Re: Pay it forward: advice on setting up a breeding program

Fish bag retics! You rang? ;) I was typing up a response to this, but got too deeply into it and ran out of time to post before class started. I like the idea of keeping at least three pairs within a breeding group to maintain diversity and also prevent against calamities. This becomes quite diffic...

Re: Narino Sylvatica in U.S hobby ?

B - There are pictures in the first couple posts of this very thread. "Koi" sylvatica. They are here in the states in very small numbers and ,of course, in Europe in much larger numbers. Ahh...I was thinking you may be referencing the whitefoots that Wikiri is planning to bring in soon an...

Jim, I'm setting up a greenhouse. I may need to hit you up for some of that Begonia bipennitifida to see if I can get it going in non-viv conditions :)

Re: Ameerega silverstonei ?

It's too soon to tell. They sit under the spot where UV would emit, but that also seems to be one of their go to spots regardless. I'm not sure if they're seeking out the UV in times when it's off by sitting there, or if they just like that area of the tank.

Re: Ameerega silverstonei ?

Water feature is finally looking the way I want it to...had our first storm since moving them and no go. I think they need to settle in a bit, and we can finally see some successes. The UVB is just an Arcadia bulb (6% I think) that is attached to the same timer as my regular lights. They have their ...

Re: Ameerega silverstonei ?

The photos almost capture the intensity of red in these animals. It's still a tad washed out. Their colors are funny in that the red coloration isn't consistent throughout the frogs. Some spots, especially near the fringe of red/black transition, are almost gray to whitish as if there is no pigment ...

Re: Data collection = better frog keeping

I, personally, do not align myself on the pro-"automation for everything" side of the hobby. I find that you're much more in touch with your animals when you actually have to look into each of your tanks on a few times a week basis. It helps develop an attention to detail that I find is mu...

Re: Data collection = better frog keeping

Come on Phil, I understand downplaying the utility of being able to match habitat requirements for common dart frogs, but the terrarium hobby can encompass so much more than just that. Flowering plants, insects, little lizards, etc.. With the public's desire for "rare" and "new"...

Re: I WANT a WATERFALL / STREAM !!!

Yeah, just trying to show that if well-designed, they are not all bad...the key being well-designed. I generally don't do them, but this is an attempt to coax the silverstonei into breeding. Will update as it grows in.

Re: froglets vs juveniles - price difference?

I agree with Beth in that I wouldn't sell any Oophaga froglets before 3 months at a minimum and ideally 6 months. There is just too much going on in their development to fully be confident the animal is strong before that time frame. I'd use the same time frame for the touchier Ranitomeya species as...

Re: Intro from Oklahoma

I've used the MVP in all the tanks I've built in the last two years and am very satisfied with it, so you should be good to go using either that or the size Jim suggested.

I threw away my razor blades when I got out of reef tanks. A paper towel with a little vinegar-water solution and it wipes down to just like new.

Re: I WANT A HEX OR BOWFRONT TANK !!!

I have to disagree with almost all of this... Originally, I kept 5 benedicta in a 30 gallon hex, and having a tall tank with a controlled opening from the top made keeping track of those little lightning bolts way easier than something front opening. The hex eventually began to leak, so I moved them...

Cyber Monday Plant Sales

In the spirit of the day, I've got some things I can ship out before it gets too cold to ship everywhere. I have enough to make at least two plant packages of the following: Diastema lutea Begonia glabra Begonia polliloensis Begonia solananthera Costus sp. Syngonium erythrophyllum Marcgravia sp. Sur...

Re: Historic Oophaga lineages?

Phil, I'm very well aware of the hurdles of PDF husbandry in the 90s, but I'm also very well aware of extremely innovative people who successfully kept and bred dart frogs in the US in the 80s. These same people (one was mentioned) had success with those 90s large obligates and kept diverse selectio...

Re: Historic Oophaga lineages?

Why are you fairly certain that there was less variety than there are today? There are certain locales that have come in as a whole after the legal importations of these old lines, but there was much more variety coming in in the 90s than what is currently available and fairly decent successes were ...
