    I bought all the misting system separate, pump is ENT, the nozzles all come from Ben's jungle and all the timers and tube from Dart frog. I had my Blue Jeans Pumilio in there for a while but they were too shy so I managed to get a pair of red head Histrionica in It was good to see you Ale hope the Banded Imitators all settle for you Cheers Ben.

  9. R. Summersi Or Banded Imi's?

    Hi, I keep the Banded Imitator Sauce (1.2) they are stunning frogs and a perfect mimic, Little bigger than my other imitators and have a slightly deeper call. They are quite bold once settled and mine have started to lay some quite big clutches of five too seven white eggs, Tadpoles seem a little more sensitive to raise than others but I have a dozen or so growing on well. I think the Summersi like it a bit drier and take a lot longer to reach maturity and are more of a challenge to breed/raise. Either way they are both stunning and you should have some! Ben.

    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.

    Not the best pic but we are getting there, Now ordering drain and mist system. Going for the comfort line system from Bens Jungle along with a big plant order. Light unit is in the post, gone with an aquarium T5 unit and will change one of the bulbs for an Arcadia 6% uv bulb. Will post update pic's soon. (Thank's for the help with image posting, I think I have it figured out.) Ben.
