    I'll have to! It seems like there is always a new post in the New York section.

    I found a good place to buy driftwood.

    Yup aquarium mosses usually work well in a dart frog vivarium, especially on the substrate, because you should be misting about twice daily and keeping the humidity at 80-100%. Other people have done it and it looks really good.

    You should do a half land half water. What is it pauladarium? Something like that. That would be pretty cool, you don't really need an eco terra though.

    May use riccia or java. Not sure which one.

    I do suggest to prepare tour emmerse terrarium plants before hand. you can grow moss in a small take out box. and later on it will just be a matter of moving the carpet into the terrarrium

    i wanr an exo terra when i get out of here. I really want one for a betta :)

    Yeah, I know. Though most like some air flow, so I may see about doing something to have some air flow in the tank. The terrarium will almost be completely sealed, as dart frogs are better off with that since you need to feed usually 3-7 times a week, depending on how much natural food you have. So it would get fresh air from opening for feeding. Not sure if I should use an aquarium or an Exo Terra. I like the benefit of having the front doors.

    moss grows great in terrariums and can be a fabulous carpeting plant :)

    I think that is the plant on land that I see...I'm sticking to baby tears that have been submersed, but if I do a terrarium for dart frogs that may be a plant I choose to grow on the floor.

    hang on... are you seeing this in the wild or do you mean this: ?

    I mean sure you can try it.... if it's scientific name os hermianthus (did i spell that right?) You should be good...

    HC is dwarf baby tears. and the leaves are the size of betta pellets.
