Excessive Algae on the front glass

Excessive algae on the front glass can be unsightly and take away from your enjoyment of the wonderful animals you bright into your life. Luckily for all of us, glass is really easy to clean.

Algae loves to grow in dart frog vivariums because it is humid and has great lighting that we intend for our lush plants but algae has no problems highjacking these conditions and can turn into excessive algae if left unchecked.

Step one: Get a Josh's Frogs Terrarium Cleaning Sponge. No joke, we use them right here in our facility in just about every enclosure and they work fantastic! First, we wet with R/O or distilled water, then gently remove the easy-to-clean debris, rinsing your sponge out frequently. Then go over the algae again, this time scrubbing a little harder to get the stuck on stuff. 

These sponges are meant to slowly break apart as you clean—that's what gives them the awesome cleaning power they are known for. They're completely safe for use with animals, and they don't contain any cleaning chemicals.

Using a terrarium cleaning sponge every month during your vivarium check & maintenance is a great way to ensure that algae is a problem of the past. You'll never miss any action in your vivarium again due to dirty glass, and all it takes is a few simple swipes with the Josh's Frogs Terrarium Sponge!
