Default Young e. anthonyi vocalizing?

I have 4 in a viv that I believe are somewhere in the 5 to 6 month old range, and I'll get an occasional "chip..chip..chip..chip..chip.." sound from at least one of the frogs. It doesn't sound at all like the calls I've heard on YouTube, but there is somewhat of a pecking order in the tank. Is it possible that it's just a 'rank' related call? Or a young male on his way to manhood.

I finally got mine, and I can assure you both of these things are correct.

They're simply communicating with each other. Based on their favorite locations in the tank I have already determined who is who.

One likes to find the highest part of the tank and go to it, but he's generally quiet.

There's one that takes place on a landing, and he's the aggressive caller. When I spray, I'll generally feed them shortly after. So what he does, is once I spray, he'll call the others, letting them know that food is coming. By the time I dust and sprinkle my FF's they're all in range and ready to eat.

I have a very submissive one in the group too, if he/she doesn't come to the group to eat I generally sprinkle a few FF's by them (75G, its got a lot of length to it) and they
eat too then.

There's very much a pecking order, or, in my case, the General. But they aren't like my FBT's, I have 2 of those and one is just plain a jerk, and never leaves the other one alone, even both appear to be males at this point, but when feeding comes, dominates him, when the sub wants to sit in the water and he wants in, bam, jumps on his back and pushes him around.

I'm thinking of getting 1-2 more to even out the aggressive nature on that one.

I've found that moving things around a bit messes with the pecking order also. I had to move a seagrape leaf that the most dominant controlled, now he seems to just blend in with the others.

Well, now one has just started calling. It's kind of strange because I cut back on the misting over the past week. Maybe just the change has brought it out. Or, it could be that my anthurium has just grown 2 more giant leaves.
