Going to keep them at room temp & fairly dry on the surface I should know whether I have a viable culture in less than a month or so, will keep you all updated

very interesting Ben,what are you going to feed and what subs? and what colour are they? If they do mate i might be so bold as to ask for a swap with you if you don't have these siera.Just out of interest to you, we do these seira in small containers on coco fiber,as we discussed but so far i haven't got these to do well in larger cultures,but i seeded a large charcoal,that had failed with folsuma? seems to be going well,but too early yet to be sure
take care

I have a request for "over the Pond".....

Can someone recommend a particular person...person or business that has the most info and ability for knowledge of the U.K frog hobby ?

Did that come out right? I need a personal contact with someone over there that "knows everyone" in the hobby, ect, ect.

PLEASE do not post the recommendation of info on this thread, though.

PM me.

Thank you all in advance.

Yeah he's a good un i think,he always seems to manage to make time for folks while still running around like a headless chuck.
Some folks don't like him,i think its jealousy,he starts so many guys in this and to me anyway provides service as good as one could wish for.
