  1. More celebrating mediocrity!

    done big water change mass feed filled reservoir put couple tads in morph out tubs ore holiday. Got a leuc and azureus clutch not quite ready to hatch so tried this. Petri dish just fits diagonally into ferrero rocher box half filled with r o oak leaves tiny amount food. Hopefully they hatch slide down absorb yolk for couple days before cannibalism begins.

    what time does bp gas station open 4 of these spotty bellies( couldn’t fit in image) doing the no pants dance in the condesation. Venri=belly maculata=spotty hence venrimaculata you can imagine a zoologists with a jar full of these in the jungle.
  4. Orchid blooms

    that was the one I had (that’s not mine) while plant was 25mm across
  5. Orchid blooms

    I had a tiny birds crest one like a fan. The tree fern panel it was on must have only been 20x30 mm cost about 30 quid. I managed to rot it in 3 weeks. Quite an achievement. Got another minuscule one in pum viv out of spray line seems to be ok.
  6. Orchid blooms

    I e got I think a pleurithalis (poss Stellis can’t remember) ? Or something like that flowering at the mo the flowers are so small that you can barely tell if they are open or not like 2-3 mm. Going to orchid up my next build
  7. dart frogs needs

    Tbh mate if you e got a 900 viv I’d leave that one as it is.tincs are not good mixers anyway . Why don’t you use the bigger viv to house some more frogs. Have a bigger more terrestrial group frog like auratus? Then have a more arboreal thumbnail group too variabilis, vanzolinii or amazonica they would utilise all the viv height. I know you’ve only got males but nothing beats watching the breeding courting egg/tad deposition you could leave a group of Vanzos to do it all themselves. Waterfall wise they are generally a ball ache.if I did another I’d have the pump outside the tank which in itself creates more work. If you had small accessible pump in one corner of your exo protected in your substrate layer the base would act like a big bio filter. I’ve kind of done this with an overflow included so it’s topped up with misting water then now and again I empty a few litres of spring water in. I’m not overly happy with it though
  8. Thrifty duo viv

    Dp cheers. Depending on sexes behaviour etc it is entirely possible he/she will be available and possibly coming to a viv near you.....
  9. Thrifty duo viv

    Yeah they are getting there I was thinking the boldness had been exaggerated but while I was cutting back plants a couple really couldn’t be bothered to move. I tell you what thy don’t like. Springtails. there are more in that viv than in some of my cultures. So once again against froggy rules I’ve added a few thumbs to clean up the clean up crew they are half grown (southern variabilis) the bi color are half grown neither of them could give s damn about the other. They will occupy walls branches broms the bi color oblivious to them on the floor. I added two yesterday (one still to morph/grow on) one hopped straight past biggest bi c he never moved then they’ve settled up top. Same as my leucs santa and French Guyana and now triv viv.none of them care leucs. Pums on their own tincs on their own.

As I’m making my own viv May do another decent sized vertically oriented viv and combine maybe auratus and vanzo group????

    Cheers he doesn’t look that skinny in the flesh. I see flashes of the other 3 but they all look well fed. I cut back loads of foliage in the bi color viv yesterday exposing the 900 flys that must be keeping them in the shadows I could immediately see more of them sitting on top of coconuts as they do. Once they’ve hoovered these I’ll feed more carefully. Like to see them react to feedings like the azureus
  12. Thrifty duo viv

    the nearest gas station around me best I could get
  13. Thrifty duo viv

    I’ll try. Tbh a fungwent through it like wildfire and took alit if the foliage from climbers. It’s recoveriynow but the frogs are a bit elusive. I’ll get a shot if I can
  14. Thrifty duo viv

    Been stocked with 4 pumilio colon one older thought to be female one older thought to be male and two younger for luck range from many tiny round spots poss male lighter blotches poss female big symmetrical lady bird style so should identify individually. Proving to be bit elusive. The likely male seems to be the one I see more and in same place.after a misting I think I just heard his first little crack at calling. Now need to watch for trouble. Not sure if I want to try the group split a pair off? May sell off when sort a pair.
