  1. Beginner Discussion
    I am pretty new to Dendrobates, and I am coming from fish keeping so I was thinking: Is it ok to forage for leaf litter, forest hummus, mud, moss, etc from the woods? I have a reserve near my home. I already do it in anaerobic filtration and for biodiversity in fishtanks, also use for my...

    I made a bioactive viv about 6 months ago and put rehydrated forest moss as a layer on top. The moss started as a faded greenish yellow color and is now brown. I use treated tap whatever whenever watering the enclosure and it is very humid in there. Will this harm my frogs? Should i replace the...

    I could use some advice on moss species. What is best for carpeting the ground, epiphytic on driftwood and climbing the background walls? Java Moss appears to be a favorite on this board for its striking color, but is expensive and looks to come in only small packages making it difficult for my...

    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...

    I really just want to buy "low growing tropical moss" Moss that i have been seeing everywhere but can not find a link or site to buy from. I found that it could be bought here under the marketplace but I need to post 25 times and an undisclosed amount of time must have passed. Can anyone direct...

    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...
  8. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    My ranitomeya imitator FINALLY laid eggs! I was stoked!!!! but unfortunately, they were duds =( So i decided next time around, I'll let the parents, be parents. I wasn't checking for eggs aggressively. So last week, when I was feeding them, I checked my bromeliads, my small water bowl, and film...

    I made a terrarium out of a big vas that has a seal, but i didnt use charcoal in it i made a false bottom with a netting over it and then the substrate then i added moss watered it and then closed it. My question is what chances of surviving does it have since i didnt use charcoal. I live in...

    So I'm almost finished with my first vivarium and will have a portion of my plant "growout" chamber free for awhile and figured I'd do an experiment with the different mediums for growing mosses. I currently grow an unknown moss i scraped from the base of a brom on a standard microfiber towel...

    Second mandatory post before I can do more stuff and y'all are assured I'm not a spam robot. ;) My mosses are starting to spread! Also fun grammar fact: 'The plural form mosses is used when more than one kind of moss is meant. The plural is moss when referring to a collection of moss plants of...

    Hello. I am doing timelapses of mosses growing for a project. As mosses are sensitive to changes in moisture levels, I am trying to find a way to keep the relative humidity in the grow chamber steady over the weeks or months that will be needed to do the shots. I also have to keep the air moving...

    So I'm building my 6-year-old crested gecko a vivarium this summer, after finding success using a vivarium for a trio of pd tincs and I'm wondering what orchids and mosses would thrive in those conditions, any other plant suggestions are welcome to, also can I use marcgravia in those conditions...

    Just thought I would post a thread about the success I am having with the bromeliads I received about 2 months ago. Some of you know we have a project going on called The Rainforest Exhibit. we are building a large indoor rainforest vivarium in the largest Amphibious Aquarium ever made by...
  15. Parts & Construction
    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...

    Good Evening, I am in the process of building a fully planted vivarium. This won't be my first, as I have a chameleon with trees and pothos in a huge viv, but it will be my first custom backdrop fully planted dart frog enclosure. Currently I've followed the general strategies of pond foam/coco...

    I have some sphagnum moss and I was wondering if it will grow well on a cork branch.

    I was wondering if there are any guides online of the mosses? Like an image of each kind of moss, their preferences, rate of growth etc. I'm kinda struggling to find any detailed guides covering most of common mosses in the hobby. If anyone knows any good guides it would mean a lot to me, thanks.

    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...
