variabilis

  1. Beginner Discussion
    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...
  2. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello - I've just had my R Variabilis 1.1.1 for about three months, and up until today they were a 1.0.2 set. About three weeks ago the male first started calling (so I knew one male), and then today I found these eggs (hence I know one female) - but I can't tell if the eggs have gone bad...

    Temps between 72-76F Humidity is around 80% Used to always hang out 3/4 height of viv in film canister, found her in leaf litter Diet: Melanos dusted with repashy calcium plus every other day and vitamin once a week Hasn't laid any eggs yet more than a year old. She puffed up over night, and I...

    I started constructing an 18x18x24 Exo Terra for a 2.1 trio of Southern Variabilis that I will be getting in about 2 weeks. This will be a build log on how I did what I did. This build is heavily inspired by the Twisted Root build (although I did not have a twisted root), but in reality I have...

    Hey guys - so in the past weeks I've been working on this 55 gallon split build. I picked the tank up at the $1/gallon sale a little while back and have been putting it together ever since. It's my first real start to finish tank and it's intended to replace my old 55 gallon currently housing my...
  6. Identification Forum
    I've had this guy for a while now, probably around 7 months old. It's in a tank with a calling male (they've grown up together in the same tank their entire life). This one started out a little smaller than the male but has since gotten a little fatter than him. Also based on its pear shape...
  7. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I was wondering wich male:female ratio is the best for keeping a trio. 2.1 or 1.2? I know it is highly dependant on the specific species of frog but generally speaking which do people prefer? I've read about males fighting other males and also females eating other females eggs so it seems like...
  8. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I have a tadpole that is 5 months old now. It only has very tiny back legs right now that seem awkwardly proportioned for the size of the tadpole and they don't seem to be growing that much (first noticed them about 2 weeks ago I think). I was wondering if this is normal or if there's something...
  9. Identification Forum
    I have a group of 4 that are just about 5 months old now. Any guesses on the sex? No calling yet, but I've tried playing calls with no response. Biscuit: Skaro: And the last two have this body shape, where you can see the back arches.
  10. Ranitomeya
    I thinking about getting some R. Variabilis for a 12x12x18 but I have a few questions. My main question has to do with choosing to purchase Southern, or highland variabilis. How do they differ in terms of boldness, size, vivarium needs, and so on? Second, How many could I keep on a...
  11. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hey Everyone, I have several northern variabilis that are very close to having their front legs pop. Once they do how long should I wait to tilt their container / what else do I need to do. Should I reduce the amount of water? Thanks, Nathan

    Today I received a group of Southern Variabilis & a pair of Varadero from Understory Enterprises. And I must say, I am SO happy!! Mr. & Mrs. Varadero! Mr. Varadero checking out his new surroundings So impressed with the female UE gave me! Shes very orange, my iphone just makes her look a...
  13. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    i have a trio 1.2 of r. variabilis "southerns" and have laid several cluthes of eggs. the 1st clutch i left in the tank just to see if they would develop there. they ended up molding over in a few days. 2nd clutch i pulled them the next day and placed them in a tupperware container with a few...
  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    my southerns just laid their 2 clutch. im wondering how much will the flies mess with the eggs if any? im asking because i havent decided if i was pulling them or not. any thoughts or experiences? thank you
  15. Ranitomeya
    I have two Variabilis that I purchased as a "probable pair." I'm unsure of their age, however I have had them for 3 to 4 months, and they have grown very little if at all. So far I have heard no calling and seen no signs of aggression between the two. I've only seen them be within an inch of...
  16. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    i came to the conclusion i have 1.2. today i found 6 eggs which none are good. even though none are good, im still pretty excited. any good advice on removing tads from film canisters withought damaging them?
  17. Beginner Discussion
    About a week ago I was asking which thumbs are low calling and bold and got Variabilis as an answer from a lot of you. Still Im just really undecided on the Varadero, Tarapoto, and Variabilis despite the call levels as they are the most colorful looking ones in my price range. Everyone says pick...
  18. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Several weird things happened in my R variabilis viv today. I noticed that the clay background was cracking in some areas from being too dry, yet a brom fell completely out of the wall because it was too wet and gushy there! I'll probably switch to non-clay from now on, but that's side...
  19. The Lounge
    I just love my three Southern Variabilis I bought from Adam Hess (thedude) last weekend, July 10th, 2011. I'd probably post positive feedback for him for selling me such nice healthy frogs, but I don't have enough posts to post something in the vendor feedback. So I think I'll just post 24 more...
  20. General Discussion
    hey all, looking to broaden my frog horizons and try something new. Im loving and researching ranitomeya as a viable option, just thought id ask how people enjoy theirs who have them. what tank setups they seem happiest in, etc. Ranitomeya variabilis "Highland" has caught my eye in...
