Default My first frogs!!

I got my frogs, Orange Galacts, on Thursday (from Sean Stewart). I had to wait a couple of weeks for the weather to cool off just enough so that they could be shipped, but better to wait than end up with dead frogs.

Sorry for the bad pictures but I didn't want to chance them getting out of their temp container so I left it closed when I took the pics.

Their temp home is a 12 liter sterilite with a couple of nut pods, a coco hut, leaf letter and a couple of plant clippings. They will stay in there until I get fecals done.

I want to thank the members of this board for all the information they so willing give. I didn't ask a lot of questions but I did get a lot of use out of the search function.


Doug





And a picture of their future home. It's a 24" cube. The plants have grown in a little in the last month and I have added a couple more but you get the idea. Leaf litter, I added lots of leaf litter.

I got 4 so hopefully I will end up with some breeding and of course I will offer them to folks on the board first.

They have been eating like a bunch of little pigs so far. So all is good at the moment.

Yes I did. All I had to buy was the glass. I had all the wood left over from other projects.

Here is a link to the build thread.

And here are a few pics of the tank now.

Yes, Sean Stewart (Herpetologic) shipped them overnight. They were dropped off at the shipping depot around 8pm and I received them at about 11:30 the next morning. They of course were packed in a cooler with some Phase 22 packs. The inside temp of the box when I opened it was about 78F.

They are now out of the Temp tank in in their permanent home.









I have a video to post too but I haven't figured out how to do it yet.

I used those same cork tiles in one of my last vivs. Where'd you get them. I thought they had a weird chemically smell and I worried about them at first but it's made a great background for my gold bicolors. Nice looking Galacts

I think I got them at Ace hardware. I have used them in the past for other things and thought they would work well for the background. My thinking was :Why go to the effort of making a great looking background when it's just going to get covered with plants anyway?

(K.I.S.S.) or Keep It Simple Stupid is a motto I follow.

I love my galacts they are all over the tank and they sure are fun to watch.

Sweet tank! Galactonotus are gorgeous dart frogs......your orange ones appear to be pretty bold so far, would you say? I'm only familiar with the red ones, whom are fairly shy....

Anyhow, awesome job---Sean Stewart has some great frogs......welcome to the addiction

I would say that they are very bold so far but they are still settling in so time will tell. They really hunt aggressively and are all over the tank. I find myself wiping off the glass just so I can get a better view
