Slightly, but I wouldn't call them quiet. I can hear mine from almost anywhere in the house.
Greap pictures Chuck. I think those backgrounds you are working on are going to look awesome and interesting. Can't wait to see them finished.

Thanks Ulises!

Decibel for decibel, the vanzos and the el dorado are probably pretty close, but the vanzos tend to be more towards the "occasional bird song" end of the noise spectrum vs. "unrelenting dentist drill" :mrgreen:

Cricket chirp vs. choo choo chug chug.

Nice vivs Chuck.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

Thanks! Didn't get as far as I'd like tonight; just got started and had to stop and babysit an antsy client for two hours... Don't these people understand priorities? :roll:

Motivated to get these done; not enough room for them and the stuff staged for them without one thing or another being on the floor where it's either in the way, not getting light or in danger of getting damaged :-)

Did moving the mister holes fix the issue?

lol... Caught with a mock-up -- mister heads and drains in, but I won't hook them to the pump until the whole rack is done; just hand sprayed it for the moment. I think they should be fine, tho; I'll post a follow-up...

Chuck you have some beautiful frogs and vivs sir. The 4 new ones are looking really nice. I look forward to seeing them all done.

Question for you, the cork round in the center that the broms are mounted to, I assume is hollow but did you block the ends off or do you leave it open for the frogs to use?

Thanks!

Dustin, I leave them open; I figure it offers just that much more shelter if they're feeling insecure.

Thanks Chuck. I figured but wasn't sure. I have a hollow stump in my leuc viv and they use is constantly. Even though your taking up space with the log or stump in my case, your also adding space back.
