What is great about it, is that is sticks to many of the core principles that Tijl often preaches too!...ie. it is possible to have a great looking tank, without sacrificing its suitability for the frogs.

Glad you notice!

Exactly, the core principles always have to be correct. I also try to keep my tanks quite simple which in it's turn makes them bugdet friendly. The bromeliads for example are probably the cheapest you can find.. the only 'expensive' thing is this tank is the margavia, which I got as cutting from a friend and the new lights.. But these are not neccesary for the frogs by any means.

I feel the tank could look a bit better again if I invested some more ✂ time in it 🤣

I just read the hole thread and really enjoyed it the tank looks great and the prize is very well deserved.

Its a great inspiration.

I’m going to take advantage to ask a few questions:
-How did you manage to get the macgravia sintenissi to grow “so quick” and what would you say would be the best place for a macgravia in a tank.

-How much ventilation do you have in the tank?

-What are the best times of broms for pumilio and Ranitomeya to reproduce, big leafs or small leafs, with or without “thorns”, does color do anything.


Thanks and great tank.

Marcgravia love high humidity and light, but not to be soaked.

This tank only has passive ventilation. One strip in the bottom front, 2 on the top of the tank.

Pumilio and Ranitomeya like to 'reproduce' on a smooth surface. Leaves in the leaflitter or annything plastic is prefered by most dart frogs.

Bromeliads with deep axils are prefered for tadpole deposition if that is your question. Color, spikes,.. does not mather.

You are mistakes if you think all Ranitomeya look after their tadpoles. Only a handull of Ranitomeya morphs are facultative egg feeders.
