    The Albino tadpole is now almost a froglet!, and should be on land within the next week. Again ive included a picture of one of its siblings for comparison.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Thought I would provide an update on the Albino tadpole. Before I do and in keeping with the theme of the thread, ive experienced another strange occurrence. An Alanis tadpole with one spindly back leg. I'm sure many people have experienced this themselves in the front legs, including myself before the introduction of Repashy Calcium plus but never before in the rear legs.

    Well done. They are great looking frogs. You don't see enough of these about IMO.

    Well done. Have plenty of food ready for when they morph as they are voracious feeders. regards Gordon

    One of the four tads now has front and back legs, the other three look to to have fronts popping soon. Two more have been transported into the gulley and another 8 eggs are developing nicely.

    Thought i'd update it for posterity if nothing else. Sorry for the lack of updates, i'm in the process of moving house so the tank has been put on the back-burner. A few things : - I've purchased 2 x Kessil A360 Tuna Sun LEDs with the spectral controller for custom photo periods, sunrise and sunset etc (ex display for less than £400 - bargain, kinda!) - unsure how to integrate these with T5 or whether to use these for the warmer months and the T5s for the cooler months - thoughts? - I need to replace the polycarbonate top with glass and construct some type of vent. - I need to build a new stand, this crappy ply stand is falling apart already. So i'm planning on buliding a wooden stand to accommodate 2 of these 24*18*24 Exo Terras. Will update when there's something meaningful to add.
