Default New D. tinctorius 'Oelemarie viv! Lots of photos!

Just finished this tank this week. And thought Id share a few photos with everyone.



Background finished.

Drainage layer and substrate divider installed

Substrate layer installed

Nice deep tank shot before leaves were added

Leaves added

Another angle showing the 2 pools where water will fill in over time




A couple of planted shots.


Full Tank Shot

Shingler is Marcgravia rectiflora

Begonia 'Abu Dhabi' there are 2 cuttings in there.


Unknown aroid that was sold to me as Syngonium SP. I highly doubt that it is a Syngonium.


Future inhabitants.
Wishbone (Probable female)



I will get a couple of shots of Biohazard (Confirmed male) later today

ENJOY!


Todd

Nice! I really like what you did with the wood. Gives the frogs a second level and nice hidey spots.

The second tier was the main reason for the driftwood that I used. The extra cool hiding spots were just a bonus LOL

Exellent job man! Needs more plants though, Maybe some broms? otherwise it's very natural!

Thanx for the input! I have absolutely no intention of putting bromeliads in this tank or any other D. tinctorius vivarium. Its just not very natural for them save for maybe a few terrestrial bromeliads. They will not make use of the bromeliads either.No need to add much more as far as plants , give it 3 months... that tank will be crazy!
Plant list so far
about 7-10 cuttings of Selaginella serpens
5 cuttings of Pilea 'Silver Tree'
Unknown aroid
2 cuttings of Begonia 'Abu Dhabi'
3 cuttings of Marcgravia rectiflora
Im thinking I may add an orchid or 2 on the background but given the amount of space I have and the species of frog that the tank is setup for Im not finding any that meet that criteria.

Todd,

Both of your new vivs look great. Once the plants grow in, they will look awesome. Good choices in Tincs also.

Thanx Don, that was exactly my plan.

The Oelemarie are a morph that Ive been working with on and off for years. with some incidents with my original collection Ive finally acquired a probable female for my 6 year old male and plan to put them together in this viv in November/December.(This puts the female around 18+ months old allowing her to reach full maturity as opposed to just sexual maturity)


I will be adding more photos as time moves on and the tank fills in.

Nice looking viv, Todd. I think that the Syngonium will produce just the kind of canopy that tinctorius love (especially without taking up too much floor space from the frogs).

Best of luck with the Oelemaries, Richard.

Thanx guys !

Richard, that "Syngonium" is one of my favs in the collection. Im hoping it continues to spread a bit. It shouldnt get much taller than that tho


I added about 3 more pieces of Pilea 'Silver Tree' yesterday which im sure Ill regret within the next 3 months LOL.
Also the smell of the silicone has faded. However Ive noticed a new scent that seems quite strong. Upon further investigation this seems to be from the substrate mix. With the main contributor of this scent seemingly coming from the Fir bark.
Woodlice and springtails have been added
Im hoping to have Wishbone in her new viv by the end of the month

Hey guys, I thought Id share a few recent pix of this vivarium.





Also i put the male in with the female for a few minutes this past weekend. Mostly to see how she was sizing up. But also because it would give me a decent chance to get a photo of him (His tank doesnt allow for easy photographing)

So heres a shot of Biohazzard as well as a few shots of the 2 together.


Wishbone is on the left, Biohazzard is on the right



Wishbone is on the top, Biohazzard is on bottom


She is about the same size as him at this point. Now 15 months old I figured she will only have a few more short months to out grow him

I hope everyone enjoys the pix!

To quote something funny I heard over on Caudata (by Jan, one of the mods), edited for frogs instead of salamanders-

In my experience, fantastica tend to be shy and hide, imitators tend to be outgoing and tincs are slimy puppies.

Thanks for posting the pics. The two heights from the driftwood is awesome and gave me some ideas for my setup.

Hey guys, I was playing around with exposure today and got some shots that better capture the colors of these beautiful frogs!

Here are a couple of shots of Biohazzard still in his original viv.



Heres a shot of Wishbone!


Begonia 'Abu Dhabi'



Pilea 'Silver Tree'


Enjoy!

The tank looks great... it's nice to see a solely terrestrial type tank once in a while. Good looking frogs as well.

Yeah Im really liking the feel of a tinc viv without Bromeliads!
So much so that all of my tinc vivs are brom free except my Azureus which are getting a new viv soon anyways

Thanx!

So I couldnt wait any longer! Wishbone has reached a size to where I didnt think an additional couple of weeks/months would matter and decided to add Biohazzard a month ahead of plan
Heres a few pics I took!

Biohazzard!


Wishbone!


Courting!


Calling!







Enjoy!

Thanx guys. I think the frogs were feeling a little under appreciated with only 1 response in several days time :/

Here are a few more photos as well as an updated photo of their home.



Wishbone! Look at that belly!





Viv as of 5/15/11


Im not sure if I shared this in another thread but here is an old pic of Biohazzard



Enjoy!

That viv has gone nuts! Love the light green aroid peaking out of a sea of darker greens. Very pretty.

Biohazzard is a 6 year old male that I got about 5 years ago as a 10-12 month old sexed subadult male form Joe Nickerson.
Wishbone is a 17-18 month old female I picked up last December from Alpha Pro as a 6-7 month old possible female

Courtship so far but no eggs

Yes the viv has gone nuts! Especially the Pilea! Also in there is Selaginella serpens which i have to sort the photos and upload.

Dendrobates tinctorius is an amazing species of dart frog to work with. They are bold, brightly colored and a great amount of personality!

This morph (Oelemarie) has always been one of my favorites
