Thanks Nick,

 

No, only start building my first viv in January first year, then got my first Dart frogs in April.

I've only got 3 Vivarium and 6 darts all Sirensis Highland.

My son has keep Dart frogs before and started with them again last year, I liked them that much I want some for myself.

The viv looks awesome, great selection of plants in there. I especially like the broms with the black base, what are they called? i'd love to try and find some for myself.

I make sure that the wire isn't too tight on the Bromeliad, just enough to hold it in place.

Then wrap some dry moss around the wire and at the base of the bromeliad, this is for the roots and also keeps the bromeliad in place. Put the wire in at a angle to stop the bromeliad from falling.

I think that's about it really.

 

Here's a pic of one that in this viv.

Thank you,

Yes, been in for about 4 weeks now and have settled in fine, In fact I think they love it.

Always out and about and two of the females have laid eggs and the male has fertilized them, so I plan on leaving the eggs in there and see how they get on.
