Nice... I hope I get that from my Rio Saladillos soon.

What is the typical behavior of yours and how do you house them? Mine seem very skittish. I'm wondering if it is viv conditions or something else.

Nice, always good to see them transporting. I need to add these to my anthonyi collection.

My rio's compared to santa isabel are a little more skittish, but I see them constantly. The SI's don't move when I open there tank, Rio's do, that is basically the extent of them being skittish.

Both my male and female have transported tads at the same time, unlike my SI's (only male). There call is a little quieter and shorter than my SI's too. Could all be specific to my observations, let's see what others say.

Oh, my offspring are also darker in coloration on the rio's than the SI's (which are a lighter brown initially).

My housing is a 20 horizontal. Sphagnum bottom and overgrown with philodendron. No misting, just higher humidity. I do not pull eggs, just let them transport. They lay eggs on the philo leaves. I have no film canisters with them. The tadpoles do not take very long to morph out, and from my experience they are good swimmers right from the start.

My SI's are in a 20 vert that they came with. They have laid all but one clutch on bromeliad leaves. The other clutch was in a film canister. There is a coco hut in there, but that will be removed as I have not seen them use it. Also, need to redo tank for a better false bottom and bulkhead. But besides removing coco hut, only other change will be a misting nozzle just because.

My group is visible most of the time; I'll second what was said about being skittish when opening the tank but otherwise they are almost always out and about, esp. on the large philodendron leaves. A really nice population of E. anthonyi, in my opinion.

Their background color matches the color of my leaf litter. It's hilarious - you won't even realize you are LOOKING at one till it moves a little bit.
