Re: Has anyone tried lowering their lighting?

The new Finnex 24/7 automated dawn/dusk lights might be a good option for anyone who wants to experiment with lower light levels through some of the day. The most intense part of the photoperiod is only about 6 hours long, the rest of the time the light is slowly ramping through dawn/dusk or in moon...

Stat comparison for 4 AUTOMATED LED fixtures (Finnex, curren

So in a couple other threads on DB and on plantedtank.net I created posts comparing the stats between some of these different lights and I thought It might be nice/helpful to consolidate all the info into one thread for people to reference, subscribe/bookmark, or in case they don't get over to those...

Uh "shit" was supposed to be "what", sorry didn't catch it within edit time limit. The fox had infiltrated the living room and was pillaging the area at will, had to take defensive action.

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

There are other problems for sure, on par if not greater then the hybrid issue... Agreed I would argue though in the time I've been in the hobby (10 years) we've done a pretty fair job of keeping the accepted practices, the accepted practices. Sure occasionally things happen, but there is a lot of i...

*Edit* OK short version isn't all that short... call it version 2 instead ;) We have a system of checks and balances in place now. A general if occasionally vague set of accepted standard practices. However flawed it is responsible for us having the hobby we have in its current form... A form that c...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

They aren't forcing me to buy frog, but are forcing on me more risk, that makes what I want less possible. It even has the potential to make it imosssible . Much of what they want to do could hurt what we have, and wanna keep having. We can only hurt their feelings but they can take pure stock and ...

NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING TO YOU WHEN THEY HYBRIDIZE. RAPE IS FORCED ON SOMEONE, NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO BUY DART FROGS!!! You are wilfully participating in an act, owning frogs, no one is forcing you as in rape." Skewed/Missed the point again... They aren't forcing me to buy frog, but are for...

P.S. I do agree with him that the allotted editing time is way to short compared to DB or some other forums, it is the single most frustrating thing about posting here when you do intricate posts with links, pics, vids, multi quotes and other BB code. By the time I notice the mistake, find it in the...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

By the way my comments relating homosexuality and rape basically amounted to, me not caring what they do because it doesn't harm me, and that rape or victimizing anyone who is vulnerable isn't justified just because they couldn't stop you. If that unsettles you then, wow you are unsettling me now. ...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

This "it's going to ruin the hobby for us" holds no water. Show me, in a hobby where they want locale specific genetics, that hybrids have run out the pure breds? Not 1. I showed that panther chameleons have both hybrid and pure bred. So do leachies. THERE IS NO RISK IN BREEDING OUT ALL T...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

I think Aaron and Dave are on the same page more than they might think. By the contentious tone of the last few posts, it may be hard to see that. Can you clarify? Mostly I see him trying to expand tiny degrees of change into massive ones that he thinks should lead us to just throwing in the towel....

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

Dude, just because you write more doesn't make it true. You've taken most everything out of context, forgot that women can be lesbians(they can't be because men might not have people to have sex with?) and can not see how flawed your arguments are. First, hybrids are natural, that argument is gone....

Re: 120 gallon Ghostviv Red Galact build

Thanks Dave! I wish I could get a count on M/F but I basically see a few red frogs, hear calling from the depths of the viv, then tadpoles magically appear out front. Occasionally we see a spat break out between two males who go tumbling across the viv them disappear into the shadows :) They are a ...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

There are already unknown hybrids in the hobby. Dwarf, surinam, brazilian yellow heads are all crosses I heard people making because they didn't know the difference and thought all were just cobalts. Standard leucs are an amalgamation from different imports. Bicolors. Auratus. A lot of the old line...

Re: 120 gallon Ghostviv Red Galact build

Looks great, If you ever get an extra calling male drop me a line (Hopefully, I'll have some cash). Mine seem to be all females, or gay. Which is fine, I respect their life choice... but I want grandchildren :)

Re: Good frog shelving / racks ?

I have one of the 4ft bakers rack and like it, but the poles I think keep you from putting 48" of tanks on it, more like 45-46" usable space I think. My parents picked up this 6' industrial rack at Lowes or homedepot. I don't remember how much they are, but as you can see there is room for...
