of the reasons i keep seeing is your vivariums to bright. So with that said what is the line between to bright and not bright enough for the plants?

    Hello, first time posting so I apologize if this is the wrong area for this discussion. I got the terrasky tank light for my vivarium but after running it a little I have decided I wanted to get a timer for it like one of those outlet timers. However, I’d seen other members mention issues about...

    Hi all! I'm new here, but this community has already helped me so much with planning my first ever paludarium for an amphibian friend. I have a 30cmx30cmx60cm tank (so for Imperial measurement users, it's under 12 inches wide). It's by Exo Terra and so it has a rim and mesh lid. How on earth...

    I’ve been struggling with my bromeliads and other plants (except the moss) in my paludarium, I’m new to this so unsure exactly what my problem is, it’s been over 2 months since setting up and most the bromeliads have little to no root growth, at the start I was getting some great root growth...

    I'm getting ready to set up a growout tank in a translucent plastic bin, as that's what I've seen many use. Query - I plan on including plants in the tank, but if a light is placed on top of the translucent lid will the lid prevent the light from sufficiently reaching the plants? Maybe just...

    I am new to the hobby and purchased a 36x18x18 Exo Terra today. I have been reading up on lighting but am still a bit confused on what would be best to purchase. Does the light bar need to be the exact width of the tank? One option I am looking at is the Koval branded light on Amazon - it is 36...

    Hello, has anyone ever used the NICREW SkyLED Plus light? If so, how was it? I'm looking for a decent light to color up neos, that isn't too expensive. Any responses would be appreciated, thanks!

    I have been getting a lot of mixed info on all of the lighting stuff, but the main goal is to get some nice color on some small neorgelia species. The color doesn’t have to be a ton, only enought to get some basic reds and purples. Here is a light that I was looking at, it would be in a fixture...

    Hello, I currently have a 5000k light and plan on getting bromeliads. I want a good light to get nice colors, so I planned on upgrading to a 6500k LED bulb. As of right now the 5000k looks a good white color, so Im wondering if 6500k would look too blue. everyone says that neorgelias need 6500k...

    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...

    Hello all, I wanted to share my lighting that I use on my tanks for inspiration for others that would like to do the same thing. I'm a techy person and like to implement tech into my aquariums, vivariums, etc... Anyway, one big part of mimicking a biome is the lighting such as the weather, moon...

    Hello there! I'm fairly new to this hobby, having found this forum a bit after setting up my vivarium. It's been planted now for right at two months, and I'm having some issues with a couple of the plants in it. I have a 10 gallon horizontal aquarium setup that I got a plant pack for from...

    Making my second viv and need to figure out the lighting. For my first viv (exo terra 12x12x18) I just went with compact top and a jungle dawn led - pretty straightforward. With a 20 gallon tall there's more to look into. Anyone have any budget LED options? Everything I see posted here is $100+...

    I'm looking for an LED light to put on a 24" cubed tank. I've boiled it down to a spectral design LED system and the Fluval Plant 3.0 system. Both have a mix of R/B and white LEDs. I like the control feature of the Fluval as it allows you to customize the blend of light spectrum to the viewers...
