Hey, all. I’ve posted a few times about getting back into the hobby. Well, I finally bit the bullet but I’ve been posting on Facebook groups rather than here. I’ll be updating some info, adding Progression photos and once I can get stuff uploaded, show y’all how it came to be. But for now, here it is.

For a basic rundown- I constructed this over the course of about 3 weeks or so from start to tentative “finish”. Substrate is abg/reptisoil mix, about 50/50, hydroton drainage layer with in-tank capped off drain hole. Lighting is 2 oversized beamsworks EA FSPEC which I plan on upgrading as soon as I make a decision. Tank has been running like this now for a week plus with mistking, though I think I will be needing the quad nozzle, or to drill another hole. Seeded with springs for roughly two weeks and the population seems to be booming, and I’ve got powder blue and powder orange isopods in there that I never see. I plan to go a few more weeks to a month before adding any frogs, letting plants grow in and microfauna get the best foothold possible.

Still undecided on species, but I’m ultimately planning 4-5 thumbnails, imis, variabilis, or fants most likely.

Embedded the images so people on phones wouldn’t be as annoyed as I get trying to view thumbnails 😂

1.0.4 Ranitomeya imitator “intermedius”. Started calling just a week or two ago, but I suspect it to be 2 male, 3 female.

Have you used Tillandsia in your tanks before? I’m sure if I do they’ll rot. I suppose placing them in a mist shadow could do the trick?

Bummer. I was hoping that was just my own fears and hesitation. I’d love to make a vivarium presenting a T. bulbosa as the focal specimen.

Intermedius
https://www.joshsfrogs.com/ranitomey...ison-frog.html

Chazuta
https://www.joshsfrogs.com/ranitomey...-for-sale.html

If I'm not mistaken, (and I probably am) they are very similar. The chazuta lives at the base or lowlands of the mountains in Peru, the intermedius lives just a bit farther up the mountain.

here is another link (in German, use google translate) regarding the imitator species

You likely have! I post on poison dart froggers relatively often, ori at least was during the tanks setup.

From my understanding, the chazuta is likely just a site-specific intermedius. Which *used* to be its own subspecies, but is now considered just an imi morph, the name has just stuck. They tend to have a more widespread blue/greenish hue to their back legs. But for hobby/differentiation they’ll be called intermedius and chazuta still.

You are right about Tillandsia being inclined to rot in normal vivarium conditions. Where I have had success with them is right at the top of the back where I tend to have vents. In fact, they are sometimes the only thing that will grow up there because it is so dry. It's a good niche for them. I have no idea how you would get them to grow as a focal specimen in the middle of a tank where they get misted a lot.

That picture with the three frogs all in the same neoregelia is too cute. Perfect time to take a photo.

I wondered the same thing. I have limited experience with Tillandsias. I purchased some from an artist who had glued them to gilded oyster shells, with the purpose of using them to hold business cards. I had them out in the open and I thought I was misting them not too often, and they still rotted!

I've been able to keep Tillandsias in two of my tanks. Mid way up or higher, on wood or the background. They get misted but seems as long as any water dries fairly quickly, they seem to do fine. I tried them in my latest build and they rotted immediately though. I think air circulation is the key with them. I've never had any success with the ones people give around the holidays in the little glass ornaments. They seem to rot in those also.
