unsure about contamination? Help please (WITH PICS)
    #11305653 - 10/23/09 01:38 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

So I am frog sitting for a friend and know nothing about frogs, so please bear with me,
but I think that the terrarium has a green mold contamination problem. It is definitely green (in some places,  others it looks like bruising) but someone told me to do the q-tip test, and I did and I'm not really sure because the q-tip didn't  have like a green smudge on it (which is what i thought is supposed to happen) but there were little green balls stuck to it. Can anyone tell me what this means?

and if it is green mold what should I do? there are plants thriving very close to it and I don't want to lose them, but I don't want to contaminate other areas of the terrarium either.

Thankyou

The kind of frogs that fuck you up if you lick them. :smile: sorry i don't know how this works or what I'm supposed to say

here's some pics

Keep fruiting. The sub does look a little "off" but you are growing frogs so I'd harvest what I could get. Won't hurt ya. :thumbup:

Your frogs are dry and need a good dunking. That's not contamination, it's bruising.

Or it's wicked bad contamination, and dunking will be like throwing gasoline on a fire.

But I think it's too dry.
