My new Frog
 
She looks just like Sam (short for Samuel), my dart frog (if you remember I got Samuel back during the summer months), but its a she, and Sam is a he. So hopefully there will be baby Sammies soon. Her name is Sam too, short for Samantha.

So here is Samuel:

pigface 01-10-2007 12:03 AM

Awesome pums , I really like the spotting on the new one . I'm going to have to get some bastis when I get some more room .

arrow-frog-fan 01-10-2007 12:04 AM

Nice Pum's! I hope to have some pumilios sometime myself.

Ooh, what a gorgeous addition! Congrats, Cesar! Hope you have more pics soon.

Grassypeak 01-10-2007 01:07 AM

Someone needs a nice water holding Neo. :P

tyler 01-10-2007 01:07 AM

Nice addition, best of luck. I really like the fine spotting on most bastis. Mine look like a more typical colon.

Khamul 01-10-2007 02:42 PM

Well, this is basically what the tank look like. It's got 4 broms at the very top of the viv, one mid way, and 3 near the bottom. Is this enough or should I add more?

ITs the one on the right side in this picture:

Its a bit more grown in than this, but basically the same:

The viv looks really nice Cesar. Most of the pum breeding setups that Iíve seen have one or more large water holding broms though. The brom on the bottom right, which appears to be the largest, is smaller than what Iíve seen in other pum setups. Iím no expert though. Perhaps, if the one on the bottom holds enough water, your pums will be able to raise their tads.

Khamul 01-10-2007 07:20 PM

They need to be bigger!!! Oh man. I had no idea. THe frogs fit nicely into the cups. Does that count?

Grassypeak 01-10-2007 07:45 PM

Again, Iím no expert, but in order for the broms to properly support tadpoles, I would assume that they have to hold a good bit of water. Most of the pictures of pum tads that I have seen, have been of tads in the leaf wells, not the center cup. It looks like you have plenty of room to replace that large brom in the bottom with a bigger one if it turns out to be necessary. See what the pum guys have to say. Iím just going by what Iíve seen before. The viv does really look nice the way it is though. Do you know what that bottom Neo. is? Maybe it will still grow a bit.

c'est ma 01-10-2007 08:03 PM

Yeah, let's hear from the pum guys...are y'all listening?...

Cesar, my MC's have studiously ignored several handy film canisters and are trying to raise a tad in an N. pimienta, which I have heard (from a "pum guy") is way too small...

But they were an already breeding pair when I got them, and I'm wondering if they might have been "imprinted" on broms...my intermedius, which I raised from froglets, took right to the film canisters...

Your pums might, too...

rozdaboff 01-10-2007 09:02 PM

Chris is right - usually my pumilio prefer to use the leaf axils - not the center cup, although I did have a pair of Bastis raise a tad in a center axil.

You may want to add a couple of larger broms perhaps on the left side to even out the number of tad deposition spots on both sides- but honestly, I think that those larger broms on the right would serve as acceptable tad-rearing sites. Just make sure to keep the broms filled with water, and change the water 1-2x a week (or more) when you suspect breeding - although they may start without you knowing.

That's good to hear.

I love the names! Sam and Sam are gonna make a great couple! :lol:

pigface 01-11-2007 01:52 AM

I think I would add a few more broms in there if it was mine , but I like alot of broms in my vivs . Maybe a couple bigger ones one twords the bottom and one in the middle . You could even mount one on the stick the orchid on the right is mounted on , that is if it dosen't effect the light that the orchid needs . Try to have them oriented rightside up more than slanted so they hold more water . You should try to find ones with long stolons so you can mount and position them easier . Just poke a hole in the background or drill a hole in the wood and stick it in . Something that grows short and wide like the ones on the bottom of your viv rather than tall and skinny like the ones on the top . They are 29 gals if I remember right ? I have at least ten broms in my 20 h's , one has fifteen in it . It looks like you have enough room for three or four more broms in there . Also maybe throw in a few film cannisters , they may or may not use them but its better to have to many depositing spots than too few . I've even had mine lay eggs in one once.

Khamul 01-11-2007 02:07 PM

Thanks guys! I suppose I'll be pm's Antone soon enough. hehe.
I would have more room if I didn't have a pond. But the pond is the only way for me control the water level. I think I'll ditch the useless cave, or bury it completely.
How about a Vreissea hybrid? Are those good enough? I have one at home that has thrown out alot of pups. Will it rot if I place it in the soil?
Thanks.

Thanks for posting picks of your Platystele stenostachya. I just ordered one today from Andy's Orchids.
