Well, never done a rain chamber before...
Cost me a grand total of 89p for the gravel/water tray :lol2:

Rain Chamber test run - YouTube

As vid description says this was just to check it would work...I'll be tidying it all up and adding a heater, pebbles/bricks, foliage etc when and if the time comes, and will be filling the black box with coco so they can bury if they so wish (Bloody hope they won't tho!!)

Anyway, any comments, hints or tips ??

hopefully putting my k.pulchra in here soon... need to wake em up first tho !! So any tips on this species ??

It's similer to the one I use.

I wuld recomend adding gravel to the box ontop as this willl make the water fall out in 'drops' instead of a constant stream.

You may wat to add a water heater to it so it has the correct temps.

I DID think the water was a bit too constant so pebbles in it to slow it down/make it drip is a great idea :2thumb:

Yeah, i've got a water heater lined up ready to use

I'm probably going to put the tray inside the tub, because the pump was on its slowest setting during the trial and the tray was slowly filling with water (Don't want it overflowing,, moreso if it has to be inside for the temperature... although i'm a bit put off my other peoples comments of k.pulchra sounding like a herd of cattle in their bedroom!!! eventhough my male doesn't sound anything like a cow :lol2:)

If you're going to go with that type of system make sure you secure that pipe, the frogs will climb it (I know Kaloula don't look capable of climbing but they can get up an upright length of 15mm pipe) and if they shift it while doing so you'll just pump the water out into your carpet.
