  1. Stranger things!

    I think if anyone had took it that way you would have already heard about it
  2. Mistking pump is on the way out.

    I ordered one of these yesterday: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Reverse-Osmosis-100-GPD-Booster-Pump-Marine-Fish-Tank-Aquarium-RO-Water-2016-New/291647664491?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=590681423601&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 I already have one that I bought a couple of years ago and that still going strong. Only trouble is I think Mistking have different size fittings to European misting equipment? so you may need some sort of Imperial to Metric connecter to join it to your existing kit.
  3. Stranger things!

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

    Cheers Nick. Yes John I'm pretty impressed with him myself. Maybe that's what I should name him 'Little Bosta'
  5. Stranger things!

    Thanks Gordon.
  6. Stranger things!

    UPDATE: The little one appears to be coming along nicely.....
  7. 3. Is it the magic number?

    Very cool idea. I always enjoy seeing how someone else does things.
  8. 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.
  9. Stranger things!

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

    I'd like to think it was a world first, but I honestly don't know. As we know there is a line of Albino Vents, I have also seen an Albino Vanzolinni, I think I vaguely remember an Albino Reticulata, but Ive personally never seen anyone report an Albino Intermedius.

    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.
  12. Stranger things!

    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.
  13. Phyllobates Bicolor

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

    Well not counting my chickens because it still has to make it out of the water, and then grow on, but I have no plans at the moment other than to keep it. I like the idea of having something that no one else has, and I'm looking forward to watching how it develops and seeing what it finally turns out like.
  15. Stranger things!

    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.
