It amuses me every time you call a soil sexy :lol: But then again, who am I to talk? I was the one taking the soil pics in the southwest when you were the one driving the car :roll: Yeah I'm just a little bit nuts too... and omg I want a cutting of that Maranta! I've been looking for the green form of the red prayer plant since I saw it at ABG!!
So... on to the questions. For the lorenzo tank, why the perlite? (This is often spouted to be a froggy no-no, so explain to all who seek your dirty guideness!). Second (long winded) question... in your first tank you mentioned (on DB or FrogNet I don't remember) about how when transporting your tank back from IAD, some water sloshed, and created these pockets in the soil that have become soil critter refugiums
. Did you try and create anything like this in the lorenzo tank? Is it worth trying to replicate? I was somewhat tempted to add a layer of EpiWeb to the substrate for this reason, but eventually it would probably get closed off from the surface so I dunno.
I now live on a sand bar, so I need to figure out what to do about the soils.
What is recipe number 2? So mean to tease the DBers like that
