Wow, the vent's legs are really blue in those pics, very nice. They look a lot like my Iquitos red-orange vents. Good luck with the blue jeans.

Dude nice frog room. You might try " Goof Off " (just use a tiny bit on a rag) to remove the sticker resin from the glass.

Great pictures, very nice frogs. I gotta say, my favorites are the southern variabilis and the retics, with the blue jeans coming in a close third, but I wish I had any of them. Did you get any eggs after that picture of the variabilis?

That's awesome. I've been thinking about some southern variabilis for awhile, but these pics completely convinced me. As soon as I get money (just built a new rack.) Keep up the breeding with them. How about your stunning retics, any eggs from them?

nope still waiting on retics. i originally put what looked like a 1.1 in the tank but i havent heard calling and the supposed female is a little skinnier now. its hard to tell what that means, the supposed female could be a stressed male. not sure, they act like a 1.1 around eachother and no fighting yet. they are WAY more bold than i expected them to be though!

Well good luck with them too. I will be getting some retics eventually, maybe after the vanzos and southern variabilis. They look like such a stunning frog.

Great pics, love the Retic...Your camera really seems to make all the frog's colors pop. Or maybe its just your skill...but what are you using?

Actually If you got shots that were good off a Nikon it must be skill!!! OOH score one for the Canon people! Actually I'm in neither camp, or any camp at all there are great cameras made by most of the major players....but that was to good to pass up
