Just a heads up, N.A. pitchers and venus flytraps require dormant, cold periods. You should check out the tropical Nepenthes species for some really nice looking pitchers that can take the constant...

You could do carnivorous plants, yes. But you'd need to stick with tropicals. Venus flytraps and North American pitchers require periods of dormancy, meaning you couldn't house them in the tropical...

I like the T-5's for vivs. They're nice and bright, and I've gotten good growth with them. I've used the cheap Coralife double bulb T-5's for planted aquariums and they work great.

I'm sorry for your losses, it's extremely frustrating putting so much time, effort, and money into something to see it crash like this. I second Tame, parasitic infection seems unlikely. It really...

It seems the Atlanta botanical garden mix is a staple, and people just sort of take it and make it their own. Their mix is as follows:

It is. Very pretty plant.

But as far as the viv world goes, orchid barks always seem to be the staple of most mixes. I think the longes I've had a single viv running before being torn down for...

Let me start by saying I looove threadfins (I like P. furcata a bit more, but the threadfins are really cool).

As far as soils, my mixes usually are made up mostly of the orchid bark mix (fir wood...

A 12x12x18 gives you a small footprint, so if you want to do darts, you'd probably need to go with a smaller species that is more aboreal. For your best choice, I'd second some small species of...

Just keep an eye on that grapevine. It's a very soft wood, and has a tendency to mold/break down in really wet environments. But I agree, good looking setup.

Unfortunately I feel just the opposite. Floor space doesn't matter with a water feature, it's all height. A 40-breeder is only like 16 inches high. Now take at least 6 inches of that (probably...

A pup from a standard neo 'fireball' goes for around $3-4 as far as I've seen. But they've produced so many cultivars, and the prices of those range from a couple bucks to upwards of $20-30+.
