    So im currently building a bioactive paludarium and i am wondering if any of you got suggestions of lizards that would go well in this type of tank. I'm still scaping it so if i could determine what i want in it now I should be able to cater it's surroundings to it better. The tank is 10 feet...

    Hey all! This is my first time posting here so I apologize if this is not how things are done... I'm thinking of potentially making two bioactive biotope terraria, one with tropical rainforest plants native to Peru (optimally the Cusco/Manú National Park area), and the other with southwestern...

    I have recently bought a new viv, and want to make it bioactive. However, the bottom plinth is only 7cm (just under 3"), which is not really tall enough for a bioactive substrate and drainage layer. Has anyone ever put in acrylic/perplex that is taller than the wooden plinth? In theory, it...

    When would be the best time to move my gargoyle gecko into his bioactive? I’ve heard a bunch of different opinions from 2weeks to 2months.

    In Ireland there seems to be a springtail shortage with all the large reptile stores. Is this happening anywhere else?

    Hello! I recently set up my entire vivarium setup in April and I am now noticing a small pest in my terrarium. There are an abundance of linear springtails and Oreo crumble isopods living in the substrate which I intentionally added myself, but recently I’ve noticed this other small oddity and...

    Hello! I am planning some vivariums for my ball python and a future boa (either hog island or dumerils, I haven’t decided!), and I need some advice on the building materials. I’ve decided on 12mm OSB board with liquid rubber as a sealant, these will be bioactive so it needs to hold water. I’d...

    So I have a custom wooden enclosure that I am adapting for a corn snake bioactive setup. I am using dry lock on the bottom to waterproof the bottom area, and a silicone, and Great stuff foam for the background. I was told Great stuff attaches better if you use a layer of silicone first...

    Today, I set up a bioactive viv for my leopard gecko but the humidity is high! I have not even added the plants yet, just substrate and hides because it was taking too long to sort and she needed to go back inside. I have added woodlice and springtails too. The substrate I used was just eco...

    Does anyone know the toxicity of this plant the Autumn fern Dryopteris erythorosa to reptiles?
  16. Snakes
    I'm a big fan of the idea of getting a pet that is 'easy' to care for, then taking the care to the next level. I don't want a pet with super complex requirements, I want to give one with simpler requirements the best possible captive life. So, I've been doing loads of research on corn snake...

    https://youtu.be/gwP9b0UbX-o Just sharing this video of the water feature in my Sphaerodactylus macrolepis vivarium. It's a 60x45x60cm glass exo-terra and houses a single female S. macrolepis. She has lived in here for three years. The room this tank sits in is very, very dry and the...

    I was tending my crested gecko's substrate today and noticed a tiny light brown microfauna I don't think I have seen before. The enclosure has been doing well for over a year with dwarf white isopods and springtails, and no new animals have come into the house for months. I know the pictures...

    Hi there, About a year ago I picked up 3 Eutropis Macularia, they have been doing great for me in my 4ft bioactive vivarium and have bred multiple times (I've sold the babies back to the reptile shop) and I really enjoy keeping them. They are about 4-4.5" snout to vent and eat crickets with the...
