Default My R. imitator "Tarapoto' trio

Here's a ton of photos of my unsexed Imitators in their 20g extra high vivarium. I've had them a little over a month now.















The only shot I could manage with all three of them























Hope you enjoyed!

Your frogs look great! I really like the pictures your camera takes. Mind if I steal one for a desktop wallpaper?

Wow!! Beautiful tank, great pictures, and beautiful frogs!! It's funny: my Chazuta (UE line through Saurian) look just like your tarapoto. Of course their tank isn't nearly as nice.

Good-lookin' frogs and tank! What's that nice little brom you've got mounted up on the left side on the glass there? Also, what's the tank size?

Best,
Ash

The tank is a 20g extra high. Same footprint as a standard 10g, but twice as tall. That brom was sold as Neoregelia Red Waif.

The tillandsias are attached using super glue gel, while the bromeliad has its stolon pushed into a hole in the cork bark.

Nice frogs. I have the same tank with a grey tree frog in mine. I love that tank except when i have to stand on a chair to reach the bottom. Haha.

Still developing..

Daddy serenading Mommy to feed the hungry tadpole...excuse the Missus chatting in the background.



A few weeks later with the rear legs popped out...

Yes! I haven't caught her in the act though. He'll call for 40 minutes straight with her watching from a nearby leaf.

So I returned from a family vacation to find the tadpole has fully morphed and come out of the water.



It seems the parents couldn't wait either...more eggs!



I think I'm going to pull these and raise them outside the vivarium.

Here's some more shots of the other residents:

I just got a set of 4 Tarapoto froglets. Hoping they do as well as yours! Any updates? Did the pulled ones do better than the tank raised froglet?
