Default Highland Sirensis (lamasi)

Hey all,

Just a question for those of you that keep highland sirensis. What temperature range do you use? I have always been the type to keep all the darts I've worked with on the hot side. Almost all I have kept over the years have responded very well to this.

I acquired some highlands and just looking to avoid a mistake if they can't handle the temps i usually provide. Right now they are doing great, eating vigorously, and appear happy and bold. Just trying to see if i need make adjustments for the their long term care.

Any input appreciated, thanks

Roy like most darts they are pretty adaptable, though they may come from more temperate cooler areas going up to 80 regularly should not be a problem for them, though I would not push it much beyond that. Frogs can handle higher temps than that but not in a stagnant tank with little air movement. Mid to upper 70's for these guys and you should have no problem getting them to breed...unless you get one of those stubborn groups of these that seem to never want to breed. With Highlands sometimes they go like gang busters and sometimes they seem to never get going. Good luck partner, I hope yours are prolific.

Thanks for responding Mark,

I guess just too many years doing my own thing and pushing limits, lol. Guess i want the best for these.

Although, there are certain frogs I have reproduced with viable egg clutches every 3 days for over a year by doing things my own way.

Sometimes the guidelines are there to be pushed amd sometimes you don't wanna take a chance.

you can counter the higher temperatures with cold water fog from a humidifier in the mornings. Never failed to get my whole group out and courting like crazy

I like frogs with racing stripes
