Hi all,
About ready to get 3 Varadero imitators and want to make sure Im not missing anything.

Habitat -is all set, I have a Terra Biopod with a bunch of plants, including a big brom, ghost wood, and a hideout. Misting lighting etc is part of the tank. A few Jugs of distilled water

Microfauna- I seeded the tank with springtails, but it looks like i have some mites living in there as well. I have a springtail culture going for future seeding

Isopods- Im planning on throwing in about 20 and not keeeping a culture

Fruitflies- 2 cultures going sitting in a bin on DE. I aslo got the dart supplement pack form Josh's frogs.

Random other- Spray bottle, Extra leaf litter.

Any little details Im missing? Cleaning supplies?

The only cleaning supplies I use are scissors to trim plants and paper towels to clean inside glass. Good luck!

FF media & new culture containers? I assume you have them

I had a look at the supplement bundle. The herpivite doesn't carry the vit A your frogs can use (last I read) so don't trust it. It irks me they sell that bundle. All you need is 1 or 2 items off the list. The repashy calcium + is all you really need, but vit a is good to. Vit A only once a month unless they are deficient. There's plenty of threads on here about it.

Second the extra cups and media for FF cultures. They disappear quick and nothing is worse than not having a culture producing some feeding time.

Not sure if you're plan is breeding but picking up some film canisters for egg/tad deposits might not be a bad idea maybe next order

Thanks everyone! I'll definitely do some more reading on supplements.
How can I tell if my frogs are Vit A deficient?
I got a bunch of extra FF cups and Im thinking of having 3 cultures going just for the timing of how long they take to boom.
