About this deal
In fact, of late I have been discussing with a few people how regular substrate changes (akin to water changes in aquaria) may be of benefit in maintaining a suitable system. AJ Kelly: It was a challenge to think of a naturalistic and practical way to mix the two that wasn't going to be a pain in the butt later. Our commitment to promoting a message and delivering satisfaction extends to our Corporate Partnerships as well.
Sounds easy, but I'm using it for my land and planting area so it takes a bit of work to remove and I'd rather not except maybe every month or so.There wasn't much land for him (only a 2 inch strip along the back, and a 3 inch strip on one side), so I built a custom lid for the aquarium that resembles a rock overhang you might see along a creek or river.
Because of the nitrogen cycle your filter breaks down ammonia and turns it into nitrites and then nitrates. Once the models are complete, the team plans to send them to zoos and aquariums to help identify the components on a species level. In the past, keepers were also generally experienced frog or day gecko keepers who kept on top of their maintenance properly. I don't know much about how to help, sorry, but I was just peeking through some forums and your enclosure is so lovely!

They won’t get rid of the nitrate but they might break down the waste so it’s easier for your filter to handle, they are would probably become snacks to most fish though. By connecting Zoo Miami to small and large foundation gifts, we are able to become innovators in our industry, establish thoughtful and impactful programs and most importantly – sustain great work once it’s been accomplished. So hopefully I can move to a more natural filtration system in the future, at least in part, because replicating his natural environment is really important to me.
Don’t forget to visit the Conservation Action Center, a new indoor interactive exhibit where you can crawl through a python to learn about invasive species, whack out environmental threats in “Habitat Whack A Mole,” or race to scoop the “poop” in a composting game. The mummy was purchased in Japan by an American naval officer who donated it to the Clark County Historical Society in Springfield, Ohio, in 1906. However, I'm not sure how much filtration I can actually obtain by using the aquatic substrate, underwater features, and plants so we'll see. Something else I found are freshwater scuds, they seem like the aquatic version of isopods they might eat the dragon waste.If the substrate isnt bioactive, you spot clean and maybe replace/refresh couple of times a year or cycle the substrate and replace in batches. It's not something I do myself at the moment, but came about from discussions with Mary and PALS who is trying to study what is coming out of the other end of the cleaner bugs. I am not familiar with any sprays on the market deemed safe for reptiles for this sort of thing, but spot cleaning I just simply replace the substrate as and when. I have an Indian Star Tortoise setup that has been running for almost 6 years without much of a substrate change. It came up a bit short since I wanted a minimum of 6ft of climbing height for him, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a more enriching swimming area for him (at the design stage of the build my first draft had a much smaller aquatic section).
