  Frogs direct - New Website!
Posted by: pet_tree_gnat - 10-26-2020, 10:35 PM - Forum: News from the Den. - No Replies

Hello everybody, if you don't know me I helped Phil get the site back up and running and I love my frogs and plants and vivariums way more than my family likes to admit.  I on the other hand love talking about my frogs and most people think I'm a freak, anybody relate?

I just launched a website, frogsdirect.com, focused on the community, giving you all a place to sell your frogs, plants, supplies, art, apparel, anything you can think of frog related.  You may also sell harmless reptiles but that's not going to be my focus (if you have them and you want a place to sell to the public, go ahead).  I have my own frogs and I have my own plants and I'll get more and try to be more of a direct supplier but if I'm going to do all that work I figured hey why not give it to everybody else too.  There's a few big benefits that I see here.  

People can buy from more than one line or breeding stock to make their own breedable groups. 

Every time you shop a single frog website the stock is typically limited and everything you're looking at is gone.  If we bring everybody together in one place including those stores that already have websites, because you can easily integrate with our website, we can offer the public the largest selection of healthy captive bred frogs  and supplies and the best selection of plants on the internet because we are all plant freaks deep beneath the surface. I've been working day and night to build relationships and wholesale accounts as well tweaking and tuning the website so that it's super easy for everyone to use.  

I expect there to be some hang ups early on but you get your money instantly through PayPal and I help you calculate the shipping, and if you want you can print a shipping label or use your own, like SYR, you can even put in your own API codes and use your own accounts for shipping. Everything is secure I have anti-spam and vendor verification enabled.  Vendor reviews and product reviews, everything under the sun that I could think of, with plenty more features to come in the next few weeks.  This post is barely scratching the surface of the capabilities and possibilities of how great we can make this as a community, together.  I hope you all join me and post what you have and send me any questions or suggestions.

  WANTED: MALE D. leucomelas
Posted by: christina.stefano - 09-10-2020, 12:30 AM - Forum: Dart Frog Classifieds - No Replies

Hello all,

I have a male D. leucomelas whose cage mate died about 2 months ago. He just started calling, so I estimate him to be around 6-8 months old. He has been interacting with me a lot more, and I feel that that has started since the other passed away. I feel bad for him  Sad

I'm specifically looking for a male around the same age as he is, however any adult will do.

Show me what you have! I'm not particular on patterns, but I do want it to be at least a little distinguishable from him. See attached picture.

Thank you in advance!

  Frog room construction
Posted by: pet_tree_gnat - 07-30-2020, 01:43 AM - Forum: Enclosures, Setup and Construction - Replies (11)

I am redoing my basement to be my frog room and have to move all of my tanks downstairs.  Really just ran out of room and it takes up too much space and we have an empty basement so I figured let's really do this right.  for now I'm going to have one wall of tanks and then several other tanks on other walls.  I might move my snake rack down in the basement as well but they have different temperature requirements and do pretty well upstairs where most the heat goes so I might let my kids keep them.  Here are some of the construction pictures if you are interested I can share how I made the joints it was pretty easy to build and everything comes out square.  All constructed with 2x4s minor sanding and planning and krylon black acrylic paint.  The valence at the top which is very difficult to see in these pictures I'll post more when the frog room is done was done with spray paint.

  elitech data loggers
Posted by: joneill809 - 07-19-2020, 12:29 PM - Forum: Lighting, Misting Systems, Tweaks, Modifications - Replies (1)

I've grown tired of my old lascar data loggers - the company stubbornly remains windows only for their support software, and we're Mac/Linux only. I found these $35 temperature and humidity loggers on amazon - build quality is kind of cheap, but for what I'm using them for, they turned out to be pretty cool. 


I bought two of these for my tree monitor project as a test run to see how well they work. I ended up drilling access ports behind a basking area and in a dark hide on the other end of the PVC viv. This may be trickier with my existing glass boxes since i have all the access ports in the zoomeds and exoterras covered with my top glass, but I can drill a port in my top glass at some point. 

Using the single probe for temp and humidity was a bit glitchy for me so I wired both. I set them to 1 minute samples with circular logging (11 day duration, 16,000 datapoint buffer) and ran it for about a day then checked the data through their MacOS (!) app.

I'll be working with them longer term tuning misting cycles and temperatures, but this is an interesting and cheap device that could be pretty useful. This viv is running at a gradient of 90% RH to 60% RH, and 72F to 93F which is pretty close to where I want to be. I have been spot checking other areas with my temperature gun, but I really like having the data logged to see continuous Temp & RH at least during my viv tuning cycles. This big viv is going to have permanent loggers though.

This company has even cheaper temperature only loggers that are similar to the Lascar design where you can just drop a USB logger directly in the viv. I didn't find a similar model with RH support, so I ended up going the probe route. I'm also not interested in more expensive models - I think have a higher number of cheaper loggers is more useful for really understanding the behavior of a viv.

EDIT: I went back and noticed they do have a USB RH/Temp logger that you can drop in the viv - these may be better for spot checking random vivs here and there:

  Background adhesives
Posted by: joneill809 - 07-11-2020, 11:35 PM - Forum: Enclosures, Setup and Construction - Replies (15)

What’s everyone using these days? My go to for years has just been siliconed cork to glass without additional treatment. I blackout the background with shelf paper for a pretty clean look. I’m building out a large V prasinus enclosure and I want the entire background and sides climbable. I’ve lined the entire enclosure with cork panels and I’m attaching cork flats and rounds to that for a more natural look. Additionally I want to treat it with peat and glue to soften the look and make it more natural looking. 

So is the go to still gorilla glue? If so which one? Any other adhesives that look promising?
