  1. New Members Introductions
    I'm in the early stages of frog research here. I live in Alberta and it's cold. My house usually sits in the 16-20 (60-68) degree range. This is a little chilly for frogs.. Does anyone have luck using a heat lamp or ceramic heat emitter (obviously regulated to low with a thermostat) to add some...
  2. Member's Frogs & Vivariums
    I'm in the process of cobbling together a temp/Hum monitor with control for 4 relays. The plan is to automate some functions (misting, lighting, cooling/heating) based on real-time readings. Once I have a working proto I will release the drawing, code, parts lists, etc.
  3. Parts & Construction
    I've been working on on this: http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/parts-construction/344082-95g-corner-tank-build-journal.html and one of the things I wanted to closely monitor (and automate) was the temperature. It's in a room that, while air conditioned, does get somewhat warm during the summer...

    Hello all! for the past 3 months, I have been looking for somthing to control my newest tree frog conservation tank. I'm in the range of about $300 to spend, and would like features such as wifi compatible, around 4 outputs, can control precise heating, cooling, dehumidifying features and can...
  5. Parts & Construction
    I am in the process of planning my first PDF vivarium. It's likely going to be 24x22x24 or something similar to that. My house is typically at a temperature of around 68F in the winter and 78-82F in the summer, with A/C (I live in Missouri). I was wondering, under these conditions, is it...
  6. Dendroboard.com Feedback, Help Desk & Questions
    As a scientist by profession and a bit of a control freak by nature, I'd love to see a forum about environmental monitoring (perhaps under the "Vivariums" topic). If you do 't measure it you don't know if its broken, and if you don't measure it with accurate equipment your measurements don't...

    Hello all, I am new to this forum and keeping dart frogs. I have been setting up a vivarium in preparations for some frogs. The last element, microfauna, should arrive this week! I am repurposing an old aquarium that had a light system in the hood. However, I've been monitoring the...
  8. General Discussion
    Yesterday I got two Oophaga pumilio cristobals. I cannot keep my tank humid and warm. The temperature stays in the 69-72F range. I know for most frogs that is fine but I heard that pumilio prefer upper 70s. My lighting is an exo terra UVB 100 and an exo terra natural light. I have a fogger that...
  9. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I've done a bunch of reading about eggs and tads, but I'm still confused about a couple of things. 1. The Egg Care Sheet on this forum has a link to a discussion about water temperature, but I get a "not found" when I go there. This is my major concern. Even though I live in SoCal, it's often...

    I want to convert a spare 40 gallon breeder tank I have into a vivarium. I've done a lot of research and am leaning towards the build suggested on BlackJungle.com . But I have a few questions I haven't found quite the right answers for. If I use a substrate divider to help recycle moisture do I...
  11. Beginner Discussion
    Please help... Over the last couple of days I can't get the tank temperature to go any lower than 79 degrees it even hit 110 or so my thermometer says. Could that even be possible??? or is my thermometer broken? It's a brand new exoterra hygro/thermo. If this is actually possible how do I...
