  1. General Discussion
    So, I bought 4 Ranitomeya Imitator 'Varaderos' from Understory Enterprises back in October. Come January I saw a male frog carrying a tadpole to a bromeliad (yay). I decided I wanted to let the frogs take care of their young, although I did add a tadpole bite once their back legs popped to round...
  2. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I have a 2.1 (or 1.2? whichever is 1 male 2 females) trio of vents, all are over a year old, so they're mature. They are all pretty active, although the male hasn't been calling as much lately. I've been keeping the tank pretty wet, and they certainly spend a lot of time in their bromeliads, but...

    I have a viv setup with three 'French Guiana' R. amazonica. I believe I have two females and one male. I setup a second viv next to the old one and got a pair (unsexed) of 'Iquitos' for it. They seemed relaxed until a few hours ago when the male in the old viv started calling. Since then, both...

    Hello froggers Have any of you observed troublesome fighting between Ranitomeya Variabilis (specifically trios, but really any amount) I am not concerned for mild play / mild bouts, I mean the kind of fighting that you need to separate frogs for. From what I can read, most Variabilis seem to...

    i have 2 very happy Vanzolinii darts: well kept and have a good home. They've never tried to escape. Last week was the last time I saw the "bolder" one. He used to love the bromeliad but hasn't been in it since his fav leaf died. He was def skinnier than the other, but there were always FF's in...

    It’s been about 6 months since I completed my first vivarium (I might post pictures of this tank). I’ve learned a lot of that. And like many of us, one vivarium just isn’t enough. I decided to go with a 30ish gallon (36x16x12) vertical glass tank that I still have to build. My goal is to make a...

    Hello, I need a little help determining what the best thumbnail frog would be for me. I have some pumilio (Bastimentos) and they are great very visible and always active, not very skittish. I would like to try a different species though and was considering the blackwater vents. Does anyone have...

    Im planning to build a vivarium. It'll be 20" tall, 12" wide and 10" deep, and i will fill it up with bromeliads, orchids and other plants. But my question is: can i keep more than one species in it? I wanted to have one ortwo pairs of R. amazonica. But how about one pair of R. amazonica and one...

    I thought I would share some photos of the latest build I am working on. Comments, suggestions and criticisms are welcome. It is a 20g tank that I had Protean do a vertical conversion with a euro vent. I plumbed the back surface of the tank for a drip wall and did a Great Stuff/coir...

    I'm probably shallow in this viewpoint, but I'm primarily interested in the Highland Sirensis dart frog, because of it's coloration. I just really like the coloration of this frog, the primary gold highlighted by the yellow. I know it's shy, so that isnt an issue. However, my concerns are...

    Started a 12x12x18 Ranitomeya imitator build recently and have used GE II Black silicone on the background for the Great Stuff foam has something to stick to. I also used it to attach a few pieces of cork bark. One is going to be a kind of floating island with some kind of plant growing out of...

    Is anyone working with this species of thumbnail? What are your experiences with regard to boldness and how successful have your breeding experiences been?

    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!

    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.

    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...
