  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. They are pretty straight forward. Keep them warm, feed them fish flake, and provide them with some cotton wool to lay on. It will take some patience to begin with as they can be slow to reproduce at first.
  4. You could also try Firebrats/Silverfish. I don't think they have been mentioned?, but great for a bit of variety.

    I have been using one of these filters for years to purify my tap water. Ive never had any problems. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-Stage-HMA-Water-Purifier-Koi-Ponds-Dechlorinator-Filter-System/122094639859?hash=item1c6d685af3:m:mL2QepJbv_hRM4LoOqa5Gjg

    Well I can tell you that's not true. Ive kept a few groups over the years and don't think ive ever found eggs in the leaf litter. They always used to lay in film cansiters for me.
  9. Peat plates for substrate?

    I used to use them years ago and they worked pretty well. I used to wrap the plants roots in moss and then pin the plant in position using a cocktail stick. Give the plant a good spray with water after.

  11. Great pictures Nick, so nice to see them in their natural habitat.
  12. Ghost Town

    I hadn't noticed the Rainforest vivs link was no longer working It does look like Dendroworld.co.uk is no more which is a great shame as there was a wealth of information on there spanning a couple of decades. . Sadly the owner who originally set up the site lost interest in Dart frogs and it just went downhill from there. I have been keeping Dart frogs for over 10 years now, and it just seems to be very much a revolving door of a hobby. I could probably count on my one hand the people who are still around today when I first started. I'm sure there are many different reasons why people stop keeping. It can be quite high maintenance at times, depending on how much you keep, not to mention the cost, sometimes life just gets in the way and you have to prioritise whatever you think is the most important.
