    Basilisk

    Thanks for the thoughts Ed, they were helpfull.  I have ended up with pothos and they are working well so far.  Spath is another good one, but I find gets way to tall in the tank, had one on the land side that I had to remove cause it was taking over, it did flower but was crushed by the lid.  I...

    Basilisk

    Thanks for the thoughts, So far no nose bumps or rubbing. My bigger issue that I'mgetting fixed, is the tank originally had mirrors on the bank (when it was a CP tank). I've covered much of the mirror with cork bark pieces but obviously not enough. The male basilisk keeps watching his...

    Basilisk

    No fish tank, although I'm considering a couple of minnows in the lizard pool, does that count? LOL The water set up in the tank is a large plastic container (about 1/3 the floor space of a 55 gal tank) with a small plastic container inside. The pump sits between the two and pumps water up a...

    Basilisk

    Good ideas Allosaurz. Water Lettuce is on my list to look for, I think the water Hyacinth may get too big (if it makes it LOL). I'm also thinking about some water chestnuts, I think I can get those at the supermarket. I want something with a good root system but the plant itself can't get huge...

    Basilisk

    Thanks Jim, Sure couldn't prove weather by us right now, tons of rain and still way to cold. Looking forward to good motorcycle weather soon. The basilisk's, Bonnie and Clyde, are doing great so far. The swimming pool was open at 7:00 Am and they both were taking a dip. I think they are...

    Basilisk

    Thanks for the links. Bonnie and Clyde are not green, they are the common brown type but I expect care to be pretty much the same. I tried some grapes this AM to see if they will try some fruit, they sure love the crickets, having gone through about 6 dozen in less than a week. I'm going to...

    Basilisk

    Hi all, old time member but not around very often lately so not sure if many of you will remeber me. I have recently acquired a pair of basilisk, how cool are they   .  They are very active and sure like to eat and swim.  Couple of questions for anyone who has raised these guys before.  Is tap...

    Fish in the pond?

    Wow, I have been very remiss to not check back on this post I started, sorry but thanks for the responses. So far I've not added anything to the pond, although I have some triops I considered putting in just for the heck of it. Iggie does not seem to use the pond for drinking or swimming. I am...

    Anyone ever try s/h growing on a nepth?

    Well, time will tell. I repotted this weekend, although cheated a bit cause I left a ball of LFS around the roots and set the whole thing on top of the clay chips in the container. I actually need to rinse off more chips to fill the container and that is the one thing that is a pain. I swear I...

    Anyone ever try s/h growing on a nepth?

    Thanks for your thoughts Slizarus. Your point about minerals in the clay is a good one, time will tell I guess if there is a problem. I really like the idea about using peat tea to water with. I am going to run a test and can keep you posted if interested.

    Anyone ever try s/h growing on a nepth?

    My new venture for this year is orchids. Started with a kmart rescue a couple of months ago and now have 6--oppps, off topic LOL Anyhow, in researching care, I came across S/H growing for orchids (semi hydroponics). It made me think that a nepth may be a canidate for this type of growing since...

    Fish in the pond?

    Detail:   55 gal tank, houses 1 male Mountain Horn Dragon (Iggie), set up is 1/3 water, 2/3 land planted, with tons of logs and climbing spots across the top. The water area is contained in (2) buried plastic containers, the larger container set up for filtration (using live plants), the...

    What is it?

    I agree with Tamlin. Although, hens and chicks, do flower and after the plant dies, leaving the chicks to carry on :-)

    Couple more questions

    Thanks Suzanne, Good to know about the humidity, in the winter I do keep a mist vaporizor going so that will help when it is most needed. I'll look for the clip you mentioned, although I think the dend is fine. The longest root has just reached the edge of the pot and the next one is not far...

    Couple more questions

    Very interesting and informative, thanks Merlin. I suppose there is a wiggle when I pick up the pot although I do try to be careful. Well, I'll just make myself keep my fingers off and maybe try using the binoculars to get a better look----just kidding, eyesight not good but not THAT bad LOL...
