First I would like to thank everyone who has supported DFD over the years. So many kind words and loyal customers. It has been great fun meeting and supporting your hobbies over the years. I am not leaving the frog world but have been given a career opportunity that is too good to pass up and will require more time than I have currently with caring for the frogs.

All frogs have been sold.

I have quite a bit of inventory and supplies that I need to move. I am looking for someone to make a bulk purchase of everything and do not have the time to sell things off piecemeal. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to start a business or for one of our current sponsors to obtain stock and materials for a great low price.

As I mentioned I prefer to sell all together but I do have a few items I will sells separately if need be (taking offers). Some of the items are used and need a good cleaning but are otherwise in perfect shape. Those items are:

1. Fully planted 125 gallon vivarium with drips walls and waterfall/pond. This has been up and running for over 3 years and is filled with all types of plants including mosses, orchids, broms and others. Most of the plants in the front are still potted and can be moved/removed if preferred. In the time I have had the tank running it has never required any maintenance other that refilling with water. One of the plastic braces on the top was cracked during a move but has been supporting the weight of the lighting easily with a brace. Comes with wood stand and lights. PICK UP ONLY...VERY HEAVY! Tank alone is worth over $400 without the stand.
There is also a short movie here: Photo's/Inventory Selloff/MOV09762.MPG

2. Unique 36x24x36 Terrarium
This is a great tank I picked up years ago. I have used it for keeping Emerald Tree Boas, Giant Monkey Tree frogs, Giant Leaf-tail Geckos, as well as huge dartfrog setups. It has a removable screen top and full sized swinging side door with latches for locks. It is water tight and can support ponds or false bottoms and would be a great palludarium. Comes with wooden stand. Purchased for $400.

3. 55 gallon aquarium with stand and mesh screen lid

4. GrowLab 120L Indoor Grow Room
This thing rocks! I bought this to maintain live mosses, broms, orchids and other plants I carried for sale. It is a fully vented grow room with full size water catch, vents, fully opening back door as well as front doors with windows. The interior is fully reflective. Also available is #5 which I currently use for lighting. You can get more information on the item here:

5. Hydrofarm T5 4ft 6 tube commercial fixture with 6400k fluorescent bulbs
This thing again rocks! Will have everything in the grow room green and blooming. Also great for growing light intensive plants (orchids, broms, mosses) in large, deep tanks such as the one's I have listed above.
Hydrofarm - Hydrofarm FLP46 T5 4Ft/6-Tube Designer System w/ Bulbs

6. Current NOVA Extreme 4 x T5HO Lighting Fixture/bulbs with Moon Lights
These are again great for high light need plants as well as marine tanks with corals needing high light. Nova Extreme 4XT5HO | Current-USA

7. Current 20" 2 lamp 40W 24 Hour Lighting System/bulb with Moon Lights
These are again great for high light need plants as well as marine tanks with corals needing high light. 20 inch 2x40 Watt Current USA PowerCompact Orbit Fixture

8. 11 Storage Racks (3 x 18" deep, 2 x 24" deep, 2 x Fruit Fly Culture racks with glass culture prep table, 2 x 36" Bakers Racks, 2 x 48" long)

In addition there as many other items not listed that will go with the purchase associated with running a dartfrog related business such as packing tape, office supplies, labels, plastic tubs, plastic sheeting, misc hardware items, etc.

Again I would like to state that my preference is a single bulk sale. If I need to break things up I will not be able to provide the huge discount I am offering for a single sale and costs will be higher accordingly. All in all I paid over $4000 for these items. The grow room, lighting and tanks alone put me over $2000. I am looking for a $2000 takes all if you can pick up yourself. I will load and drive within 4 hours from DC for an additional $500.


Thanks for everyone's interest and looking forward to hooking someone up with a good start or some cheap inventory for their ventures!

Both offers for a full sale fell through. I will be breaking things up from here. I am giving preference to those who can PICK UP at my location in Bethesda, MD.

Pricing will be based on order size.
