Great color are you giving him any extra supplements? I have one pair that is that bright and another that is not as bright. Great frogs, and just a wild call.

Good pic as well... :-)

I supplement with NatuRose. Most of the collection gets it 2x/week, although I stopped giving it to my terribilis as it turned my yellow terribs, temporarily orange. :-)

the offspring show interesting pattern variability and I wonder if anyone else has seen this. I will try and get some pics of this.

Some of the froglets are almost solid yellow on the back, others spotted like this male and yet others still fully black.

Seen this?

Yours breeding yet Kyle?

Shawn

Oh ya they are breeding like rabbits, but I have not had any luck with the tads yet. I am hoping to have better luck with the recent tads, but we will see. I just ordered some NatuRose so I plan to start most of my collection on it.

I have had better luck in communal tanks...lots of almond leaves, tad bites, tetra crisps

the first 10 had SLS...then the next dozen were all perfect...now 70+ tads in the water.

Shawn,

Can you tell us a little about these guys?
Adult size?
Feeding?
Relative boldness?
Also, what is your setup like?
Got any pictures of the viv?

Wow, they certainly have gotten more colorful and bolder since I last saw them. Very nice colors.

Mine are rather bold, and are normally out. The pair I have in the living room can be skittish, but the tank has not grown in either.

I'm not Shawn, but I also work with bassleri and so will try and answer your questions. Granted, I own the the orange (not black) bassleri, but from all I've heard (and seen) they're very similar.

Adult size is a little bigger than a leuc, like a smallish azureus. Feeding is like any big epip; they'll take normal melo FF's, but seem to prefer hydei and crickets. Big crickets, even. They're fairly bold, but a little skittish. I don't know what Shawn's tank looks like, but a construction journal of my 60 gal bass tank can be found here

Hope that helps, and sorry if I stole your thunder Shawn.

-Solly
