that old post is still getting notes so here’s some updates on my room. not nearly as minimal as before but that’s what happens i guess. pictured is two unfinished vivariums for frogs, an aquarium, not pictured is two more tanks (with african fat tailed geckos and a blue tongue skink)
Anyone have any suggestions or tips for starting a bioactive setup? I’d like to have one for both my crestie and my red eyed croc skink- which will need a high humidity
I know I need a drainage layer (hydroballs or aquarium gravel maybe) then something to separate that from the soil. Do my plants get planted in that drainage layer? Or on the substrate on top? If my drainage layer helps keep the humidity up do I mist less? I was hoping to get misters set on a timer too along with the UVB and heaters on a thermostat
Where do I get springtails?
I’m essentially trying to make this setup as automated as possible and still have it be beautiful and enriching for my scaly children
Many reptiles(and amphibian) I was overjoyed that we were able to see a Red-Eyes crocodile Skink(I love them a lot) A REALLY CUTE LEACHIE GECKO. Asian Water dragon was a juvenile, and very placid, it is basically Iguana Lite.
There were two blue-tongued Skink A Spiny Chameleon(which by the way as an adult can cut you by walkin g on you. :I) an American Bull Frog(This frog was huge jesauce) And a big chunky lady Tegu ;w; I loved her she was sooooo soft(tyler liked her the most :0)
