I'm also among the lucky who picked up some new frogs from Understory recently. As the title says, I got four Galactonotus 'Orange'. They came in in good shape and went straight into their freshly set up 20 gallon QT tank.
Here is a pic of the tank:
It's a simple set up - the base is hydroton (about an inch) followed by landscape fabric. Then Ross' soil mix (about 3"), then leaf litter (oak and crushed magnolia). I also threw in three plant cuttings: creeping fig, watermelon peperomia and good old fashioned philodendron. To top it off and make things extra comfy, I seeded it with springtails and strategically placed some pieces of cork bark to make some hides.
Three of the four frogs are doing very well. The fourth I would say is doing...pretty well. He/she is quite a bit smaller than the others and not nearly as vigorous. I have seen it eat frequently, but it doesn't venture too far. Just in case I see it getting thin, I have set up a 24 oz deli container with some moss and a piece of fern so I can isolate the little dude/dudette and make sure it's eating enough.
Enough chit chat, here are the new frogs!
This is the little guy - nice colour on him:
This photo shows the size difference between the smaller frog and the other three. Also, this is the best shot of the frog I'm calling 'Wedge' based on the darker orange wedge it has down it's back:
Wedge on the left, Yellow in the middle and Tiny on the right:
Here is the most yellow frog of the bunch, some nice meat on this one already:
And last but not least, the best photo I could get of the last frog in the crew - Bo. I'm calling it Bo because it has a spot of orange on it's elbows.
The frogs will be in this QT tank for a month or so before they move into the new 18" Exo.
What does everyone think? Comments are welcome!
