hi
i am new to hobby but not new to the exstensive research that i do before set up,i have kept marine and tropical fish for about 17 years before just recently given up and have decided on dart frogs as i have always been interested in them i have also kept reptiles and fire bellies for a number of years so not a complete newbie.i have done some research already but would like to have any info that would benefit me before setting up,my first criteria is to have a tank in living room that can be planted for a show tank will be about 35gal can be max of 40gal, width will be 23" height 21" could vary depending, depth 15" could also vary, species must be bold and be able to be kept in a group,and how many without possible fights i have decided on d.leucomelas as i am just starting.
i would appreciate any help to see if i am starting off in the right direction also could anyone recommend where i can get them from that is not too far away from the plymouth area in devon
hope someone can help, paul

I've always found dendroboard to be a great source of information for this.

    @sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
