Default Azureus Boldness Question

I've had my 3 azureus now for about 1.5 mos and they are about 5-6 mos old. They are in a 18" exo cube. I read and was told that they are very bold frogs, but I do not see them out in the open an awful lot.

My viv is between 70-72 during the day and usually stays consistent around 80% humidity.

There is a solid amount of leaf litter and several of the plantings are coming in thick so they have lots of good places to hide. I am not saying that they never come out, it is just infrequent and when they do they do not stay out for very long (a minute or so).

My big concern is that they are on my desk and I am worried that the typing, mousing, screen, incidental desk bumps etc are causing enough vibrations for them to be concerned and hide more often.

Am I over analyzing or are they just young and will grow into more boldness in the future. Or should I get a stand and move them.

Thanks for some thoughts.

That's a definite possibility. If I accidentally bump a steel rack my froglets will freak and run for cover. Moving tanks, they do the same.

I wouldnt worry...they should get more bold as they mature. They should also become used to their surroundings and the typing, etc shouldn't be an issue.

Just give them time.

This is what I was thinking/hoping. I'm usually only at the desk an hour or two each day as well.

I had 10 tanks with, azureus, leucs, auratus, different tincs, imitators, all in my kids playroom. they were there for years. You could go to any tank and see the frogs out living life. The Azureus would be right out by the glass, when they were courting, (calling and back rubbing). I believe its just a case of getting used to the surroundings.
