Default Retic photos updated 3/15/07

Hey everyone,

I managed to get a hold of some from SNDF last week. I believe I have a 2.1 and found some eggs today. Here are some photos of the retics and their home.









Hope you like

Sherwin

Nice frogs.

Are the larger broms Ritzy Red and a Wee Willie?

I see all three all the time. They have become one of my favorite frogs. If you dont have these in your collection you should give them a try.

that's exactly what i was going to ask. i wonder if they'll stay that bold. whenever i buy new frogs they're all over the place looking around, but after a while they mellow out. they're definately beautiful frogs.

Great little frogs, but a vertical tank may not be the best for them. Retics are mostly terrestrial frogs. I have seen some aggression in the past in smaller vertical tanks. You have a bit of leaf litter which is good just keep an eye out for any fighting or weight loss.

Chris, the largest brom is Neo. Red Bird x Fireball, the other is Neo. Wee Willy.

Sherwin, the frogs are awesome. I really want to get some of these so bad.

Kyle,

I have not seen any aggression but i'll make sure to keep an eye out. The two in the first photo are the breeding pair. The other just seems to be doing its own thing ever since I put all three in the tank. I think its a little younger and I have not heard any calling maybe im wrong and its a female. Do you know what ratio works best for them?

Antone,

They are beautiful frogs. I think you would appreciate their boldness. Thanks for the Red Bird x Fireball. Thats were they laid the eggs.

I kept my trio in a vert 10 for a bit of time - and then upgraded them to a vert 15H - still offering the height - but giving them more floor space. They still utilize every inch of the tank. If you can Sherwin - I would give the trio a larger tank - or if you are sure about the pair breeding, remove the outcast.

What Kyle notes about agression is particularly important - especially with the chance that you might have multiple males. I have a 1.2 - and they all get along swimmingly. Both females lay and I have never encountered any aggression in the year and a half that I have had them - but all of the problems I have heard come from multiple males.

Leaf litter is particularly important for these frogs (although I think it is important for all of them). They will spend a lot of time down on the bottom of the tank, and having the leaf litter really increases the relative surface area for them to explore - not to mention a nice hiding space for all of the springtails and what not for them to munch on.

Nburns,

Thanks. They laid in the brom in the first photo.

OZ,

The frogs are kept in a 18 gallon tank. Im hoping that it would be efficient space for all three. The leaf litter seems to be doing its job. By the way, the variabilis i got from you are awesome. I see those little buggers all the time. They got big pretty fast

Retics were what got me interested in darts.
They are so cool!

Jmcc000,

I believe Marcus is going to have another shipment in six weeks or so. Give him a call it might be sooner.

Anoleo2,

When I first started I didnt like retics at all. I guess by seeing more photos the little guys grew on me.

Update: They laid about a dozen more eggs since my last post. Here is a photo of what i came home to today. The back three have been there for a week and the top 4 was laid today. What does everyone do with the bad eggs?

Can't tell from the pic, but if you say they are bad then you need to get em out or they will mold and will possibly spread to the newer eggs. Use something small and just drag them out, but don't leave em.

They all look bad as far as i can tell. I better picture would help.
If i were you i would pull the eggs and put them in a petri dish with a bit of methelyne blue and paper towel. I use a plastic spoon to get them out of film cans.
