So I am bored in class and am wondering what order of frogs people got them in and amounts. Also how long it took you to acquire that amount of frogs and what got you started in the hobby

So As for myself I started by buying a trio of Leucomelas in a 10 gal in November of 2009 from a apartment owner whos roommate had skiped out on him and left the frogs. For a 10gal and 3 leucs i thought it was time to get into frogs and decided to buy them. After 2 months I found out they were Banded leucs. This progressed into building my first tanks which took very long to plan and diddent turn out that great. I went to a local dart frog meet and learned alot and purchased a trio of orange lamasi and a trio of Nominal imitators.
Shorty after I got
1.1 Mancreeks,
1.2 Nominal Leucs
1.1 Patricais
1.1 Blue n black Auratus ( sold)
1.1 Grean and black Auratus (sold)
0.0.3 Varaderos
1.1 Azureus
0.0.3 Varaderos ( not a mistype)
0.0.6 Mints
1.1 Gold Dust Bastamentos
1.0 Varadero ( now 2.3.2)
0.1 Azureus
0.0.3 Vanzolli (No 1.0.2)
2.1 Std Lamasi
1.1 Matechos
1.1 Citronella
1.1 Dwarf Cobalts
1.1 "southern" Cobalts Recent imports
0.0.1 Blue Jean
And tomorrow
1.1 Azureus
and at the next meet
2.0 Golden mantellas
1.0 Azureus

Can you say addicting?

So far, all I have are the 0.0.3 Orange Lamasi and they are great frogs. I wouldn't call them bold, but not nearly as shy as the accounts I've read. 2 of the 3 are in the open at least four hours a day. The other one is a much better hider.

I started with a 18x18x24 zoomed and bought 3 leucs from a local hobbyist. I then made my way to a reptile show for supplies, and only came back with 3 costa Rican green and blacks. Since then, I've got another c.r. g&b, 2 nominal imitators, 5 Panamanian auratus, 8 vittatus, 2 mancreeks, 2 tarapoto imis, 3 matecho tincs, and 2 mints.....phew.

First frogs purchased in August of 2010 were R. varadero 0.0.5 which turned out to be a 2.3 group. My 1.2 breeding group in the main display have started to lay eggs and tads every where.
0.0.5 group of R. Lamasi 'Orange' this Feb. A buddy gave me 4 tads 2 morphed out healthy 2 with SLS. He gave me 3 juvis to replace the bad morphed tads all for free.
0.1.0 R.variabilis purchased in Feb recieved this week.
Purchsed but have not recived yet(due to weather and slower growth)-
0.0.3 R. variabilis should be delivered in May
0.0.3 R. Flavovittata same shipment as R. variabilis in May

Needless to say I have work to due in the basement setting up racks and building vivs. I already know these will not be the last frogs....To many that are must haves to not have them all.

darn i thought i was going to be the first galact
0.0.1 bakhui
0.0.1 azureus
0.0.2 orange galact
0.0.1 lemon galact

Doug, why the vents? just curious kinda opposite ends of the spectrum?
Well since I am new to these cool frogs I figured I should own a few different types and see what I like the best;). I really like the vents. I think part of it is because they are a little shy and when you see two or three of them hanging out together under a broom it's a treat.

I like the Azureus because they are bold and blue.

The Galacts are kind of in between a little shy some times and other times they run around acting like they just graduated from clown college.

I will most likely stick with the larger frogs if (I said if, my wife must have been in the room) when I purchase more, well maybe some more thumbs or... I might as well admit it I'm hooked.
