  1. Plants
    Hi guys, I recently built this terrarium and let it cycle. However, I wasn't completely happy with it, because the frogs would not have hiding spots, so I added wood. Currently it is like this: Soon after, lights stopped working so for this past three days I have used a normal reading lamp...

    Hi everyone, I just got my vivarium going about one week ago. Plants are in and I have springtails and dwarf white isopod cultures in there too. Humidity has been 85-99% with temps 73-81 F. I noticed green/white mold starting to pop up yesterday on my cork throughout the tank. I have a picture...

    I have some sort of mold growing on the side of piece of driftwood that is fomed higher in the background where springtails can't really get too. It's only on a certain piece of wood, the other pieces (same humidity, temperature right next to it) do no. I've searched the forum first to see if...

    Well, I finally have some time off to start putting together my vivarium. I have gone back and forth regarding live vivarium vs ...fake/sterile - so I have supplies for both. My BIG concern regarding living vivaria is mold/bacteria, etc at the very bottom of the vivarium - if the springtails...

    So for some reason I am unable to post in any of the forums (Probably because I just made my account). I have noticed a black fungus growing over the past couple weeks. I got really busy and forgot to clean it out. It grew all over the terrarium and I pulled as much of it out that I could get...

  8. General Discussion
    I just set up my terrarium 2 days ago and today a piece of driftwood was covered in mold. (Pic attached). What did I do wrong? I see mold in terrariums as algae in a fish tank. How can I get rid of it? Is it going to cover the plants and moss?

  10. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello, I am new to the world of tadpole rearing and very new to this forum (just joined this afternoon). I am volunteering in a herpetology lab where the resident leucomelas frogs have been laying like crazy. I finally had two tadpoles hatched out and set up, but both died today. One had been...

  12. Parts & Construction
    I'm in the process of my first build. I used way too much Great Stuff, but it turned out okay. I let it sit overnight and started cutting holes into the great stuff for plants and the inside is still gooey. My question is, should i coat the inside of the holes with silicone? With Great Stuff...
  13. Food & Feeding
    Hello Everyone, One of my fly cultures which is about a week old has a small amount of blue mold growing down by the medium. This is the first time in hundreds of cultures I have had this problem. I make my cultures with both vinegar and yeast. Should I consider the culture a lost cause or...
  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    hello I was wondering if any one knew how to prevent or get rid of the mold that forms on the food. I loose at least a quarter of my tads to it when they go to eat the food the mold forms in there mouth and they die a few days later. I could use some real help thanks. tyler
  15. Beginner Discussion
    Hello all, Yes, I am a beginner, yes I have a mold question, and yes I have read other threads on the topic (so please don't judge me too harshly):) My question is this, I have a relatively new viv set up, it's been about 3 weeks, I've been seeing a little bit of the "spider-web" looking mold...
  16. General Discussion
    I've noticed some mold or fungus growing in my newly planted viv. I've heard it's common for this to happen but it seems to only be growing on my wood pieces which are in close proximity to a plant. I'm just worried the mold will take over the tank before I can even put frogs in it. There are...

    I recently went on vacation for a few weeks and when I came back I had an over abundance of this white fungus mold looking stuff stuck all over my center piece of drift wood. Does anyone know what this is. Could it be a byproduct of the over abundance of mushrooms that have been springing up?
  18. Plants
    I am having some problems with a white mold taking over the right side of my tank and killing all my moss. I have tried removing the parts most heavily infested with it but it keeps getting worse. This tank is over 10 months old so it isn't the new tank bloom. Any ideas on how to stop its...
