    No worries Rob, I'll save two for you.
  3. Phyllobates Bicolor

    Fab, could I reserve two please? I’m only in Devon, so can pop down for them when they’re ready to go. Will be in touch again in October to check in. Cheers, Rob

    My pums got over 29 this year. As long as the mister was working they seemed happy with it. Sure other species will be less keen at that level, but the Blue Jeans and Cachero seemed fine.
  6. Phyllobates Bicolor

    Yes, some should hopefully be ready to go in November. They are great frogs for sure, I've really been captivated since first seeing them too.
  7. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Very cool idea. I always enjoy seeing how someone else does things.
  8. Phyllobates Bicolor

    Always though bicolor were amazing since seeing them at London zoo about five years ago. Will you be selling any offspring in the near future?
  9. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Cheers John.if anyone’s interested here’s my rack. Not too busy now seemed to ha e stopped breeding. Hot weather? Got these 25 mm tubes at 45 degrees in rack the angle helps keep rack closer,can access back ones better and gives a bit more surface area.they foul relatively quickly so got to clean often but looking at 70 odd tads in a square foot of wall space.i know vents are super hardy so may not work for all thumbs
  10. 3. Is it the magic number?

    I follow the general rule of at least 3 months for larger frogs (Tincs, Auratus etc). 4/5 months for thumbnails, and 6 months for Pumilio. Obviously if you have some that have developed at a faster rate than the others then I'm happy to let them go earlier.

    Many thanks - I plan to further modify it tomorrow to add ventilation at the back, with the logic being : - The tank seems to struggle losing heat, like tonight for example it's still sitting at 24C and this worries me as i'm picking up my Pumilio within the next week. - I beleive this is because the ventilation is only located at the front, thus the heat soaked in at the rear of the tank just sits there with no convection able to happen due to lack of ventilation - Also hoping that internal ventilation will help? Thanks for reading

    Mine are French Guyana mate Can’t say I can really tell the difference

    Cute lil' chap.
  14. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Yep, those are the ones. Looking for a few more to be honest.

    They're smashing through the dusted Hydei already.

    What do you have borja ridge?
  17. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Thanks that’s what I was hoping to hear.i think people have different experiences with mysties from the little I’ve heard once they start breeding you can’t stop them you have to watch them temp and diet wise.ithink I read on here that they are generally not sold till knocking 6 months? What about leucs 3 monthsish for them?

    Looking good. Never trusted myself to drill glass to honest, so always impressed when I see it done.
  19. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Hello John. Vents are pretty fast matureing frogs if mine are any thing to go by. I'd say go by size and tempament as much as age with them. Moving youngsters is always a problem. I just lost two Mysties who never seemed to settle, the other two are plumping up well and seem to be fine.
  20. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Hello members. I’m getting a small accumulation of baby vents 10 in a small grow out tub some more to come.my question is do they need 3 months plus before shifting them on? I’m asking because my little leucs seems skittish and nervy but the vents seem chilled out and robust sit about when I open the tub feeding ok. Is there a standard age? I just wonder how bothered they would be in someone’s viv loaded with springs rather than keeping them in a tub?in no rush they just look hardy. What you reckon. Cheers john

    Hi @madlan - it's doing really well, i'll try and grab some photos for you when I get chance. So progress is slow, and the breeder holding my pumilio on a deposit for the last 5 weeks is getting understandably frustrated. However before I can finally add the frogs, I needed to replace the polycarbonate lid due to concerns about BPA and its connection to endocrine disruptors. So I decided to replace with glass - I went for 6mm Pilkington Optiwhite (low iron) - which cost me £34 for a straight cut sheet. 20180803_180825 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr 20180803_180757 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr Template mocked up - ventilation provided by 5 x 50mm holes, misting provided by 5 16mm misting holes, the last 16mm hole (rear left) is for a misting nozzle to attach a 50mm fan too for internal circulation. 20180810_174621 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr 50mm and 16mm tile drills purchased along with plumbers putty, this is the end result : glass top by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr Glass top 2 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr I'm not happy with the heat loss, so will be drilling a further 2 - 3 50mm holes at the rear of the tank also.
  22. Peperomia albovittata

    the pilea deressa will spread quite rapidly i found cuttings are enough to get it started don't need to plant the pot. Albovittata will also do well just be careful to remove and commercial soil from the plant.

    Little one is coming along a treat.

    It's great to see the albino next to the sibling, that is going to be a very cool looking frog. Please keep us updated.
  26. Stranger things!

    Yes they are banded Sauce by the current descriptions. Intermedius was the old name for Banded and Netted.
  27. Stranger things!

    Albino vanzolini ooooooooohhh!
  28. Stranger things!

    So is it not a banded then? I thought intermedius was variabilis type. Thought banded was sauce?
