Hello!

This week most frogs have been calling and started laying clutches again after the end of the simulated dry season.
This means most frogs are also very bold now so I was able to take some good shots this week.


1.0 P.Terribilis. He was calling on top of this monkeypod waiting for his female to join him.

2.1 D.T.Azurues. The female is tapping the male(s) to make them ready for breeding. After the males call, she looks for a perfect spot to lay her clutch. The 2 males are already +15 years old and by far the best breeders in my collection.

1.0 D.T.Patricia. Was calling his female. She was already in the trumpetnut waiting for him to join.

1.0 O.Escudo. In march he will be joined by a new female.

0.0.2 O.P.Bastimentos "Red Frog Beach", 2-3 month old F1 offspring.

1.1 D.T.Tumucumaque. The female is tapping the male to make him ready for breeding. After the male calls, she looks for a perfect spot to lay her clutch.

The colors on the bastimentos are crazy!
When they get older it always faints a bit. But I totaly agree! :D

To get an idea of the color change; +-12months old F1, same line / same parents :

Caught one of my F1 O.P.Bastimentos was watering a clutch. The parentalcare of these animals is just amazing to watch.

Thanks for the compliment!

Tbh, I think all this is a little too much for most people and I probably agree.. πŸ˜„

But you are absolutely correct! Most vivariums realy have the potential to be amazing eyecatchers in interior design and realy make a room spectaculair! I've seen more than one tank and cabinet on this forum that should be in an art museum.

I think the aquascaping world is the best example of this, but I see vivariums have the same or even have more potential! We just need to catch up with them. πŸ˜‰

F2 O.P.B 'red frog beach' juvenile raised on a cartenoid mix made by my friend @johanovic.
He also took this photo last sunday.



The result is amazing and the frogs not even maintain their color, but the color of the frogs is also pretty much stays similar to the imported frogs in my collection.

Photo of our import 2012 male for comparison :




*Note : The F1 parents also gained more redish color from the cartenoids, but they never regained colors like the above animals. So they remain more orange/ fainted redish.

It is also important to know the F1 female raised the F2 tadpoles feeder eggs while she already consumed flies supplemented with the cartenoids.

I believe this is very import since the color on the first batch of offspring that received the cartenoids mix, did not completely came out like the imported frogs. Their colors also fainted a little bit while aging, but not as much as the offspring I've bred over the years. At that time the first batch were tadpoles, the mother die not yet receive the cartenoid mix in her dieet.

Johnovic used the mix on E.Tricilor aswell in attempt to bring out their flasmarks stronger.

I'll leave it to him to post the result of that test.

I know other fellow Belgian and Dutch hobbyist received some of his mix, but I have no idea what animals they gave the supplementation or what results they had.
Thanks for sharing Johan and Nicolai!
I'm quite excited to test on the Tumucumaque aswell with a new batch of supplementation.

Some offspring kept their orange legs, other got yellow when using Repashy Superpig and stimulant.

We'll see next year how this turns out πŸ™‚
Finaly I found 2 more Vriesea Erythrodactylon pups that I can make disappear in the 2nd 70x50x65cm vivarium. Just a little more growth in this tank, probably add a few more Tillandsia's and it's good to go for frogs to inhabit.
