    This is my fist attempt of a Vivarium build out. Basically followed the tank-less kit from Josh's frog as a template, purchased from a bunch of vendors trying to lower my $$ output. Looking to go with either "Cobalts" or "Banded" Leucs. Now just waiting for the Viv to pretty much have...

    Hello Everyone! I am a newbie to the hobby--I just started out last month with a pair of D. auratus. Of course, PDFs are like potato chips, so I bought a pair of D. tinctorius azureus and a pair of red galacts last week too (all in separate vivariums, of course). I have been interested in...

    Hi I am new to owning a dart frog. Finding it fascinating so far. Never thought I would be one to be cultivating bugs. Now I have cultures & containers of different critters creepy crawling for food and clean up. I have yet to brave feeding the flour beetle larva to my auratus. Still looking...

    Just finished and planted some stuff. Peperomia Orba on the bottom and Bromeliad Felix and Wild Tiger. Moss up top that is half dead, I think it will come back. I think I may take away the bromeliad on the ghost wood, just not sure where to place it. I am also worried about the bromeliad in...

    Hello! I have currently bought a quite large exo terra vivarium and I am interested in using it to create my first large tropical vivarium.

    Greetings! I've had aquariums of various sorts for most of my life. Been dry for a couple years focusing on rehabbing my house and yard, but just bought a used 15G column tank, with the excuse that I wanted to set up a paludarium to support growing out some tadpoles for my son to watch. Of...
