  1. Parts & Construction
    Hi all! I’m starting a thread to document the construction of my 10g vert vivarium. I love the idea of making a small and ecosystem in my room. The design isn’t perfect, and nor is my construction, but I had fun making it. I’m hoping the viv will fit a pair of Ranitomeya, either imitator...

    Hi! I'm a beginner in the hobby, or maybe not even that, as I don't yet have frogs. I have been planning a vivarium for years and just now got around to building it. It's not completely finished and definitely needs time to settle before I add frogs anyway, but I'm very excited to do so in maybe...
  3. General Discussion
    It's been a while (five weeks) since I've seen evidence of a couple of my frogs and I'm worried. I know that can sometimes be normal, but I could use some advice. I recently took the leap from Auratus to keeping some thumbnails. I purchased a group of four juvenile R. imitators (Veradaro)...

    This is the 18x18x24 exo terra I just finished planting last week or so. As of now it houses 2 female R. imitator Chazuta, while I wait for a male to pop up for sale. Hopefully I'll get good growth soon to cover up all that exposed epiweb. Thanks for looking.

    I was setting up an extra 10 gallon viv when local DB user (and all around great guy) RichardA offered to sell me his male Imitator Chazuta. I tossed in some cuttings from another viv and got two more broms from Josh’s Frogs and then went and picked up my first dart. Here are the pics

  7. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I recently had my fist Imitator tadpole hatch and was just confused on when to start feeding it? Its been one day and its now in the cup with an Indian Almond leaf. I have Tadpole bites and Spirulina powder from NEHerp. I Know you are suppose to wait a few days but I'm confused how many? Most...

    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 :eek: Hope you enjoyed!

    My lone male intermedius: Old picture of him transporting from when he and the now deceased female were breeding. Picture of the male today after reintroducing him to the freshly ant-free vivarium. The intermedius vivarium: This tank has been running for nearly two years now, and the now...

    Hi, my name's Michael and I've been a lurker here on Dendroboard for quite a while and I thought it was about time I posted something. Here's a little something about my short experience in keeping dart frogs before I jump into what I just observed in my new varaderos: I first joined in 2008...

    Has anyone installed a fan to ventilate a R. Imitator tank? I'm trying to combat condensation, but don't want to compromise the humidity level. They're in a 20 gallon standard fish tank with a glass lid.
  13. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I've got a male Imitator who has been carrying around the same tadpole for over 24 hours. He has successfully transported tadpoles before, and I made sure there were plenty of available bromeliad pools, but I'm starting to wonder what's going on. Is this normal behavior? How long could a tadpole...

    Hey everyone, Thought I'd kick off my new build thread for my pair of Varadero Imitators! I'm building in a 18x18x24 and will be hooking up a MistKing starter system as well as some moonlights. In terms of materials I'll be using some tree fern panels and will use the GS method to hold together...

    So I finally got this guy to the planting stage so I figured I would move the pictures out of my construction journal and over to this area. We're not sure what will ultimately call this home yet, but it will be some form of imitator. This week I have an order of plants coming in from Black...
