    Ok so, this is a bit of an odd situation. To cut a long story short, I created a large bioactive setup, decided after a few months that I didn't like how it was going, and tore it all down. The animals have been returned to a standard setup, and I'm left with a huge amount of seeded substrate...

    I actually bought an animal not long ago (as opposed to taking on rescues), a small little captive bred Ornate uro from a friend of mine. It really is such a difference to work with captive bred animals. He is practically fearless, and more than happy to jump on my hand as Im bringing food into...

    I have some bugs in my substrate but I dont think they are coping too well so Im going to add earthworms help out! Can I just catch these from outside or should I buy them to make sure theres no parasites in them?

    Hello all... I am attempting my first viv with bioactive substrate, I know the basics, i.e.: hydroleca, weed fabric, mix of organic compost, coir and orchid bark...my question is about leaves. I have a ready supply of bromeliad leaves from a plant that I barely manage to keep alive that...
