    This is my single big viv built onto and around my freezer. Mostly recycled glass and various poly boards glued to my wall recirculated water section drip wall on left out of view little stream left empties into water/filter on right. I had the inspired idea to wrap hygrolon then hessian around drip“vine” so Itwould be festooned with climbers moss ferns and the like. This Immediately failed and rotted like a pear and grew liver like fungus. Other than that it’s gone ok ish. There is enough light in the top to start a ganja farm but still not too satisfied with growth/colours tbh. Got 6 vents 5 leucs and 3 Santa Isabel all getting on and breeding with exception of Isabel who are all boys( any girls out there). How does everyone get such lush green/purple growth? Anyone else got large setups? Does anyone let non oophaga species get on with it entirely in the tank? That’s the plan with the Isabel’s. I was obsessed with the idea of this build but now I can only see limitations. Now craving little tidy boxes with pairs in them. Comments/critique welcome John

    I went the LED route too, using LED tape (High brightness stuff, not the cheapo under kitchen cabinet stuff). This allowed me to control the lighting and produce decent day\night cycles plus silly stuff like this:

    Ive always wanted an Albino frog/tadpole, don't ask me why, but I just did. In all the years ive been keeping/breeding I would have thought I would have chanced upon one but never did..until now!. Albino banded Imitator. Also a picture of a normal banded tad for comparison. and just when I thought it couldnt get any stranger/weirder!? A two-headed tadpole. No idea which species this was as I don't record the species on their rearing tubs. Sadly this guy didn't last more than a couple of days, but thats probably for the best.

    mostly planted with stuff I’ve taken from other vivs. Couple of climbers I half inched from Stratford butterfly farm moth orchid donated by old customer dwarf mondo grass seems tough not sure how it will work long term. Seeded lawn with chopped Xmas moss need to add hut and forest “pot pourii”

    Hi, Thought I'd share a photo of my two vivs, up top is a pair of Excidobates mysteriosus, and the lower contains the trio of Phyllobates bicolor. Set up both in November after the frogs had spent time in temporary accommodation after vivs broken during a house move. No plans to keep any more species at the moment, it's about all I can manage with a full time job and two children, however I do have a retirement plan.

    Bicolors are great frogs and more lively then terribilis.They can be a nicer colour in many cases also. regards Gordon

    rock beach done hygrolon patch between bigger rocks dips into trough at front will grow aquatic moss lawn but rock will remain dry most of time avoiding foot rot. Update when lights in. Using 2x24 watt 7000 k suspended ceiling lights got them on my two 40 cubes above seem to work great and cheap as chips

    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

    Always been a fan of the leaf litter, and let the moss choose it's own growing points. Maybe I've just had lost too many battles with trying to get moss to work well at floor level.

    Growing like little weeds, not surprised though, they're like bottomless pits.

    I used to have Ukarii that used to throw out black specimens. It was interesting, but not exactly what i'd call a stunner.

    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?

    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.

    I thought I had three males... but after lots of calling and jumping about over the last few days I found a clutch of 9 eggs in the coco hut this evening.

    So my attempt at ventilation : 20180420_153748 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr But the end result.... 20180420_153756 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr 20180420_153918 by DEAF N1NJA, on Flickr I can only think of a few reasons that i'm struggling with something seemingly so simple : - The mesh covering the vents is too fine and allowing minimal air through. - 'New glass' - i've seen that the glass tends to 'clear' after a while when it builds up a bacterial surface (though still not truly clear) - No internal circulation

    Plants and misting nozzles arrived so they have been installed and the first planting done. Need to add a bit more décor, Liana vines, pods and leaf litter. The light unit arrived and has been installed, Although waiting on arcadia T5 tube to replace the blue tube in the unit. Once the misting system is finished will leave to grow in and think about what to put in there! Cheers, Ben.
