Well my viv simply rocks now, blooms are comming everywhere. Sadly there's one thing eating them too fast... Snails... those fellows keep sure, that new growth is under control. Not for long, yesterday I put there ferramol, which should erase the problem.
Here is some photos,
Snails are hard to kill with CO2. First eggs don't need O2, second, small ones need really little, third those just don't die with it.
Ferramol, is a great product. It is great for plants, because the key ingredient is iron fosfate. So it actually works as a fertilizer after bacteria digest it. Second it is really powerful snail killer. Third it is completely healthy for my poison frogs and for human.
Wow, very nice tank. The CO2 will kill the snails and slugs. True it won't kill the eggs, that's why the CO2 treatment will need to be repeated. It will work trust me, it did for me. Don't skimp on dry ice, make sure you overflow the tank with it, then top it off an hr later...You'll need to move the frogs into another tank of course I wouldn't trust any substances with frogs around, they're just too delicate
Ferramol, is actually a product of nature. Certain plants produce these iron phosphates to protect their leaves. In these pills, there's also some snail yummy food to get them interested.
First froggs don't eat these, because their not moving and certanly noy protein. And if they ate, there's only 10 grams of iron phosphate in 1kg also 1%. so it should not be too much, because iron phosphates dillutes really poorly.
I still wouldn't use it around my frogs. Just because it's natural does not make it safe...afterall arsenic and cyanide are also naturally occurring. Yes, I'm very ignorant when it comes to my frog tanks
I know frogs are extremely sensitive so I adopted zero tolerance policy myself (personal preference). Even if the frog survives, it may stop or no longer breed for you or the occurrence of SLS may increase in the offspring. If you use it and if it works and you can still breed your frogs successfully be sure to post back. I'm curious.
