  1. when on holiday

    Hi I use film canisters half full with banana and fill with flies...put lid on and put a small hole in the side of the canister near the top...then stand the canister upriight in the viv...the flies will slowly disperse from the canister allowing the frogs to eat them. I only do this if away for more than a week...any less than that and the frogs seem to manage okay as the vivs are seeded with springs and woodlice already. regards Gordon
  2. merry christmas

    Merry Xmas all.
  3. running a fogger

    Personally i would not bother with one...they have to be set up properly to work effectively and have to be very safe for the frogs. I tried one a few years ago and it was unreliable and a waste of money in my opinion. regards Gordon
  4. Lunch dad?

    Nice pic...site seems fine. regards Gordon
  5. Happy Birthday Nick

    Sorry Nick...just seen this...Happy Birthday mate. regards Gordon
  6. Terribilis build

    They do like a large viv and sometimes they are so keen to catch food they will jump into viv walls and glass to catch prey...which can result in slight marks on the noses lol.
  7. Terribilis build

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

    Very nice viv.
  9. Terribilis build

    Remember they are heavy ground dwelling frogs and can trample fragile plants.

    Viv is looking good. When you get your terribs, put them in as a group and leave them together in the viv. They dont seem to like being moved from viv to viv and group to group once they are settled in and are fully grown...i bred hundreds of yellow terribs a few year back as a group of 2.2 in a similar sized viv. They loved it and wouldnt stop breeding, laying 15 to 20 eggs every few weeks for over 3 years...in the end i was giving groups of youngsters away because i had flooded the market. The only way i could stop them breeding was to split them into two groups of 1.1...they didnt like that and never bred again. They are great frogsand i hope you enjoy them. In my opinion the yellows are the healthiest and fittest, followed by the orange and then the mints. regards Gordon
  11. Stranger things!

    Stunning frog John...well done mate. regards Gordon
  12. Phyllobates Bicolor

    Well done. Have plenty of food ready for when they morph as they are voracious feeders. regards Gordon
  13. safe water

    I only use filtered rainwater brought up to to vivarium temperature overnight. I wouldnt use tapwater personally. regards Gordon
  14. which plants

    I agree with Nick....also when most people talk of mixing frogs it is in a small to medium size viv....1400mm x 700mm x 600mm is quite a size and is a different matter! Also everyone learns by trial and error with plants and frogs and everyone has different tastes, requirements, and different depths of pockets...this can be an expensive hobby if you are constantly having to replace dead frogs and dead plants because they did not prosper in whatever set up you have...i wasted a lot of money when i first started many years ago so i know to my own cost. regards Gordon
  15. which plants

    It is not easy to sex dart frogs until they are adults...so if you only require males i feel you will struggle to find all male adults of different types unless you know any breeders who will have an excess amount of adult males to sell you. You would find it easier to find a group of all one type of dartfrog which can be kept together as a group such as leucs or tricolors. Dendrobates are better kept as sexed pairs or male heavy trio’s.unless you are experienced as the less dominant ones will die of stress. regards Gordon
