Re: Why do people Lurk ?

I'm sure that there are some of us that folks would rather not interact with. I know how some froggers perceive me, even though in person, I'm a very easy going gal. I've started to lurk rather than sign in since some of the topics I participate in tend to come to a dead stop or response has been mi...

Re: Cycling Darts for breeding,and the opposite

No, Glenn, I think an igloo is a requirement way up yonder. It's probably buried under the snow somewhere. The thing of the matter is that our lil froggy friends have their own little micro-climates. We can make their summertime occur during our winters just by adjusting the lighting and humidity. W...

Re: Rust on Screen Lid

Interesting question - would you drink rusty water?

Unless someone else voices a different opinion, I think I'd redo the top and replace the screen with glass. There may be some how to's on YouTube if you need assistance -

What size tank do you have?

Re: Tadpole tea?

Howdy, and welcome to the forum. I'll give you my answer, right or wrong, but it works for me. I've never made tadpole tea - I raise my tads in a community tank where they feed off algae, dead fruit flies, detritus and such. BUT - it you want to cup raise your tads using tadpole tea, I believe that ...

Re: North Texas frog meet - Sat, Oct 22

IMO, if you can do that kind of stuff, go for it. My thing is computers, and they're usually pretty easy to fix and clean up, therefore, easy money.

I'm guessing that you don't do the weekend work anymore, huh? Stay home and spend time with the family? Life is too short not to ...

Heheh - that visual cracks me up. I guess it's safe to assume that you have a more tame job now, yes?

I'm glad that you have a sense of humor - what would the world be like if we couldn't laugh about it?

Re: Cycling Darts for breeding,and the opposite

Wintertime is when you drop down the humidity and the food, right? I bet your frogroom gets pretty cool during that time, considering where you are located.

No, I don't think same sex frog tanks would work. You know how pissy females can be.... :?

Anybody else care to chime in?

Re: Cycling Darts for breeding,and the opposite

With humidity control and feeding in mind, do you think that there is sufficient information being relayed to new hobbyists how to raise and lower the humidity and feed more or less depending on whether or not they want to breed their frogs and if they do, how to not over-breed them? Is it possible ...

Re: Cycling Darts for breeding,and the opposite

If I'm reading this correctly, light mist/light feed means that the frogs probably won't breed - is that correct? How long can they go like that?

I had no intentions of causing drama at your house. I've already read thru your stats, and I'm impressed. Anybody who could be a bouncer at a titty bar must've had the 'dream' job.

Please, tell me that you have a sense of humor.... :?

Whoa, Brent - how have I pissed off a lot of people? Is it because I have frogs as a hobby? And what is it that I don't get?

It's really okay, I don't want to go where I'm not wanted. No big deal, at least, not to me ~ I'm just asking polite questions....

Re: What has changed in the past 10 yrs?

I'm afraid the barometric pressure is all in my head, literally. Every time the weather changes, I get a migraine. I think I'll get my sweetie to check it out for me the next time the pressure changes. I have heard that storms will cause frogs to go nuts with their egg laying. My boys have been call...

Re: Ethics in the Dart Frog Hobby - start thread

I know for a fact that I do not ever want to visit Colombia. I also know that I'd rather have a cb frog than wc, but that's my personal option. In my own little weird way, I think it's better to build with the resources we have than to deplete the resources we don't own. You know there's a few decom...

Re: Ethics in the Dart Frog Hobby - start thread

For those of us who are a bit slow, are you saying that because histrionicus were imported in the 90's, there won't be anymore imports ? Doubtful due to Colombia and USWF Agreement on no commerical trade. Due to the fact that frogs properly kept and cared for may live many years? Dunno what you are ...

Hey, I think it's super cool that you and your lady both enjoy the hobby. There's lots of 'kids' where one digs the frogs, and the other simply tolerates them.
