Default Iquitos Vents

I would like to hear from folks that are breeding and keeping these frogs. My 4.2 group in my 60 gallon tank is doing great. The group has split into two pairs and two rouge males. The pairs have established themselves at opposite ends of the tank, while the lone males travel the tank calling and causing trouble (great fun to watch). I am wondering what type of sex split I can expect from the breeding I have been seeing, and at what population densities everyone is keeping their frogs.

Sorry for the delayed reply - I missed this one.

I keep my Iquitos Vents in 1.2 trios. They have bred well for me. Sometimes spotty - but when they get going, they can produce a lot of eggs.
My clutches have seemed to run female heavy - as observed from holdbacks as well as people who I sold froglets to that have now raised them to adults.

If it were me, I would try and pull a couple of the extra males from the tank - and add a female or two. This should get you more breeding, and yet still have the male-male competition within the tank.

Do you find that having multiple males makes your frogs more visible?

I spent some time cleaning glass this weekend, (apparently I do do windows :shock: ) Here is the tank were my vents reside. I have seen a lot of wrestling lately, but the tank is so big I don't know that I should be worried. Anytime one of them gets pushed out of the leaf cup trying to spread their genetic information where it isn't wanted, I just I tell them to go sit in the corner and COOL OUT!

I've got a 2.2.2 that I just recently moved into a 60 gallon corner tank. About 2 weeks prior to the move one of the males began calling. Since then I have heard nothing. I just realized the lighting may be insufficient but will be setting up a brighter light today.

For those of you that have had breeding success, have you found better success with black or white canisters?

Mine really don't seem to care. I have eggs laid and tadpoles deposited in both.
