I agree with PMB's concerns. The lighting intensity issue would be easy to troubleshoot -- temporarily put something translucent under your current lighting, or raise the fixture. If your plants have doubled in size in one month, it sounds like enough light to make frogs very uncomfortable.
Another issue might be the spectrum of that lamp --it is blue-shifted, and claims to emit a lot of UVA. Darts do avoid UV (UVB? UVA? I don't know for certain), and could be hiding more for that reason.
Even under optimal conditions, amazonica should be expected to be more shy than not.
Thanks for the reply!
Species* sorry aha!
Here's my set up inside the Viv https://www.dropbox.com/s/2i9z4lhva8..._0073.jpg?dl=0
There's plenty of hiding spaces for them and lots of leaf litter. There's a small purpose made hide at the lower left of the Viv for them too.
Il try that, il put something translucent under the light and see if that has any effect.
Is there any bulbs you would reccomend as an alternative?
