  4. Usa Vs. Europe

    to be honest I don't really see this..... I have always found people all over the globe willing to help me in my phib questions the USA are miles ahead of where our hobby is and I honestly believe we have loads to learn from them, they often get a lot of the new / rare frogs 1st so always seem to have hands on experience on things when we are starting out with said frogs. as always everyone is an individual and im sure some people from UK and USA don't get on we all cant like each other lol I think the only time there is a huge disagreement is when it comes to Mysties, this been a hot topic in any US forum as no mysties have been legally imported, im sure some in the UK have the same beliefs as the people in the US about this topic but I think most in the UK accept we have them all in all I find the people from other countries very helpful
  5. Future Of The Hobby

    I would like to see more kids get involved in the hobby as this is where the future is, I have offered to take some frogletts and tads into my youngest kids school as he is always telling his mates about the frogs he has at home but they did not take me up on my offer :-( I don't think food is a stumbling block as im sure many would prefer to try culture their own as its cheaper I found it very annoying when I was breeding geckos to have to go to a store to buy live food (I could be wrong). unfortunately we are in a world where people put cash 1st and if they cant make money they wont do it!!!! look at snakes for a prime example. this is a hobby not a business I don't think there is enough done to spread the word in many parts of the UK, some people are doing a fantastic job and making a good impact by organising and running shows but I still think more can be done in other regions. (please this is not taking anything away from the people who do a lot) too many people are giving up within a year which is not great and I still see more people leaving the hobby then joining. I don't know what we can do to get more people in the hobby but I sure think its needed

  9. Little Fant Froglet

    You need to be careful keeping in groups I got 5 males last year and saw some aggression it's hard to see but one started to loose a little weight I have also read a female heavy trio can stress the male so just keep a good eye on weight with fants the can drop very quick and as their so bleeding quick they have a high motabalism so can go down hill rapid. Not saying it can't be done I know Another breeder who keeps in a group with no ill effects
  10. PVA Backgrounds

  11. PVA Backgrounds

    Just a quick one, I have done this on a viv and left it a full week after doing all sides to dry so I was 100% it was dry and I have used this exact stuff nick has said above my issue question is I have planted and set up the mister and where its sprayed the most its gone from see through (side of viv looking in) to white again is this ok? has anyone else seen this?
