I am on a waiting list for some castaneoticus and was wondering about other peoples viv desins for this species.
Bgreen said:I have a few of the nut pods and they held water for a few months and now they drain rather quickly. They still look great, but I wouldn't want the frogs to use them as a tadpole site
I was going to do this, but so far all of the brazil nut husks I have used don't continue to hold water (like Ben said). They still look great, but aren't doing what I would like them to. I heard the guys at Black Jungle tell someone to coat the inside with black silicone. I would think this would work, but wouldn't look as nice. I was thinking of using some sort of wood sealer as well... anyone try it yet? Also, I was wondering if anyone knew of a source for the whole husk instead of halves? From the few pictures I have seen of the husks on the forest floor they were almost a whole husk, with a hole punched out of them. I think this would be a more secure deposition site and it may even keep in more humidity/hold more water. So, does anyone know where to get whole brazilian nuts (not husked)? I was hoping to make a little pile of these in a tank for some castaneoticus and see if they used them or not... thanks for ruining my little experiment Justin lol.andersonii85wrote:
Here's a question. For those of you who are keeping this species- do you actually have overturned brazil nut husks inside the terraria?
