Wow, where did you get those?

ABG has sucessfully bred them multiple times, I can try and get some info for you. I know they are treehole breeders.

These are not to difficult and will take larger food items. Just make sure you provide them with cups of water hidden by cork bark as they reach adulthood, very cool reproductive natural history; a phytotelmata breeding non-obligate egg feeding tree frog!

There are individuals in the states who keep them, but they are definitely not easy to find. I believe Mike Novy has a group, but they are all one sex. I think they will become more common once people get them breeding. ABG has tons of them and they breed pretty readily.
