Default Film Canister

Does it matter if you use a black film canister or a clear film canister for Ranitomeya?

Different ones seem to prefer different colors. Some of mine will lay in black, others will deposit in white :-) There is also sometimes a different preference for orientation, too. Some like vertical, horizontal, or diagonal. There are clues to this in the stickies for the different species on this board.

Do you put any water in your film canisters for Ranitomeya? If you do, how much water?

If we are talking for a laying site, I put a little bit of water in the bottom when I manually mist. Just to kind of keep it wet in there. If it's a deposition site, I will keep about half of the canister full.

Yes, I am talking about how much water for egg laying.

Depending on what species you are taking about.

For example imitators I keep them horizontal with no water but for variabilis I keep them tilted at 45 degrees filled with water.
