New Dart Frog Tank

Post  gatsu7 on Mon Oct 04, 2010 7:24 pm

I built this today for our dart frogs that are currently shipping from Saurian.net. They won't live in it for a month or 2, but I wanted to go ahead and build it so I could iron out any kinks before I add the frogs. I will also be adding a couple of half-coconut hides for them.

Before I started:

I made the lid as well. Lowe's will cut the glass for you, and I added the hinges and handle with silicone. The lid only costs about $10 doing it this way.

Very nice, Michael. I really like the little waterfalls. They are quick and save a lot trouble building one from scratch. One like that is on my "want list." Where did you get the pillow moss? I just re-did my fire-belly toad tank today. I have gotten to the stage where I build for the frogs not necessarily for me. I never get tired of my frogs.

The moss is T-Rex from PetSmart. I hated to have to buy it there ($8 per tiny bag), but I can't find any place that sells it locally.

By the way, I bought the Hydroton at The OKC Urban Gardener at 36th and Western. He has good prices and lots of other hydroponics supplies as well.

I know of a nice, locally owned shop that also sells pillow/frog moss Wink
