Default E .trivittatus tank

These are photos of my Epipedobates trivittatus tank (2 frogs that I seldom see). Dims. 4' wide x 3' high and 18" deep. Background is great stuff, silicone and peat. It has a drip wall and misting system.

Caught one long enough to photo before it went into hiding.

Are they shy frogs or is it just so well planted it's hard to catch them?

Both. I have only seen both of them near each other once in the recent past. I go days in between wondering are they still alive before I spot one again. There are a lot of nooks in the background for them to hide along with all the plants. They were supposed to be a pair but I haven't heard any calling.

I've got a group of the same frogs and experience the same shyness. One thing that really wakes up mine are crickets-- the trivs suddenly appear from every nook and chase the crickets around!

Here's my male. Been calling for the past 5-6 months before a clutch, 5 tads out of 20 eggs.

Gave them a dry season for about 3 weeks. And when we have some storm about a month ago, I spray 3 times a day and add about 1qt of water to the pond. Feeding every day instead of every other day. Couple day later, I hear a different kind of calling, then no calling for couple day. Male guarding the coco hut. I check the next day and see 20 eggs, 5-6 good eggs.

Thanks--I think I would like to do one in the future where a branch comes from about 1/5 the way from the bottom left side of a tank (funny I always want to go left to right) and stretch the length of the tank to about 1/5 from the top. Wrap with sphagnum and plant orchids and bromeliads the length of it and for the background Rhaphidophora korthallsii which I just bought from JoshH (his photo also).

Ameerega do well with male heavy groups, add a few males and you will likely see them more, if not hear them all the time.

Unfortunately, Ameerega is one of the worst genus names ever created.
