Default New vivs, from a new guy.

Hello all, This is my first post here. I have gotten copious amounts of information from this site and thought I should stop being a creeper and put some of my accomplishments up.

The first three pics are of my first viv a 20tall with 4 dendrobates auratus- isla toboga.

The second group is of my newly constructed 90gal oceanic viv. The tank was sitting around and I new I could accomplish more than a 20gal. Also I want some tincs.

I look forward to getting to know some fellow PDF psychos. Let me know what you think of my vivs.


Regards,
Adam

I was thinking of doing 4 Patricia tincs in my 90gal set up 3.1 if my suppilier can sex them accurately. Is this a good idea? I would appriciate feed back.

Also anyone with Patricia tincs that can offer advice would be very welcome. I plan on adding them in January some time.

I would do epipadabates rio sailida (suck at spelling apparently today). They are great group frogs, breed in water like rabbits, and are gorgeous. Look into them and you might want them more then tincs.

Ya. Shawn H (sports_doc) was selling a few. I also saw them in the classifieds a few minutes ago. They are dark brownish red with usually 3 to 5 stripes down their back of a very aqua to light cyan blue. They are also very vocal >.> The three I had prior to losing two due to insufficient time from school were loud.

What I love about this species is that they aren't the brightest and most flashiest frog and blend very will to leaf litter yet are very fun to watch when you can actually distinguish them from the litter.

They are a nice looking frog but with this set up I was wanting more flash, my isla toboga auratus are not very flashy. I do love keeping the auratus, but I wanted something larger with a bit more color.

Yeah he's a good guy.

I've yet to go to the expo, this year I'm dragging my girlfriend along and we're staying overnight.
