Dt's Frog Room (dtlfeming)
#1
Here is my 40 breeder Leuc build. The plan is to house a trio of Leucs that I will be getting from a Local DB member. Simple GS, silicone, fiber background with two pots carved in. Made my own screen vent and had glass cut locally for the top. Eggcrate false bottom with two raised areas. I have some driftwood in the middle kinda like a small stump.

Nice ! Tank build looks like fun. I love hardscaping vivs.

Good to see a MD member. You're in a "target rich" dart frog hobby member zone.

lol....yeah....I'm editing about 15 threads / posts a night here, sometimes more. Ya got caught up in the "migration".

This site also had miles and miles of mis-filed threads too. A lot of stuff under the wrong sub forum and catagory. A lot of work to make this site more searchable and better archived.

If you ever want something changed, or changed back....jus' holla.

One of my Azureus likes to hide in a brom like an imi or vent. No updates on this tank yet. I will be placing orders next week for supplies and plants to finish it. I also have an order coming in Wed. to finish off the other 10g vert. I probablely will not be adding any frogs to the 10g verts any time soon as I need to setup another rack.

My game plan is to have three custom tanks on top for Tincs, the two 20h's you see and the 40 breeder on the bottom. The second rack will house four 10g verts, three to four 20g verts, and three custom tanks on the bottom. I then have room for two more racks for breeding and grow out. Wishful thinking huh :p

Should have this planted by this weekend or beginning of next week. I got another 10g vert kit in the mail today. So I have another 10g vert setup that will be frog less for awhile. I will be picking up the Leucs for this tank this weekend and have them in the QT container while this grows in.

This tank now has ABG mix and three plants in. I put the glass top on for the first time and realized that the second piece of glass needs more support, as it bows. So I will need to get a 1"x35" piece to attach to the vent screen for more support. I also picked up the frogs today for this tank. They look great and the have more of an orange-yellowish color.

I was going to say the same thing!

I am so jealous of you guys that have basements....my next home is soooo going to have one. I have to keep all 10 of my tanks in my living room...

Leucs look very nice.

Tks, I also have six frogs ordered from Sean Stewart. And my OCD is kicking in, I think I will move the 40br to the rack with the verts. Im planning on making 9 custom vivs, so I would like them to all be on the same rack.

Guess I need to start a Frog Room thread since I keep making new tanks. I started on a 20vert today. Simple driftwood, GS, silicone background. It will house E. anthonyi "SI" pair.

Very nice !

Most people use cocohuts for Leucs and the older and fatter they get, the more they will be on the ground and not climbing - just a FYI. 2 Large Leucs are a very tight fit in a film can and sometimes egg fertilization is hard to accomplish that way.

Nothing earthshattering.....Leucs can be happy in a Vert tank -especially a big one like a 40.
