Dendrobates azureus (I'm sure there's a million photos of these guys on this board, but I love sharing these photos)!

Hello, I built this around a 150 gallon wide tank about 6 years ago. I silicon-ed 3 10 gallon tanks inside of it on the back inside. Those are the "land" portion for planting, Foamed into the back wall different huts and planters. The front portion of the aquarium with the glass painted is about 7 inches in dept and the width of the unit (76 inches) and the height of the 10 gallon tanks (12 inches) is full of water. The 7 inch width of water is covered by a 1x8 pvc board from Lowe's. the two 4 inch caps hold 4 inch pvc thin wall canisters half filled with gravel so that a 1 quart Kerr jar sets inside for a ff feeder. I change out the ff jar with a plastic lid with vents and 1 , 1/4 inch hole for the ff to exit with a few holes in the cap to exit. This uses all of the space in the 150 gallon and circulates a drip system in from the top. I have vents with fans and a feeder hole at the top left and right side that funnels treated flies to the bottom area (they fall on the top of foamed in huts) Just replanted trying to find a heard of Highland Bronze to put in there. I have 4 tads coming tomorrow but still looking for about 4 more juvies to add to it. It is about 500 gallons including the water uhat is hidden and about 275 gallons of usable frog space. Hollar if you have any Highland Bronze for sale. Thanks

I couldn't figure out how to do the photos thing, so i turned to imgur =) https://imgur.com/gallery/CDudQho

please feel free to critique/criticize because i'm open to learning more! i think frog "number 1" has short tongue syndrome because it doesn't flick out a 1.5" tongue like its siblings and i've been giving him/her extra doses of repashy vitamin a plus... but there doesn't seem to be improvement :confused::(
anyways, "number 1" misses about 70% of the time he goes in for a "fruit walk" and ends up glomping on it with his mouth instead of the tongue flick. again, any advice/critique is welcome

are my frogs ALL too skinny???? i noticed that many frogs on this forum and online are more rotund/pudgy looking. is that healthy? i don't want anorexic frogs or to be accused of animal mistreatment!

Hello, it’s my first time posting here and wanted to ask what time of ranitomeya or oophaga could I get with certain characteristics like medium difficulty ass I own 2 tincs and froglets from them and 4 auratus starting to reproduce. Other characteristics would be colorful and not very shy. I own a 78 gallon tank and was thinking on housing 4 Ranitomeyas or small oophagas but didn’t know which.

Thank you.

Here's my tank growing in nicely View attachment 298109
One question: Do you currently have frogs in there? I’m seeing a lack of leaf litter and there’s no such thing as no leaf litter!

But seriously, if I’m correct, I see a lack of leaf litter which is essential to dart frogs. Add some (preferably magnolia leaves) and your tank is ready to go!

This is the viv for my juvenile terribs. It has more leaf litter than it appears, and also isn’t always this wet. The manzanita branches over the middle don’t serve much of a purpose, but the frogs seem to like the cover they provide. i don’t have many frog pics (they‘re camera shy), but I can try to find some old ones from when I first got them.

I've somehow managed to grow a bit of moss on one of the branches. I don't know how, as the humidity is never excessively high, but I stuck it there, and it grew. However it did it, I'm not complaining.

Ignore the terrible picture quality, the device I used for these pictures has the camera quality of a potato.
