Robert H I have an artificial foam rock ledge that sticks to the glass of a frog enclosure with magnets. Looks very real. Free to anyone who wants it! I hope you will listen in to this show, it looks to be our biggest drawing show to date.

Here is a photo of one of the vivariums by John Clare, our guest speaker:

This is true In NZ, Oz, Brazil, Florida, Texas, CA, China, Borneo, Suliwasi, India, Africa. Spring water is extremely stable and rich in CO2.

Crispino L Ramos It was interesting to hear his observation about southern India. The entire densely populated southern part of the country didn't have a major impact on aquatic plant diversity because there were not a lot of waste dumped into the rivers. There were no factories or large industries dumping toxic waste into the rivers. I can see from the pictures in this link that the water in the rivers are clear, interesting plants like Fissidens, Eriocaulon and Microsorum grow well.

Robert H well we had surprises of the BAD kind...

We had some technical problems in the beginning, which I exasperated, blogtalkradios phone lines went down for the first ten or 15 minutes of the show, but once we got Claus on the line it was fine from then on. The show is up in the archives for anyone who wants to listen to it, with the first ten minutes edited out.
