Well my 18" exo cube is growing in nicely.

The ivy is going nuts and will probably need pruning soon.
My Cryptanthus is really doing well and showing nice color.
The strawbery begonia is growing very fast too and the color is great!

Still waiting for the moss to grow in a little more. Might just pull some from my other tank.
So maybe later this week Ill have some PDF's in here.


Newly setup.


Now.

well its been in there for about a week so ill see. I paid $5 for it so its alot cheaper than ones made for our hobby. Maybe ill take it out every now and then to dry out.


I picked up some small hydei cultures today from Petco. Surprisingly they have alot of flies and larva in them. So I picked up all the supplies to start my first cultures. So far so good. Atleast I was able to find some FF localy so I dont have to worry about what to feed the frogs once I get them.

Yeah I looked at them really good and didnt see any mites.

I might do a water change soon, since the water is kinda brown. Or I might just do a few water tests.

Looks nice! I might suggest moving the humidity guage close to the top (I use same 1's ). Atleast dont give it a direct spray.

yeah I took the gauge out for the night. Humidity and temp doesnt vary much anyways.

I have noticed a few fungus gnats in the tank. Hopefully they wont take over the viv.

doing a water change will not make a difference, the water in the tank will just turn brown again a few days later, its from the coco fiber, wood or leaves in the tank. it lets off tantic (i think thats how its spelled) acids, tantic acid is not harmfull, so there really isnt a need for trying to get the water clear again.

I put a small carbon filter under the waterfall for about a day. seems to have cleared up the water a little and got rid of some of the odor.

I also planted a few more Cryptanthus pups. I really need to order some Fireballs soon or something without spikes on its leaves lol. The crypts can be kinda sharp on their edges.

Also my fruit flies are starting to mate. I still might pick up some cultures from Chris tomorrow.

Im excited! : )

Well I picked up a pair of Suriname Cobalts tonight from Umbrasprite. I believe I got a male and a female. Both are ~6 months old he said. I just put them in their new home. But they seem reluctant to come out of the plastic container I brought them home in.

I also picked up some supplements from him.

He was very nice to talk with, and offered lots of information. I would definately recomend him to anyone.

Ill start a new thread with pics in a few days.
