    Can the regular GE silicon be cured in a humid environment? Will a humid environment do any negative things to the cure? If the answer is yes, I could lower the humidity but it would be easier for me to just apply the silicon in the tank as it is. I would take the animal in the tank out for 48...

    Hello, Chiquita Linda was one of the small neorgelias that I was planning on getting for my tank. In the pictures, it looks mostly green. However, I have seen a few pictures of them with some nice pinks and oranges. When good lighting is provided, what can these guys look like? If anyone has any...

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...

    Hello, I was looking at putting some broms in my display tank to color it up and make it look nicer. It is my first build, so it is a pretty small tank so I can get a feel of how to make it. It measures 20x10x12, and I was wondering how many small broms I could place in it. I was thinking 2, and...

    I’m in the process of building my newest vivarium. My interest in vivariums comes from aquascaping, so I want to intentionally position the hardscape to be compositionally pleasing and bring attention to the plants and (eventually) frogs. My idea is to position these two wood pieces to be...

    Hello, I have two tincs in a 29 gallon vivarium. I had originally built my background on a piece of foam board and then added it to the tank.

    While we're all home, we're housing the Frog vivarium that's usually at my child's school. Prior to their coming here, one of the frogs (a Yellow Banded dart frog) passed away. We're looking to get another to go with the Santa Isabel who is still alive and doing well, but am wondering if that'd...
