Re: Termites - All general info

Propagation wouldn't be an issue, but what if they decided to snack on your house if they escaped? Not worth the risk IMO.

Re: Poll - Excelsior, Coffee Filter ect for Fruit Fly Culturing

Love the Easter grass, we have experimented with larger batches including gallon jugs- thus the term bottleneck.

Re: Fruit Fly recipes and ingredients

When mixing your cultures, I recommend a wisk type beater on a battery operated drill to help save forearms and speed the process up significantly. For those tool challenged , wear safety glasses and get your parents permission. I have achieved similar results with allowing my 2 year old and 4 year...

Re: One Important Husbandry Tool

Borrowed from planted aquaria-
Long tweezers for planting in larger tanks.
Green cotton thread for tying plants onto wood.
A good misting spray bottle that lasts longer than a week :x
Variety of zip ties for tying up loose cords, mounting things , etc.

Re: LED lights getting hot and burning out??

Anytime you retrofit a LED into a hood without some type of active (best) or passive cooling you risk greatly shortening the life span of the LED bulb or fixture.

Re: I WANT a WATERFALL / STREAM !!!

14. a waterfall or large water feature will look goofy and cramped in a little tank (under 50-70 gallons) 15. It may turn out to look like a papermache lump or concrete blob or that f'ed up volcano you had to build in 6th grade. For the record it was the 5th grade sir, and it was the ugliest thing a...

We will send you a full tablespoon of each of the 3 packaged individually and w...

Re: Sterilizing big branches -methods ?

I suggest a good washing outside with a pressure washer or hose with nozzle and rinse with hydrogen peroxide. I have also heard of folks using bath tubs to soak wood in hot water after knocking the loose nasty things off of the wood. I would not put wild collected wood into your viv without a good c...

Re: Shipping boxes needed

Im new to froggin but have about 15 years in salt and planted aquaria. Why not make your own out with cut to size styrofoam and the size box you need? Styrofoam is pretty cheap, small boxes as well. Throw some insulators and hand warmers in there and you should be good.
