  1. More celebrating mediocrity!

    Cool, let us know how this pans out.
  2. Tiiiiiiiiiiiny success

    Great photo mate, lovely frogs.
  3. Orchid blooms

    Lovely little plant that. The smallest I have is Schoenorchis fragrans, I have it mounted on cork up high in the mysti viv, it gets a spray once a day.
  4. Orchid blooms

    Restrepia brachypus and Aerangis fastuosa blooms from this morning.
  5. Orchid blooms

    Would love to see a photo if you could get one mate, maybe you could try a magnifying glass/camera combo? I've got well into the orchids, not sure if I can cram any more species into my two vivs though (maybe some Barbosella species ).
  6. Orchid blooms

    Scaphosepalum verrucosum, these are tiny so sorry for the sub par phone photo.
  7. Orchid blooms

  8. dart frogs needs

    I bet they'd all really enjoy the extra height, would be a good chance to create some nice levels with wood/vines etc. Any reason for choosing the exo terra?Have you considered having a viv custom built (it's not as expensive as you think)?
  9. dart frogs needs

    Vivarium size and orientation depend very much on the species of frogs and how many you are keeping. Waterfalls are not necessary, I've never attempted one myself if you decide to build one make sure you do lots of research, it would be a shame to spend money on your build and it not work out. I use the European style vivariums with sloping glass bottom and water gulley, I do keep water in the gulleys along with the aquatic plant Limnobium laevignatum (frogbit), water changes are carried out at least weekly, my frogs like to deposit tadpoles in the water.
  10. Thrifty duo viv

    They must just be sitting and waiting for the flies to walk into their mouths lol (mine do this when there are lots of flies), when they reach maturity they'll have a vicious feeding response mate, been feeding mine moths this week and they are like piranhas!
  11. Thrifty duo viv

    Stunning frog mate.
  12. Tiny new frog

    Amazing, thanks for sharing mate.
  13. Favourite lil viv

    Looks great mate, I can't be doing with FB either.
  14. Terribilis build

    Looking really good there mate.
  15. fruit fly culture media

    Repashy here, never tried any alternatives so can't really comment on anything else.
  16. Amesiella phillipinensis flowering

    I've done the same before mate ha ha. If you need any advice on positioning/watering etc just give me a shout.
  17. First of my orchids to flower in viv, smells great too.
  18. Green stripe trivs

    Beautiful mate, Trivs would be my next choice if I had room.
  19. Thrifty duo viv

    They'll get there mate, mine were shy and jumpy at the same age. I remember one of yours them having quite orange lateral stripes, hopefully it'll keep that colour into adulthood.
  20. Thrifty duo viv

    Looks excellent mate.
  21. Thrifty duo viv

    Nice hardscape mate, looking forward to seeing it planted up.
  22. Phyllobates Bicolor

    Starting to colour up nicely there.
  23. best moss to use

    Hi, The only moss I have ever had any success with has hitchhiked in on orchids that I have purchased, it needs to be kept wet and have good lighting, it only really took off when I upgraded my lights from t5s to higher output leds and only really seems to grow near the roots of the orchids (wetter here due to watering), unfortunately I'm unsure of the species (could even just be sphagnum). Tropical rather than local moss will probably fare better, hopefully some one with more moss growing experience will chime in on the subject. Cheers.
  24. merry christmas

    Merry Christmas to everyone here, hope you all have a great new year.
  25. other food to feed

    Bean beetles, woodlice, springtails, pea aphids, firebrats are all good feeders to add to your flies and crickets mate.
