Yes, big list of things to go in, shoal of tetra (not sure which) but all will be Trinidad specific.
Also keen of Pipa pipa and Pseudis paradoxica frogs, fully aquatic and really interesting. That's as well as the stuff loose in the greenhouse.

Tut, where's your sense of dedication?? I mean really?! You choose your genitalia over a large turtle?

I'm disappointed in you Andrew




Incidentally, "You choose your genitalia over a large turtle?" is a sentence I never thought i'd say!

Some pics of my greenhouse!











just thought you'd like to see. Tomorrow I will start to get the stuff together for the filter and the ventilation system since I am having to leave the door open quite a lot because of the heat just now. Even on a dull day the greenhouses are heating up a lot.

In terms of gallons do you know roughly how much water you have in there!??

I have absolutely no clue. One of the nice things about this is exactly that. When I am working for clients I have to calculate gallonage and capacity and equipment specs etc. In this one, I am the client and I really don't care what amount of water is in there. It takes a hose, full on, around 3-4 days to fill. The water depth at the pond is around 6ft and at the head of the river, 30 feet away, it is around 4 1/2 ft. I could work it out but I would prefer to go in for a swim and forget about such things. Anyway I am looking for a natural set up so it will not be heavily stocked with fish. A shoal of around 250 tetras of some description and a shoal of corys with some pairs of central American cichlids and 'bobs your dog', done!

Hmmm, this is making me reconsider the suggestion that our group meet at a reptile expo.......instead perhaps we should get to know each other in an area similar to where we're going.........like this lovely slice of rainforest It looks amazing, well done!!
