I was looks in my dad's fridge and noticed he had a grocery bag full of film and I asked if I could have the film containers and my step mum said yes :)

so now I'm curious what do I use to attach the the suction cup to the container and also where would be the best places to put them...
and will 6 be enough?
what color...or angle?
these will be for a pair of imitators or some other thumbnail species.
I have looked at some threads but none really mention imitators...not even Kyles sticky thread about the placement, color, and water levels of containers




here is a pic of my tank for those who haven't seen it...where would be the best places to put them?

The care sheet for the imitators says at a 45 degree angle so I would do that and then experiment where you put the film canisters. Some on the ground and some on the glass in clusters. 6 will definelty be enough for a pair. As for how much, just a small puddle so that the eggs can be slightly covered.
Do I need to check it for an excess water from misting?

Forgot to mention, they may choose to lay eggs in some of the bromiliads, or other plants. If the broms don't hold good water, it would be a good idea to add a few canisters to hold water, and serve as tadpole deposition sites. Even when you provide a lot of egg laying sites, the frogs can find a way to hide a few clutches from time to time.
thanks...I have already made them and have the details on my construstion journal... http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/pa...rt-semi-n00b-viv-pic-heavy-15.html#post656948
