    heading to home depot to get plants for a 10 gallon froggie home. Suggestions required. I assume my Dingly VFT would be a bad choice.

    Looking for plants that won't overgrow the tank and I want to leave a lot of hopping and hunting space

    thanks

    Dendrobates Tinctorius Patricia, similar to a cobalt or yellow back.

    They are 2-3 months old, 4 frogs in a 10 gallon.

    A N. gracilis would be nice if the temps are right, just make sure you prune. Supposedly some darts even lay eggs in the pitchers, and they live [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Tillandsias are nice, too!

    I have decided to put my Gracilis in the tank, along with a small bromalad, and some viney looking houseplant. I found some sort of ground cover moss at homedepot that I'll be using as carpeting.

    I'm hoping the Gracilis is too small for them to get into since tincs get fairly large, up to 2 1/2in. I really wanted to put one of my extra N. Amps in there but I don't have any mature Amps to compare size with. If one day it opened a large pitcher while I wasn't looking I could very well lose a $50 tinc.

    I think I'm going to start looking for other colors of gracilis to help decorate. I've actually modified a second 10 gallon to sit on top of the first so now it's like a 20 gallon tall except the top is glass and I removed one pane (sp?) of glass in the front and made a door out of plexi glass. Looks pretty good and it should make the frogs and the N. Gracilis happier.

    Also I made an auto misting system. I figure two minutes twice a day should be good.

    Tillandsias sound like an excellent idea, where can I look for these?

    joe

    Still looking for more suggestions from those with vivariums/planted attruims.

    I would seriously think about upgrading the size of your terrarium, 10 gallons will not house 4 adult D. tinctoriuos for long. I would say 30 gallons would be the min.
    The misting systems is probably unnecessarry, we need to remeber that this is an enclosed space its not as though youve got massive air currents moving through or around this thing.
    Id be very cautious about usings Neps where youve got Dendrobates nearby, I dont know what you paid for your frogs but ill bet youd be pretty upset to find one missing only to peer into a pitcher and find it drowned and partially digested. Thats an expensive snack.

    And by the way it is spelled BROMELIAD!
    Pronounciation Bro-mel-E-ad.
    Im pretty undrestanding when it comes to typos but when I see a Genera repeatedly misspelled it really bothers me, I mean cmon people pay some attention to what your reading and writing!
