  1. Parts & Construction
    Building a 2x2x2 cube viv. Need ideas and pictures to build. I just need to fill my mind with a few more concepts before i start. Wanting to include a small water stream if possible. And yes i know the stigma around it i just need to be 100%. Also going to use sump to help with filtration and...
  2. Beginner Discussion
    Hey! I have been reading everything I can find for a week and unlikely to stop any time soon, but there's been a few topics I haven't seen a consensus or enough detail on, so figured I'd ask some questions. (also, a lot of what I've been reading is 10+ years old.... I'm sure the knowledge has...
  3. Parts & Construction
    First time builder here for dart frogs (though fairly experienced in building for other reptiles, amphibians, and fresh water aquariums). I'm wondering how people add in a water portion into their vivarium by making their false bottom floor level drop below the false bottom/water reservoir...

    Today I'd like to share with you my (nota bene) pet project - a biotope vivarium inspired by the Loreto region in Peru. All non-moss, non-algae plants, and vertebrate inhabitants, were demonstrated within the borders of the region. Sadly, it's not possible to realistically recreate a piece of...
  5. Beginner Discussion
    Hi, I have been reading through quite a few build threads to figure out the best way to construct the waterfall for my 20H paludarium I am making. Unfortunately, I haven't found one that goes into detail on how to construct the river/waterfall section directed back into the pond. Tank will...
  6. New Members Introductions
    Hi all, I am a new member and I am building my first vivarium. I will construct this vivarium using a 36x18x18 Exoterra terrarium. I am presently debating which poison dart frog morph the vivarium will house. I have many questions, but I really want to know if water circulation is better for a...

    Hello everyone! Well, I am trying to get back into the hobby! I am not sure how this build will turn out. I bought a Zoo Med 18 x 18 X 24. A Very nice piece of Ghost Wood from Mike Rizzo. Cork Bark Background. Great stuff pond and stone foam. Faux rocks from Scott Allen! where the water...
  8. General Discussion
    This is my first post in a long time. I had to start a new account as I don't remember what my last one was. Haha. So I have a good deal of experience with breeding darts (mainly auratus) and mantellas (betsileo). I had to sell my buddies and their enclosures a few years back when I was...

  10. Parts & Construction
    Hi, I'm planning out my first vivarium build and I'd like to put in a waterfall on the back wall. The tank will be 24x18x24 and have a Great Stuff/wood background using mostly cork flats, and a piece or two of Malaysian driftwood for the waterfall. My main question is, how do I go about making...
  11. Parts & Construction
    So I'm planning on building a vivarium for my group of 4 marbled newts. Since they are still young and newts do enjoy a lot of time on land i figured a divided 36"18"18" exo terra would be perfect. The tank will just be mostly moss, ferns, and cork bark branches. Excited to use my new Finnex...
  12. Beginner Discussion
    Hello all, I am new to the forum and don't currently own any darts. I have been researching though and would like to know opinions on which species would be good for a newbie. I have a 20 long viv I recently planted, nothing living in it right now, and I thought I might like to keep a couple...
  13. Parts & Construction
    I'm currently building by background out of extruded polystyrene (insulation board). I plan on painting it, either with acrylics mixed with waterproof masonry paint, or regular acrylic paint and using a spray-on silicone to make it water resistant. The spray-on silicone is the stuff I use to...
  14. Member's Frogs & Vivariums
    So, after months of hair pulling trying to get a design I liked, I finally just pulled the trigger and did my first viv. I have fire belly toads right now that this was designed for but maybe I can make a few changes, i.e. significantly lessen the water feature, for some darts. anyway...
  15. Parts & Construction
    I am new to building vivariums and have a couple questions. I'm using egg crate to create my false bottom and using filter medium density filter foam 3" thick under the egg crate. My question is what's the best way to use a external filter, I was looking towards some of the zoo med...
  16. Beginner Discussion
    If humidity is maintained by misting, should a vivarium still have a water feature (pond, waterfall, drip wall...)? What should one keep in mind when building a water feature? WhAt should one avoid with water features?
  17. Parts & Construction
    Hey guys I have a question about moving water about 3ft from the bottom of a 40g breeder (turned vertical) to the top of it. My last two attempts at waterfalls have failed haha. So at this point on my last try I am willing to go the extra mile if needed. Basically my question is I need a pump...
  18. Parts & Construction
    I am so pleased to have found this board, and look forward to any advice you may give. I have a 75 gal bowfront tank which I would like to transform into a terrarium with a water feature in which I can keep fish. I have done some research, and would prefer a slope into the water area ( without...
  19. Tree frogs
    I am planning a new tank for two baby whites tree frogs. I have had these frogs many times in the past but never in a proper vivarium. I have several concerns listed below: 1. Whites are dirty and very susceptible to red leg, to help combat this they should be provided with a water bowl that...

    Hey everyone, So after long planning and discussion on my other thread http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/parts-construction/72213-20-long-rock-waterfall-construction-journal.html I made a lot of mistakes on that thread with the past two tanks and that thread for me is getting very confusing...
