  1. Thrifty duo viv

    Exciting to see mate, just don't tell me you are getting some tincs for it! I was recently put off DMS as they have not been on the ball with supplying people with lights and vivs on time, but when you think of the work that goes into it and the amount a business must pump out, I don't envy anyone doing it, that being said I need several vivs built next year as upgrades etc as buying pre-made from DF is too expensive and limits where you can utilize space. I am not brave enough to even attempt making one.

    I would suggest clove oil or even better aqua sed then, you can get it on amazon and it's a 'proper' fish sedative, however the clove works very well for most people, there is just some concern that it would irritate a tad more than the aqua sed before sending it off. I don't think any tad would be resistant to a proper fish sedative overdoes and it's the most humane way to go, I know I would choose being sedated to death as a primary option! While there is the concern re continual egg laying and the females getting worn out I very rarely hear anyone mention issues if they supplement their frogs, if the female is struggling for certain micro-nutrients she should stop producing, and if not, she is well enough to keep on trucking. With the availability of good dusting nowadays I really don't see it being an issue? There is the fact that with pretty much all animals the more they produce the shorter the lifespan, not sure how this relates to frogs but frankly if you have happy healthy frogs that lay constantly and naturally pass a year earlier than frogs kept in less ideal conditions I know what I would choose.

    Well done mate, they're a very underrated species imo, just because they are easy and cheap doesn't mean they aren't great frogs! I'd not be one for removing females (frogs don't tend to be at their peak if moved constantly), it is a sticky subject but if you are gonna be overrun (the market for SI's is OK but I doubt a hundreds would be able to sell!) I would remove eggs as laid if possible, I know that people who have similar issues humanely euthanize the tads with either vodka, clove oil or aqua sed. But I don't know whether people in this hobby usually discuss it unless it's a very damaged or deformed tadpole.
  4. Terribilis build

    Perhaps a terrible one =P I wouldn't be opposed to some yellow/orange terribs but it's have to be December or after unless I find some gold nuggets in the garden!
  5. Tiiiiiiiiiiiny success

    Yeah they are doing great, even had a male try to call, it is still a bit pathetic right now! Not sure, got it from Mark at dartfrog, think it was neoregelia mottled or some such, he didn't have in the species I wanted but this one is nice and offsets well already.
  6. Tiiiiiiiiiiiny success

    I am a bit biased but I'd say it was worth it They turned out pretty darn well if you ask me, they've become one of my favorites!
  7. Stranger things!

    Hoping to get a glimpse of this little guy soon when I pick my guys up, much nicer to look at that most albinos though I have to say.
  8. Terribilis build

    Ahhh John... I really want some phyllobates... You are making it hard to resist! I hope I can pop round and see this in the flesh, even better if it has the frogs in! I am a tad jealous...
