Okay everyone, I found this awesome, Victorian-looking, glazed ceramic washbasin in my grandparent's basement. It's mine now. I have been mulling over what to do with it for a few months now and i have finally decided. I want to dedicate it to some tropical pings. I need some advice though... here are my questions:
1. Can you mix different ping species provided they have similar needs? If so, which species would do well together? I really like the flatter rosette species as opposed to something like P. moctezumae.
2. What substrate mix would you recommend. I have an UN-IDed ping right now growing in a 50/50 peat and perlite mix along with some long grained sphagnum. It is doing quite well. Would that function well in for other tropical species?
3. I have noticed that the two pings I own seem not as greasy as other pings. They still digest insects, some they catch, others I feed to them. Is this due to lack of water? They seem to be growing quite well otherwise...
I think that is a good jumping off point. I will probably have more questions as this progresses. I want to do this the right way! Thanks!
