Postby Philsuma » Tue Apr 19, 2011 7:23 pm

I'm seeing about 8-10 U.K froggers over here.....very nice !

Welcome guys.

Is it "U.K" , or is there a better term ?

UK works for me.

It's a slow invasion with us Brits but we'll get there in the end - stiff upper lip and all!

Yep, fine with me too,and Marcus is right, slow but sure...watch out we are coming Lol. As a novice i think things are slowly gaining momentum over here,although i guess our hobby is in its infancy compared to the states ,Holland and Germany.

Marcus...Stu...meet Scar !

I appreciate you guys hanging out over here from time to time. There's a good Dart Forum over there (not as old as this one) and I've tried to reach out to the owner with no luck. Posting and checking info is ok to do - U.S / U.K forums, but be SURE to patronize and support all the local meets and gatherings. THAT's where the true enjoyment and strength of this hobby comes from , TRUST me on that ! All the local friends and hobbyists that you meet will at one point, be worth thier weight in gold with regards to helping you have fun in this hobby. Fact.

Hi danisparks,

UK frog day will be held on Manchester on the 9th Oct, all the major UK breeders along with some of the big European breeders will be there selling frogs, equipment & plants etc, last time there talks from respected breeders as well so its well worth a look if you can make it there pm me if you need any info or just want to chat things through. I'm fairly new to darts as well so it would be good to compare experiences.

thanks phelsumaman
i googled it and found the details, just wish i could get there my local rep suppliers all seem pretty useless when it comes to any advice on frogs, im currently working on an exo terra viv 35"x 23"x 18" with a foamed background incorporating a waterfall and ultrasonic fogger, looks quite good and many friends have complimented me on how well it looks so it cant be too bad,just having difficulties finding suitable leaflitter and soil mixes, im in the midlands btw

Hey Dan,
Where about in the midland? Do you know about www.dartfrog.co.uk ? They're based in worcesrershire & is the #1 shop for darts, search on here about leaflitter, soil mixes etc, please don't buy this stuff, it costs a bomb & you can do it yourself.

By the way would be great to see some pics of your viv, people on here are very helpful & you'll get some really constructive feed back

Try the following mix, 1 pt coco fibre, 2 pts extra fine bark chips, 2 pts moss ( collect this yourself & sterilise in the microwave) 1 pt ground xaxim fibre (available from dartfrog), 1 pt leaf mould ( oak is best ) + 1 pt dried ground oak leaves along with some calcium carbomate. Add on some springs & woodlice & you have a great natural Substrate
