Default Salt Creek pums info

Hi guy's.

After some information from salt Creek owners/breeders.

I have a 1.1 in a 40 x 40 x 60h
A very bold male always calling away, abd a very reclusive female that i rarely see. Not had any eggs from them, they are around 1.5-2yrs I'm ideally wanting to add another female. See if this induces some competition for the male and encourage breeding. But more importantly, more frogs to see in the viv.

What experience is out there regarding salties? Do they do well in trio's or are they best left in pairs?

Thanks for any input.
Mark

They do fine in trios. But if the "female has good weight on her, is over a year old, and the conditions are right, you should have seen some eggs by now. You could have a submissive male which doesn't call.

constant calling is another sign of multiple males in the viv in my experience.

Thanks for the input guy's.
I have considered i may not have a female, another reason i was thinking of adding one. The 2nd frog does react to the calling. Its always close by at that time.

If say i had 2 males, would a female addition cause squabbling between the males?
Is male heavy a problem with Salties.

With the size of you're tank they'll probably be ok. Post a pic?

Thanks for your help.
I'll sort some viv pics.
They are actually in a 45x30x 60h which is quite overgrown with climbers, but has plenty of broms and laying pots.
I've just been building a 40x40x60h and going to move them over so thought this would be a good time to add another frog.

Anyway I could identify a submissive male?

Looking at them together, the body shapes are very similar.
The male does have a dark patch on his throat, the other doesn't.

Was the tank dice you listed originally in cm or inches, sorry it's hard tell with the pic. Do they generally hang out together Or does One hide most the time?

Sorry, I've confused things haven't i.
The viv pictured is there current home. Its a 30x45x60 LxDxH (cm's) i have just stripped a massive amount of climbers out.

Im in the process of setting up a 40x40x60 and thought this would be a good time to add the additional female frog (although im liking how the current viv looks now after the gardening)...

The 2nd frog, the orange one is never seen apart from when the male is calling. When he's calling the orange one is within touching distance.
Im hoping with the viv stripped back i will be able to see whats going on a bit better.

Mark.
