CO2 build up ?
#1
I bumped into a site about this once upon a time (cant seem to find it now). Is this a common problem with small "fish tank" vivariums? I would assume that the exo/zoomed style would not have this type of problem because of the front vents and the constant opening of the front door to feed/water. Considering that the co2 displaces the oxygen on the bottom of the tank (co2 weighs more) is this a common problem ? Just thought i would seek out some experienced hobbyists knowledge on the subject.

Kevin,

The search function....it's your friend Big Grin

Not saying your question is irrelevant, asked and answered already......but it's easier to attach a question to an existing thread that is close to your issue. Makes things a lot easier to find - fewer threads and more info in one place.

NO problem though. Glad you had this question, actually, as I just JUST thinking about this 1 hour ago in my frog room.

Short answer is no, it's not often a problem at all.

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


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

Exoterras with venting - Vivariums with venting are all good to go. No worries.

The problems I have seen first hand and heard about are almost all "Temporary Tank" enclosures that are much more sealed. Some tanks (aquariums) with Saran Wrap over the entire top. "Rigged" or incorrectly mod'ed up tops and lids - usually on fish tanks, not allowing any ventilation. Combined with high temps = your main problem.
