Opinion on Exo terras habisphere tank for 2 dart frogs. Worth the money or complete waste? Enough space or too confided? Looking into getting a nice tank before I purchase dart frogs and liked the look of it. Appears to be a 9.5 gallon tank. However I want the best environment possible for them so if the tank is not good enough do you think a different exo Terra tank would be good or a certain sized fish tank. Thanks.

That depends entirely on the species you want in it. It would probably be great for a couple leucomelas or auratus, but a bit small for more than one of the larger tincs. Not having seen it in person, I would make sure any openings are small enough to keep in your fruit flies. I like the look, though- I don't see why it wouldn't work.

It would be for two auratus dart frogs :) Thanks for your opinion, just wanted to make sure it was good enough for the little lads before I bought it.

    Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol

    Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?
