Rick wrote:and so you should be (good spotting though)! Yes two females in a viv approximately 8ft long giving sufficient room for them to each have a good home base, plus I have spare vivs and would have moved one at the first sign of aggression. Whilst we're confessing our sins I also bring up babies on sand after the first couple of weeks - it's a fine layer about one granule thick, but it gives them a bit of traction when chasing crix and also helps in cleaning the three times daily poos! I know what I preach and will continue to say - however when you've been around them long enough you do gain the confidence and additional knowledge to go outside the box at times. I'd still never place two dragons in a 4ft viv and for someone breeding for the first few years a clean base or paper is still the way to go. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not to nit pick Rick but iam sure you are not supposed to start a paragraph with the word `and` , and even if you can it should atleast have a capital letter :mrgreen: 8)

I dont know why iam drawn to making Rick have ago at me??..... :D

This was written in the conversational mode although I should probably have commenced with '.... and etc.', thus appearing light-hearted in its approach to your comments.

It does seem that you have some sort of suicidal tendency going at the moment especially considering the following points.

Not to nit pick Rick but iam (I am) sure you are not supposed to start a paragraph with the word `and` (no space required between the inverted comma and the apostrophe), and even if you can *(incorrect use of can, the word should be 'may') it should atleast (two words not one) have a capital letter (where's the full stop?)

I dont know why iam (I am) drawn to making Rick have ago (two words) at me??..... (The second question mark and additional full stops are quite in order as they are being used for emphasis.)


*I do note that substituting 'can' for 'may' occurs quite commonly in the English language, however that is no excuse for its misuse when correcting another person's grammar.

You do realise that you may have set me off again, in which case I'll probably haunt you (or maybe some other lucky person) for some time now.

Trish - she made me do it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May - permissive.
Can - ability to.

Now try and construct a simple sentence using both 'affect' and 'effect' correctly (without resorting to Google).

Rick :lol:

Affect , `i love the affect those disco lights make`
Sorry should be 'effect'.
Effect , If i fall over and hurt my leg iam effected emotionally by it
This also is incorrect and should be affect.

Simplified it goes like this, affected BY, effect ON, so the disco lights made a nice effect on the wall and you were affected by the hurt leg.

Try this. The effect of an action is to affect you in some way.

Excuses are not acceptable, I have completed these last few posts during breakfast and BEFORE I've even finished my first coffee!

Having now scared most people into vetting their posts a dozen times before submitting I should probably leave the subject alone until the next challenge. :lol:

I was so close :D but yet so far :( ...normally iam very stubborn and will dig my heels in but i think in this case it is best to bail out with little bit of dignity i have left and never ever try and go against you again :D:D (until next time that is )

No worries it was fun, remember I was schooled in a system that still allowed the cane, arbitrary detention and well aimed blackboard rubbers. All very effective in teaching these little things :shock:

wow you're set up looks lovely rick, all i have in mine at the moment is logs and a hide unfortunately, will be adding a back wall and a decent substrate with sand stone and a few other things once i have a built another 4ft viv
think i will put the sand stone buried under play sand with just 2 inchs sticking out to make it look as good as i can, does anyone know any plants that can deal with the heat of a viv but can be munched on by the dragons with out causing harm

Plants tend to be a waste of time as for some reason dragons love roosting in them and tend to trash them well before the heat kills your plant. For a bit of realism some dry grass tufts with sandstone rocks and sand are pretty effective, otherwise artificial is the way to go.
