Default Phyllobates aurotaenia grow out

I recently acquired three aurotaenia froglets and 4 tadpoles. The froglets are in a 10 gallon grow out tank with plenty of leaf litter and visual barriers. I threw this together with things that I already had in my aquarium/vivarium storage closet. The false bottom is half of a bag of flourite topped with plastic window screen. Next is a thin layer of sphagnum moss covered with a 1 gallon zip lock bag of NEherp's ABG that is sloped from the back corner to the front corner. On top of that there is a ceramic fish cave in the back and 3 pieces of driftwood. I covered the exposed ABG with a mixture of mostly oak leaves that I collected locally, boiled, and then dried and stored dry. It is planted with cuttings from a few house plants that I have been growing. It was seeded with dwarf white isopods and tropical springtails while being put together and is still going through its moldy phase. The leaf litter and driftwood provides plenty of hiding and hunting areas for the froglets so at least two of the three are always visible. They will eventually be moved to a larger, less simplistic vivarium, but it goes to show that a nice looking, functional vivarium doesn't have to break the bank to get the job done.

The biggest one is the boldest. He has dreams of climbing the rex begonias growing out in the next tank over. I've tried multiple times to block his view but he never gives up.

I use an Omega One brand flake fish food that uses whole fish rather than byproducts and has as few fillers as I could find. I also pre kill a fruit fly or two every other day and drop them in the water. I never see the tadpoles eat them but they do disappear by the next day.

The froglets are being fed wingless melanogaster. The largest froglet still wants into the next tank.

Best frogs I ever had. Wish I'd never parted ways.
