Default Auratus(Campana or Microspot) or Vittatus?

I can't seem to make up my mind.

Which would you consider the boldest? Tank size isn't really an issue, as I have three empty tanks at the moment (a 29 gallon, an 18x18x18 exo and an 18x18x24 exo) I'm thinking the 29 would be best for all of the ones I'm deciding between.

I'm having such a hard time deciding.

I'm also considering tricolors in the back of my mind.

If only I could afford a small group of each right now :wink:

Auratus tend to be extremely shy, and I've heard the vittatus are very bold. But I've heard that tricolors are even bolder.

i have not personally dealt with auratus but i do have three vittatus which is supposedly a rather shy frog but mine are rather bold and i see them out quite often and compared to most auratus morphs i like them quite a bit more not to say there isnt some stunning auratus morphs out there and vittatus make excellent group frogs and in a 29 gallon you might be able to get away with 5 without any problems

If I had to make a choice I would go with the microspot also know as Panamanian Green & Bronze auratus. They are not as shy as everyone seems to insist they are and are very enjoyable.

All of our customers like them - just remember to get ones that you like the look of, not all of these guys breed true (you won't necessiarly get microspot offspring)
