Thanks!

The most current shot I have, this is around a month old have had a lot more growth since. This was actually my first viv, it's just been growing in whilst I waited for the perfect inhabitants. The pothos has been removed and I'm wating for some climbers to go up that left hand side.

This guy goes mad for Hydei. I alternate with crickets but he really does seem to prefer them.

Awesome frog and nice viv. Why not try B. Lateralis roaches as feeders? They don't stink like crickets, make no noise and are super easy to breed.

HunterB: This is pretty much full size, around 4.5 cm I think.

jwthought: I've never tried, he'll only eat at night anyway so it's difficult to monitor feeding accurately. Most of the time I can only check that the food is gone (tank is sealed for FF escapes) and he's pooping regularly, unless I stay up an hour or so after lights out.

Eos: I'm going to try some hatchling locusts, it looks like roaches may be too large (20mm minimum it seems), anything larger than size 2 crickets he won't take.

Cheers for the comments everyone.

Actually, he does! Have tried him on them a few times (i'd completely forgot) just have no cultures up and running right now.

Anyone find been beetles will produce in HUGE bursts and then slow down?

Is he WC or CB, because the colors are awesome. CB seem a little less colorful in the pictures I've seen. I am curious because I plan on getting some very soon.

Captive Bred. I'd never buy WC. Perhaps I'm just lucky and got a really colourful one, did take me months to find CB and it seems near impossible to locate females.

They're not active at any point in the day, unless you choose to feed them or catch them early morning, but they are quite happy to sleep out in the open. They look just like RETF when curled up asleep:

Morgan, at www.rainforestjunkys.com Mike sells these and other Monkey Frogs CB. He might be able to help you find a female. He does sometimes sell pairs. Again nice frog.

And they can live through the apocalypse... trust me, I had some in a container that was left outdoors and flooded, froze, melted and then snowed. When I went to finally dispose of it...they were still alive. Just a warning...

That is one nice Phyllomedusa viv!

Hydei and bean beetles huh? Thats cool. I don't think my P. vaillanti would go for such small food as smaller crickets are sometimes left alone.

Yeah, as stemcellular warned. I think I might stick with crickets and your other said feeders. (For me feeder roaches are illegal in Florida anyway.)

I hope you find a female.
