I offer help to anyone interested. Posts like this are designed to start flame wars. I have yet to receive a PM from the OP. When individuals are honestly looking for advise on setting up a mixed enlosure they typically contact me within a few hours. These threads are typically started to put down mixing but they actually increase the amount of people contacting me for advise and suggestions.
You must not read any of the debates. I think it is great that hobbiest want to maintain pure lines. I think there is plenty of room in this hobby for both. I have never tried to pursuade any of the "non mixers" to do anything differently with ther frogs. So who exactly am I trying to make conform to "my beliefs"? I give out advise to those that ask based on my experience. If they choose to mix great if not then no skin off my nose. I just do not think that false statements are acceptable to justify an opinion.
Absolutely, You are spot on about the hybrid issues. I noticed though my take on packing frogs into small vivs went unanswered by you again. Whats this question #how many thousand.......You talk and teach regularly on cramming tinc pairs into tens and yet you go after another person involved in a heated issue? Your as big a hypocrite as any of us.
Im really surprised you didnt tell the OP to message you about how many frogs really can fit into a small viv. You seem to be the poster boy of that war....
Yeah I know I just fanned the flames too. But Im special......
Sorry man, Rich, myself and others havent met for our quarterly ''What's wrong with Richard Lynch'' meeting. If you remember this issue wasnt about anyone but you and I. I asked you those questions repeatedly and you ran from them. I wont waste time, well too much time retrying. Still it wouldnt hurt to know why your packing your adult tincs into ten gallons with no will to go bigger. Seems like you settled for much less than the frogs deserve. You claim to be a guide for new hobbyists yet you lead with one of the worst examples.
I will hold back on this as I wasnt expecting to get into it. Just remember you brought up other people I kept it between you and I.
How does this help the thread? It is clear that both you and Poison Beauties have an axe to grind.. but is this really the thread to grind that axe?
If anyone has a better idea on how 10 gallons should be managed for tinc breeding Im all ears, My idea on it is they should not be used. Its simple, you can not tell me that a larger viv say 20-55 gallons is not easier to maintain. There will be aggression/ territorial issues, stagnant water and drainage issues, ventilation issues as well as may fewer options for plants and other viv decor. You can not do any better with a ten gallon than a larger viv. Again if it cost you a couple hundred bucks for the frogs and you cant afford a bigger viv maybe this hobby isnt for you as its a hobby that costs with the needed diet and other supplies involved. The viv is just about the cheapest part of this hobby especially when there are $1 per gallon sales at petco.
Richard thunderdome or not keep it up and I wil hurt your feelings on this. Do I need to pull up the videos from recent wars? You just said its your business what you do with your frogs and vivs yes but when your using them as examples and you value yourself as a teacher to new hobbyists and outsiders who form opinions on this hobby easily expect counter points on the subject. You can not tell me you have better outcomes with you frogs in tens than you would larger vivs. You seem to be based more as a business than a hobbyist as far as I can tell by your practices. Im very surprised your not keeping tinc pairs in 190oz containers so you can stack them in and get more of them. Good luck with it Im out.,.
